On view are ethereal hand-embroidered creations aimed at the bride and her close circle of friends. Created in happy hues of dust pink, mint, fuchsia and scarlet and silhouettes that are elegant and uncluttered, the collection stylishly sets the mood for every bridal festivity.

The fashion film shot in a beautiful villa with pretty pink walls with clean and sleek lines goes very well with the designer brand’s aesthetic.

Catching your eye are the intricately embroidered gloves inspired by the Indian mehendi ceremony and the chain mail blouses with striking floral appliqués. Organza and lush fabrics form the basis of the wedding wear showcase, providing a modern take on Indian sensibilities and also instilling a sense of playful femininity.

Yes, this beautiful bridal line is a perfect amalgamation of soothing pastels and the auspicious bridal red. Strappy bustiers and tiny bralettes reflect the rich embroidery details, while long-sleeved boleros with mirror work add glam and grandeur.

All in all, it is a beautiful bridal line that is contemporary in its vision and brought to life by brides and their tribes.
