Leena Taneja's The Audrey Hepburn Classic - Kolkatta Fashion Week II Day 1

"‘the Audrey Hepburn Classic" by Leena Taneja - Kolkatta Fashion Week II Day 1, Time: 4:30 pm at MSA // (Sundarbans)
Showstopper Paoli Dam

Designer - A graduate of Loreto College, Kolkata, Leena had her formal training in fashion design from Miss Myers Institute of Fashion Designing; Kolkata; South Delhi Polytechnic, New Delhi and also a Diploma course from NIFT Kolkata.

She launched her label LENAZ and kept creating garments for the south-east Asian market, never looking to retail from India, except creating garments for few of her social and celebrity friends.

Literally forced by her friends, she opened her design studio in 2005 and ventured into retailing. Today her collection can be found at some of the most exclusive outlets of Kolkata, Mumbai, Delhi, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Milan and New York.

She has just opened her first flagship store “Leena Taneja” at the 74 Shakespeare Sarani, Kolkata to much critical acclaim and success.

Leena has yet again come along with a new line of Indo Western and Western Wears. The collection, aptly named as ‘the Audrey Hepburn Classic Collection’ gives the gentle beauty along with boldness synonymous with the late petite actress.

She is showcased her signature tunics, beautifully embroidered and styled on natural fabrics like cotton, silk, georgettes and chiffons. As always, the colour theme is metallic with Swarovski, sequins, metals, Zardozi and finest embroideries. The look is ornate, rich and glamorous with a dramatic and outstanding feel of style. Sensual delicate muslins, sombre and finely embroidered crochet and exuberant satin complement the essence of this collection.

The tunics can be worn both as Indo and Western Wears. Leena is also presents her new collection of Kaftans and Long dresses.

This is her tribute to the women who always want to be known for their bold, beautiful and sexy desire. Women, who are assertive, self-assured and independent and enjoy life to the fullest.
