The clothes are sheer creative freaks - a trait that's distinctly Rina Dhaka. They are unpredictable yet at the same time elegant.

But not everybody can carry off the stuff that comes out of her atelier. You need to have the right attitude and the style to carry them off.

Those who figure on her list include supermodel Naomi Campbell, Uma Thurman, Lara Dutta and Diana Hayden.

Her work has featured in the top style magazines in the West such as Marie Claire, Madam Figaro, Vogue, Vanity Fair besides a host of other publications.

Rina's forte is the harmonious blend of body and soul. Her clothes express the personality of the wearer.

The present collection talks about the various moods of a woman. Various styles and periods are borrowed from to make the clothes convey this challenging subject.

To create clothes that can convey the various moods of a woman is not a subject the uninitiated would even go near. Rina has not just taken it on, she has dealt with it competently. A culmination of many years of work has resulted in a collection of this sort.

Check out the collection at the Designer's Lounge at Mina Road.
