Lakmé Fashion Week {Winter/Festive 2011} - Parvesh & Jai

Indian bridal wear returned to the glorious bygone era of zardozi splendour with the stunning collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011 by Parvesh Jai. The exquisitely hand crafted and stitched garments dazzled with embroidery, that has been a part of India’s rich heritage.

Dabka, Zari, resham, semi-precious stones, pearls and zircons came together, to weave a magical look on the ramp on lustrous fabrics. Calling their collection “Salute to Feminity” the designer duo unleashed a line of super dazzling creations with amazing 3D embroidery that almost leapt out from the garments.

Starting the show TV Anchor Pooja Misra in a gorgeous purple net sari, The collection included 3D floral appliqués which adorned churidars in colours of the rainbow, while the pin tucked will-power chiffon kurtas swirled with multi panels. Ornate cutwork highlighted the halter necklines of the cholis, brocades and nets were skillfully paneled for lehengas and teamed with tiny velvet bikinis tops.

Crystal bodices shimmered under the ramp lights, as the kurtas floated down the catwalk. Lehengas resembled Spanish flamenco dancer’s skirts as ruffles cascaded down the fabrics. The highlights of the collection were the cutouts of swans that were perched majestically on the shoulders of the long sleeved cholis encrusted with crystals, zircons and Zari.

The embroidery motifs were opulent as giant paisleys rose from the hemlines of the skirts. Cutwork played an important role in the collection for the back, necklines and sleeves of the cholis. The silhouettes moved from fluid and flowing for the bridal skirts and Kalidar kurtas, but at other times were close to the body.

Parvesh Jai are noted for their extreme creations with embellishments that are mind-blowing in design and form and this season their “Salute to Feminity” will undoubtedly get the undivided attention of one and all.
