Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan marked another first after her movie debut as he walked the ramp for the first time at the FDCI India Couture Week (ICW) 2019 on Friday. Her rumoured boyfriend, actor Kartik Aryan, and brother Ebrahim Ali Khan were among the audience.

Khan was the showstopper for designers Falguni and Shane, who showcased their annual couture collection.

“This was the first time I walked on the ramp, and I would be a massive liar if I say I wasn’t nervous. I was actually extremely nervous. But I had a lot of fun also,” Khan said.

The ‘Simba’ actress wore an ivory trailing lehenga with a buckle that was densely embroidered with resham threads and embellished with sequins, and a matching full-sleeve blouse. She completed her look with glossy make-up and beachy hair waves.

Falguni and Shane Peacock showcased a collection titled Bonjour Ajmer, which was an ode to the pink city of Jaipur. The collection was dominated by ivories, beige, white and golden shades.

Falguni said: “Today, even if the wedding is taking place in India, the bride wants to look like an international bride. Our collection is inspired by the architecture and every thing that Jaipur has got. We have tried to execute the whole idea in a modern way. The collection reflects the idea.”
