Actress-singer Sophie Choudry will be walking the ramp for debut designer Abha Choudhary at the forthcoming Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017. Abha will present her collection named ‘Coral 101’, on the fifth day of the event, which begins from February 1.
Sophie said she finds walking the ramp more daunting than performing during her shows in front of thousands of people. “I absolutely love walking the ramp. Of course I find it more nerve-wrecking than performing in front of 20,000 people.
But Lakme Fashion Week is a super prestigious event and it’s always a pleasure to be a part of it! This year I’m walking for Abha Choudhary and can’t wait to set the Ramp on fire,” Sophie said.
Talking about her collection, Nagpur-based Abha said it will be a blend of easy flowing fabrics like georgettes & chiffons. (ALSO READ: Iulia Vantur to make a Splash with Salman Khan at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2017?)
“I am excited to present my collection at the 6 Degree Studio. This resort wear ’17 collection reinforces the label’s approach to design with silhouettes that express freedom, amalgamating summery lines and drapes apt for a sojourned state of mind.”
Apart from Sophie, the gorgeous Padma Lakshmi will also be walking the ramp for designer Tarun Tahiliani. This will mark her debut at the Lakme Fashion Week 2017. Ramp regulars like Neha Dhupia and Sonakshi Sinha are also touted to walk as showstoppers. Speculation is that Alia Bhatt and Huma Qureshi, who have their releases Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya and Jolly LLB 2 coming up soon, may also walk the ramp. However, all eyes are going to be on Kareena Kapoor Khan, who will be walking the ramp for the first time post her delivery. She will turn showstopper for Anita Dongre.
