Rina Dhaka presented ‘PAST INTO PRESENT’ Glamour’s Show

Ace designer Rina Dhaka has presented “Past Into Present” fall/winter 2012-13 collection on 30th August 2012 at hotel Oberoi, New Delhi in association with 3C company. Show was high on glamour and style. Rina Dhaka revisited the Indian design iconography to lend to it a rich dose of her signature oomph. Before the show began, a bunch of girls walked the ramp for their charity organisation, Angels Networks, received the proceed from the sale of ten dresses donated by Rina. Uniqueness of the show was, it started ramp walk by actress Nathalia Kaur and Sonal Chauhan walked as a show stopper.
Guests were seen enjoying over cocktail greeting to each other. The eminent guests were spotted from fashion, business and politics including kamal nath, Sashi Tharoor and his wife Sunanda Tharoor, Farooq Abdulla, Firoz Gujral, Ritu Berry , Bobby Chaddha, Vikram Baidyanath , Tanisha Mohan, Manpreet Brar, Varun bahl, Rohit Gandhi, Suhel seth, Sabnam Singhal, Megha Bhatia Pallavi Luhara and many more.
Rina Dhaka takes heritage forward, enriching it with her inimitable style and soft, sensual appeal. She travels through India, extensively using intricate tribal embroidery from the regions of Bhuj and some made in the heartland of Uttar Pradesh re arranging them in her New Delhi atelier. According to Rina, “Every stone you touch in this country turns into gold. Every hand- craft has a story to tell. My collection for the winter of 2012 simply fast tracks Indian influences to a lyrical yet modern realm.”
Tribal motifs and the vibrant mirror work of Bhuj get recreated in the form of prints as Rina superimposes them with a vintage looking lattice motif in sequin. Dreamy chiffons combine with cotton tulle, nets and satin to blend in fitted forms with controlled volume. A sense of transparency with decorous highlights in thread embroidery gives the collection its peekaboo appeal.Taking an inspiration from the ethos of The 3C Company, a leader of Green Revolution in Delhi NCR, Rina synergizes her collection with the company’s motto to create care conserve, what we as citizens of the earth have inherited as our natural resources. Says Mr. Vidur Bharadwaj, Director – The 3C Company “Rina for this collection takes a conservationist’s route dabbling with the craft reserve of India. She refreshes past to fit a modern way of design which falls with our philosophy of using the principals of ancient Indian architecture and wrapping them with modern technology and materials.” Hair and makeup courtesy Silhouette by the Oberai, New Dehi and Jewellary by Bharany jewellers.
