Huma Qureshi, the sensual and acclaimed Bollywood actress, played a gorgeous muse to designer duo par excellence Rimple & Harpreet Narula, dressed in their ‘Awadh Darbar’ collection.
Designed by Rimple-Harpreet for the summer of 2014, the collection relives the grandeur of chikankari in stunning anarkalis, opulent sheraras, resplendent lehengas and Peshawari robes.
Huma looks every bit of a Nawabzadi in the signature collection of Rimple & Harpreet, recreating the aura of the decadent Awadhi era.
The dazzling designs are interspersed with fine gotta patti, hand-crafted zardozi using pure zari and and resham embroidery, accentuating Huma’s classic beauty.
The intricate tone-on-tone chikankari in their creations spells the splendor of age-old art of chikankari.
About Rimple and Harpreet Narula Couture
A duo in the true sense, Rimple and Harpreet Narula founded their eponymous label in the year 2000, the same year that they tied the knot. They say marriage is the beginning of a lifelong partnership between two people, but in this case it was a coming together of their aesthetics, their passion for Indian couture — a beautiful ensemble of their creative sensibilities and entrepreneurial acumen that are perfectly complimenting. It’s not a coincidence that their label is a striking representation of the great Indian Wedding saga.
Harpreet with his flair for the art of occult, refined luxury and a passion to revive the bygone era combined with Rimple’s mastership in silhouettes and her fearless flamboyance amalgamates into an opulent, imperial fashion label which is the brand Rimple & Harpreet Narula.
In addition to the two stores in Delhi and one each in Ludhiana and Chennai, the label has an exclusive collection at all Kimaya and Aza stores across the country, Simaya in Kolkata, Studio 8 and Aara Fashions in Dubai, Phulkari London as well as Sanskrit in Hong Kong.
