Shyamal and Bhumika’s shows are always a grand offering of dazzling bridal wear. They ensured that their collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 was another memorable line.
This creative husband and wife designer duo, made it their mission to project India to the world. Their haveli-like stores in Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad have been favoured fashion destinations for garments that feature heritage crafts and textiles.
They presented Wonderland – a luxury Prét bridal collection.
Creating picture perfect visuals on the ramp for bridal wear that can only be termed as dream-like at a fairy tale wedding ceremony, Shyamal and Bhumika expertly crafted their ensembles with abundant emotions.
The lush hand woven silks, satin and tulle in serene pastels like pink, grey, violet and blue, were given the ultimate embellishments. Showers of beads, crystals and pearls were lovingly crafted on the creations and flowed down from the bodice to gradually end at the hemline or covered the complete garment.
Giving the luxury Prét bridal wear a global impact, the pair added sumptuous satin and appliquéd organza that ended in sensuous ruffled hemlines. The bridal trousseau also revealed embellishments that heightened the beauty of the attire. The Shyamal and Bhumika signature cutwork was prominent on the elegant saris, flared skirts and fashionable day dresses.
The lehengas, cholis, dupattas and kurtas were given a gentle western touch, while the line of gowns with encrusted bodices, ruffled, flared skirts and flowing organza dream of a creation had hits of gold and contrasting floral work.
Bringing the show to a glorious end was the very effervescent and graceful Bollywood queen Kangana Ranaut, who gilded in a dazzling ivory encrusted gown with a tulle veil.
