'Maharaja' collection from Shyamal and Bhumika Shodhan

Grandeur and Glitz come onto the Ramp with the Shyamal and Bhumika Shodhan Collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012. Called the “Maharaja”, it was a collection from Shyamal and Bhumika Shodhan that recreated the grandeur and glory of royalty from the past at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.

With custom designed motifs for every garment, the perfectly coordinated men's and women's bridal outfits gave a new direction to wedding trousseaux for Him and Her.The silhouettes were reminiscent of the Mughal era with chogas, kalidar lehengas, Sherwanis, paneled kurtas for men and embroidered kali details for saris, angarkhas, lehengas, dupattas and cholis making a dramatic impact on the catwalk. Known for their lush ornate creations, the designing duo had zardozi, metal wire, zari peeta, aari and Marodi embroidery to add to the beauty of the creations.

Velvet was the favoured fabric for the pair as it appeared for sherwanis, kurtas, cholis, saris and even for dupattas and shawls; while net brocade and georgette added to the glamour of the collection. The colour palette was obviously rich to match the theme with red, wine, jade, black, maroon, teal, purple, ivory, blue, ruby, champagne, beige and gold painting a luxurious story.
 
Men’s wear was opulent in style and detailing almost recreating the grandeur of the Mughal courts. Heavily embellished sherwanis, chogas, kurtas and Jodhpuri jackets were worn with dhotis, salwars or churidars and imposing shawls or dupattas.
 
Women’s wear had floor length panelled kurtas that floated down the catwalk in the regal splendour. The multi fabric saris – net, brocade and velvet - created a magnificent look for the traditional attire. The lehengas fully encrusted with zardozi embroidery will definitely gladden the hearts of many a blushing bride.
 
Detailing played a major role as placement embellishments were given a greater dimension to recreate royal grandeur.
 
The “Maharaja” collection from Shyamal and Bhumika Shodhan was an exquisite bridal offering that will have a timeless appeal and will surely turn into heirloom pieces.
