Each design of the 26-piece bridal collection was additionally redolent of the stirring melodies from K. Asif’s magnus opus Mughal-E-Azam, starring Madhubala and Dilip Kumar, including Mohabbat Ki Jhooti Kahani et al and traverses a color palette ranging from ivory and écru; to peach, ochre and rust; and from a rich cornucopia of intense hues, including lime, Rani pink, magenta, violet, emerald to meditative midnight blue. For added drama and versatility, a series of custom-made digital prints canvassed with traditional flora and fauna motifs including the Mughal lotus flower; the perennially romantic rose as well as ornamental miniatures and exotic birds are transposed onto a bevy of statement lehengas.
Dovetailed with and to complement the exquisite bridal collection is a range of custom-made jewellery by Hamna Amir from Lahore who has created stunning artisanal pieces with meenakaari, kundan, aari work and delicate fretwork for a traditional-meets -contemporary vibe.
