Q : Gorgeous clothes, even better people, jewellery that speaks of royalty and a mastermind designer Shilpa Reddy. Put these together and what have you got?
A : An explosion of silks, regal vibes in grooms and bridal wear that inspires!
Held within the palace walls of Taj Faluknuma, Hyderabad – the city of pearls and nawabs, Shilpa Reddy showcased her new collection named “Tales of Palatial Heirloom” drawing inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of Hyderabad, which is her home. Her collection was an ode to the tasteful lifestyle of the Royals and Nawabs, she celebrated their way of living through each lehenga, saree and sherwani. With classic drapes, regal hues and dupattas draped like the Begums of old, she has brought to us a set of bridal and grooms wear that surely transcends to the 17th century, still with a chic and contemporary feel.
Using a color palette of delicate dusty pinks, placid blues, lavenders, nudes and peaches too – bringing a never seen before set of colors to bridal and grooms wear. Teal achkans and grey sherwanis, peach lehengas and off-white sarees with jackets – Tales of Palatial Heirloom is a perfect translation of age-old royal style filled with magnificence.
It’s a collection that takes us on a journey that takes us to an era of Indian history that was larger than life – scroll down right here to see the pictures from the night.
