The beautiful romantic island of Mauritius was the inspiration for Ranna Gill’s collection. From the multi hues of the island’s landscape, the shades of water, palms, sunny beaches and the dazzling sun, Ranna's resort wear line moved effortlessly from dawn to dusk. Using lace and tulle for the first time, the designer added crepe, chiffon, georgette, silk with exotic prints to highlight the long maxis, easy comfort wear and dramatic formal offerings. Colours ranged from peach, golden yellow to azure blue and balmy green and then onto pristine white and cobalt blue.
The prints reflected the beauty of the island with fauna, flora and landscapes appearing on the sexy swimwear, blouses and tunics. The kaftans were ideal for lazing on the beach or making an impression at the sea-side barbecue. Kerchief hemlines for dresses created great comfort wear, asymmetric halters, cute boleros, slinky shifts and sheaths made delightful fashion statements. Embellishments came in the form of crafts of Mauritius with thread as well as glittering silver and gold zari as placement embroidery on yokes, sides of garments, and all over.
Making a stylish show stopping entry was 'Vicky Donor' actress Yami Gautam, who looked absolutely gorgeous in a pristine white gown luxuriously covered with silver embroidery.
