The summer of 16 commences with exclusive previews of Designers labels – bringing forth their objects d’art, coveted lines. At the D7, of the elegante Defense Colony, celebrated names from the fashion fraternity, designers Mandira Wirk, Poonam Bhagat and jewellery designer Rahul Popli showcased their latest collections. The designer store trickles understated opulence and impeccable style – it should top the list of must-shop-at for any fashionista.
Coming to Collections:
‘Romance of the Mughals’
‘Yaktahi Jamas ‘ grinned at me ‘sheer-fully ‘ while ‘Choghas ‘ made silken advances as they twirled and swirled across my extremely imaginative mind. How could one not feel seduced at such magnificence? This collection is an ode to the Mughals and draws inspiration from the luxurious costumes designed by them during their stay in the Indian Sub Continent, particularly from the late 17th to early 19th centuries.
Amethyst by Rahul Popli
For Summer 2016, Amethyst By Rahul Popli has come up with two new collections. One is the prêt collection and the other is a ‘Tribal Jadau Mélange’. Both the collections establish a deep connection between a woman’s character and her style.
The delicateness, elegance and asymmetry of the 18th century artistic movement of Rococo find a contemporary manifestation in Mandira Wirk’s Autumn Winter collection. Wirk’s Spring Summer collection includes Aarikam, Shibori, Miss India collection and Gota collection.
The Aarikam collection is inspired from the ancient craft of ‘Chain Stitch’, which was originally evacuated from royal tombs. The Shibori collection beautifully explores patterns with embroidery and clamps, making it ideal for the summer! The Miss India collection, which uncovers ‘desert’ beauty, is inspired from curvaceous sand dunes and vivid sunsets, giving the whole collection a sensual diva look. ‘Gota’ work, which was prevalent during the Mughal period, and was used to adorn almost everything, is now being revived in Wirk’s collection with glorious and surreal designs.
Speaking on the occasion, designer Mandira Wirk said, “I’m really looking forward to the amalgamation of stunning jewellery and beautifully crafted garments by my dear friends Rahul and Poonam. And of course, waiting to hear positive feedback on the Mandira Wirk summer diffusion line and our Autumn-Winter collection”
“I am proud to be part of this platform with two beautiful ladies, who are both super talented and virtuoso in their field. Amethyst jewellery blends well with Poonam’s simplistically beautiful designs and compliment Mandira’s ultra chic outfits,”said jewellery designer Rahul Popli.
“I am thrilled to be part of this platform where three diverse designers meet to create a synergy that is harmonious and balanced”,said designer Poonam Bhagat.
