You got a sneak peek into the Payal Singhal Summer Resort Bride 2016 collection at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 curtain-raiser at St. Regis. Inspired by the enigmatic elegance of iconic Indian royal women, from heirloom jewels to traditional saris passed down the family tree, vintage is as important to regalia as is Parisian couture.
For the fast-fashion world of today, Payal Singhal suggests a selection of versatile separates, keeping in mind the inherent style of the modern-day maharani. The fabrics are luxurious brocade, Chanderi cotton, silk, chiffon and mul mul in vibrant prints comprising hand-painted techniques and neoclassical chintz. Embroidery includes delicate zardosi, mukaish and salma sitara. And the colour palette comprises pomegranate, slate grey, teal, rose quartz, iced azure, eggplant and stone.
Shibani Dandekar was the muse for Payal Singhal.
