Lakme India Fashion Week Winter 2011 - Shyamal and Bhumika

Shyamal and Bhumika always produce bridal collections that are a delight to see. In fact, I think it would be one of the most fun runway shows to see live. Always sure to make use of rich fabrics like velvet and colors like burgundy, their designs are unmistakeable. The husband and wife team added an extra element of surprise to this show by having the mother-daughter pair of Hema Malini and Esha Deol walk the ramp in their designs!





















"The creations that glided down the catwalk were visions of utter beauty and style. Men’s jackets, sherwanis jodhpurs with assorted glittering embellishments were teamed with skin tight pants or lamé dhotis.

 

Women’s wear was a profusion of the most exquisite net lehengas with gold lamé petticoats, long line tulle kurta with ornate yoke, saris with glittering broad borders and long shirt teamed with gold bikini style tops under floor length net covers.

Kurtis came in with flared shararas, while Anarkalis gracefully glided on the floor, slim sherwanis looked great with diaphanous skirts and cholis were sensuous with panelled lehengas. Interesting touches were seen, when yokes had length, while plackets were intricately detailed.

The fabric story was rich and opulent as velvet, net, brocade, matka silk, tissue and shot silk georgettes created the perfect base for the garments. The colour palette stretched from wine, cream, blue, honey gold, aurora and beet red to burnt orange, gold, copper, and peacock green, jet black, brown, ink blue and lilac.

 

 

 

Detailing was the highlight of the creations with zardozi motifs and jaals, wire Marodi embroidery, washed gold, copper, peeta and gotta work and hints of precious Jadau stone craft added to the drama. Borders were cleverly used on sleeves, hems, while sherwanis were ornate with zardozi work and gathered churi sleeves were inspired by the Avadh era."
