Shyamal & Bhumika’s couture collection, celebrated their princess muse, using tiers of eco-friendly matka silks, raw silks, fine crepes, and georgettes; with diaphanous tulle and organza to dress her for flamboyant operas and picturesque weddings. Fragile embroidery in age-old techniques of aari, zardozi and pitta entwine into elaborate drapes and structured sleeves with tumbling vines, floating bouquet, delicate petals and vintage crests adding fragility to eccentric Versallian costumes. Vintage rose gold zari threads and silk threads are intricately embroidered into exaggerated floral and scalloped hems, over layered with sequins, giving a painterly effect and softness to the romance-inspired collection that makes costume couture relevant to their young muse. A mélange of unique vintage colors of English rose pink, ochre, moon grey, dusty mint, muted ivory, champagne complimented with vivid shades of midnight blue, emerald green and crimson reds create a sight to behold.
"We are very excited to showcase our couture collection Muse of Mirrors at India Couture Week 2018. This collection is very special to us, we have used some of the most elaborate techniques in couture. Our vision as designers has always been to take ‘India to the World’, using fashion as a medium to connect global audiences to the rich and glorious crafts and artisan techniques of India. With this collection we have continued on this mission, reflecting the beautiful relationship between traditional and modern India. We are thrilled to present our labor of love on this esteemed platform," Shyamal & Bhumika said about their association with India Couture Week 2018.
"This is my first ever appearance on the couture runway and I couldn’t have imagined anybody better than Shyamal & Bhumika to make this debut with! Shyamal and Bhumika for me are unique designers because they have a distinct vision and stunning craftsmanship. Their designs truly capture the essence of Indian romanticism, like no other. I resonate with their utopian vision and the way their clothes embody the modern Indian woman. The Shyamal Bhumika woman is someone who is full of complexities while being strong and in touch with her femininity. She confidently takes on life with a deep-rooted pride in her heritage and culture, seamlessly adapting to contemporary times," Kiara Advani said. (RR)
