Shilpa turns designer for Rajasthan Royals’ fan wear

JAIPUR: Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty has used her fashion instincts to design a new ‘official fan wear collection’ for her Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Rajasthan Royals, in association with apparel brand Provogue.

She even walked the ramp to showcase the creations. The IPL’s sixth season opens Wednesday (today).
“We are excited about this new venture with Provogue. Designing clothes has been a wonderful experience and I am delighted to have had a chance to do it for our fans. The collection is innovative, high quality, originally designed and priced to suit the taste and desires of our fan community,” Shilpa said in a statement.

The idea behind the line is to embody suave and sophisticated yet youthful and fun dressing at the same time.

The exclusive yet-to-be-launched line features a range of linen shirts and polo T-shirts in colour palettes comprising shades of blues, greens and pastels.

Taking a break from their on-field performance, the entire Rajasthan Royals brigade including cricketers Rahul Dravid, Ajinkya Rahane, Shaun Tait, Brad Hogg and Kevon Cooper, walked the ramp displaying Provogue’s special merchandise at an event on Monday night.

The high point of the evening for Provogue’s grand collection was the dazzling Shilpa, who sashayed down the ramp with panache in the fan wear designed by her.
