Mumbai, 26th of December 2018
“For their Mumbai reception, Kapil and Ginni asked them to come up with a concept that is rich and traditional as well as modern at the same time.”
For Kapil, they have made a classic black silk bandhgala jacket paired with a pair of slim cut pants. The jacket features tonal resham thread embroidery, used as a painterly homage to depict an artwork of florals and foliage derived from the works of the iconic 19th century British textile designer William Morris. The look will be finished off with a pair of bespoke embroidered shoes.
Ginni’s reception lehenga will be a lavish ode to an archival 18th century European Chintz textile from our personal collection. The lehenga features a melange of motifs- birds of paradise, blooming lotus blossoms, brimming Vases of Plenty; rendered on tulle using delicate resham aari embroidery, chaawal-tanka stitches,nalki and nakshi, imported sequins,crystals and multi-hued pearls. The lehenga is paired with a sequin encrusted corset and wispy tulle dupatta.
