TITLE – LOVE IS,
COLLECTION NOTE –
‘Love is,’ is inspired by the monument of love – Taj Mahal. The details of the collection seek to translate the visionary saga of love by borrowing from the beauty of Taj Mahal. From transcribing the innumerable motifs of the architectural gem on ensembles to varnishing them with refined adornments of Swarovski crystals, pearls, mirrors, sequins and beads. The collection is a medley of colours that scale from mellow muted tones such as baked beige and pearl ivory, to pastels like the rose pink and mint green, even extending to deeper tones like emerald green, royal purple, turquoise and valiant poppy. A splash to metallic hues viz. silvers and gold elevate the grandeur while adding a dash of glamour. The intricate crafting techniques replicated the structural marvel on the fabric via architectural motifs of domes and minarets, filigree of foliage, and motifs of the century’s fauna and birds. The line is innovational in terms of method but strongly rooted in terms of approach, a signature aesthetic of the label. The cuts are traditional yet au courant, think trailed Lehenga, fitted-and-flared silhouettes, and ball gown-style Lehengas that make for a befitting wedding day bridal trousseau.
