Huma also said that one should not try to modify their body just because someone else doesn’t like the way you are. “Don’t be embarrassed about your body. Yes, as an actress, if I have to play a model or wear something where I need to be super toned, I would obviously love to work towards that but that is the part of my job. But my real life is mine and this is how I look. So don’t be apologetic about how you look,” she said. The actress also recalled her childhood memories when she used to get teased by her schoolmates because of her body weight. “I was quite a chubby kid so I used to get teased by schoolmates because of my body weight,” said Huma. The “Gangs of Wasseypur” fame actress looked like a true diva when she walked the ramp for Rimple and Harpreet in dull gold lehanga with antique zari detailing and a tulle trail. She completed the look with minimal jewellery and hair wide open. The designer duo presented a collection titled “The eternal wanderlust”, inspired by nomads and wanderers who used to abound in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (in Pakistan), the Thar and Sahara deserts, ancient Persia and Syria.
The duo used hand crafted textures created by intricate fabric manipulation and crocheting, monogrammed coins, weaves of delicate tulles and gossamer silks. Also, there were tessellations inspired by Islamic Art that were juxtaposed with fine hand embroideries to veritably breathe life onto the surfaces of each ensemble. The silhouettes comprised of capes and robes, sheer billowy jackets and regal cloaks. Sharing her experience of walking on ramp for the designer-duo, Huma told IANS: “I have done a shoot with them and I really like their bridal work. It’s interesting to walk for them. Also since the fashion week was happening in Delhi so I thought why not. I always look for excuses to come back to Delhi.” Also spotted at the show was cricketer Virendra Sehwag accompanied by wife Aarti.
