Minnku explores exotic kaleidoscopic colour play on her garments and accessories from Minksse. Each piece carries the unmistakable burst of bold colours and free flowing formation of patterns, each photograph taken anywhere or an artwork is encapsulated magically into a timeless piece of “Art” on a garment.
SIGNATURE STYLES: A bright MINKSSE scarf from my collection besides a lot of flowy kaftans, gowns, handbags and sarees.
BIGGEST COMPLIMENTS: You bring cheer and joy to the world with your beautiful and vibrant MINKSSE scarves, kaftans and sarees. Why do you need models and showstoppers when you pull off your own style statements in your collections so beautifully?
LATEST FESTIVE FASHION TRENDS: Festivals are not only associated with rituals and remembrances but also serve to showcase new trending fashionable wardrobes. Heritage jewellery is making its revival. Combinations like polka dots in any clothing can convert a regular sari or Salwar Kameez to an innovative outfit worthy of a model. It’s for the confident and global woman. A long flowy, floor length Anarkali gowns are still in fashion (from a simple flair to one with large number of kalis). A straight cut lehenga looks stunning when worn with crop tops. Digital prints in sarees and lehengas are hot this festive season for a trendy and contemporary look. Traditional drapes can be paired with designer and unique 3/4 sleeve blouses in black lace or Kutchi work. Shimmer or net plazzos can be paired with unique printed kurtis or suits to rock any social gathering this festive season.
FESTIVE SEASON HUES: Soft Peach, Lavender, Olive, Semolina, Electric Green, Raspberry, Soft Turquoise, Periwinkle and lots and lots of Metallics.
