Modernist & minimalist bridal wardrobe for Indian women
16
Mar '13
For this new collection Abraham & Thakore takes a look at Indian wedding dressing from a modernist and somewhat minimal perspective. We reinterpret traditional occasion dressing into a sleek, modern 21st century bridal wardrobe for the contemporary Indian woman.

The lehenga is a long pleated skirt worn with a crisply tailored top. In a play on androgyny, trouser dressing is proposed as a chic alternative, borrowing key elements from the classic Indian menswear wardrobe. The sari is casually restyled while it maintains its classicism.

An exercise in hand made luxury, this collection is created from hand woven brocades. Each fabric for each garment has been specially woven by Ekaya rooted in the rich textile heritage of Benaras.

We have re imagined the classic Banarasi brocade, celebrated for its richness and complexity, to create a collection that pays homage to the very nature and structure of weaving.

Our design inspiration has been taken from the simple intertwining of threads; the warp and the weft; to create a strong modern geometry of horizontals and verticals which are played out in the richness of silk and metallic.
