Ashima Leena’s – Persian Flowers
Bridal couture designer duo Ashima-Leena presented a beautiful collection which was inspired by a combination of mysticism, Sufism and the fantasy of the Arabian Nights.
The collections entitled ‘Persian Flowers’, ‘Gulistan’, ‘Gold Souq’, ‘Pieces of Silver’, ‘Isfahan’ and ‘Tabriz’ were presented via the ramp which was covered with sand against a desert backdrop.
Showcased were flowing farshi pyjamas, lehengas, long kurtis, elegantly trailing ghararas, and saris paired with exquisitely embellished blouses, and the revival of the odhni. The trend appeared to be plunging back cholis that reached the hip bone.
Details included intricate beadwork, sequins and metallic threadwork on fine silk, tulle and organza with specially woven Persian motifs.
Hues of gold with vintage grey, antique silver, mirrored accents, soft dusky pinks with a sheer, peacock blue, turquoise and lapis with burnt orange were representative of the duo’s festive interpretations.
Designer’s hand embroidered collection includes colors from blue to maroon, gold, beige and white. Classical gowns, lehengas & shirts with embroidery work give a classy but lavish look.
