Shilpa Reddy to unveil collection on NYs Hudson River

Designer Shilpa Reddy is all set to showcase her work at a fashion show in New York. The show will be held on a magnificent boat on the Hudson River. Touted to be a visual fiesta, complete with a backdrop of New York's hypnotic skyline and iconic masterpieces including the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center, Jessica Minh Anh's show at which the new collection, Floral Geometry, will be displayed will be held on March 19.

Shilpa announced this at an event held at N District, Jubilee Hills, recently. Actress Regina Cassandra and former minister Dr J Geeta Reddy graced the event. The former Miss India was the first Indian designer to showcase her collection on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris; she was a part of Minh Anh’s J Autumn Show 2014.

“I feel elated to present the collection. As an Indian designer, it is indeed a proud moment for me and the fashion industry,” said Shilpa Reddy. “I used the traditional Pochampally weave and flirted a little with floral inspirations for the new collection. A century old technique of colourful threads intricately woven on traditional looms is used to create the Telangana ikkat or tie-and-dye pattern. Though the outfits are created using Indian fabrics they are styled to suit New York’s fashion palate,” Reddy added.
