Nickie Nina Collection at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2014
“We are pleased to be a part of PLBW since the beginning and it is very rewarding to see each year becoming bigger and better than the last.”
Designer label Nickie Nina will be showcasing their bridal wear collection titled “Rumi to Raj” at the PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2014. The collection draws inspiration from the queens and princesses of the Mughal era. Each ensemble has been designed based on a particular Mughal royal lady, encompassing all characteristics of her personality into a single outfit. The fabric, embellishment details and cuts used demonstrate the label’s interpretation of the Raj Myth. Using rich jamawars, lux French lace and plush organza with a combination of karchob, zarkozi along with a dash of Swarovski crystals, the collection projects the opulence and grandeur of the Mughal era with a colour palette comprising of beiges, nudes and offwhites uplifted with bright coloured accents with coral is the predominant theme.
