Misha Lakhani – PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2013
“I’m very excited to be a part of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week as I believe
Bridal wear sustains the livelihoods of our artisans and in doing so, preserves our heritage in fine craftsmanship.”
Misha Lakhani will be showcasing a bridal collection titled ‘Bohemian Heiress’ at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2013. The collection is inspired by a journey of the designer through Ottoman Turkey, its threads of many cultures, 17th century old Indian romanticism, jewel tones, and the bohemian heiress who challenges convention yet loves all things traditional. The bridal collection features intricate designs on fabrics such as French velvet, muslin, net, gold tissue, chiffon, georgette, brocade and karandi. Expect short coats set against long kalidars, saris draped on dresses, sheer shirts layered over lengha cholis, kalidars, sheer saris, long coats and angharkas in gold, topaz, amber and lapis to ivory, fawn, saffron and lime palettes. Bohemian Heiress has been meticulously crafted using techniques such as applique, vasli, zardosi, ari, marori, block-printing, gota and devore.
