Shyamal and Bhumika always offer much dazzling bridal wear and they ensured that their collection at Lakmé Fashion Week 2018 was another memorable one. This very creative couple team have made it their mission to project India to the world. Their haveli-like stores in Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad have been favored fashion destinations for garments that feature heritage crafts and textiles.
The designers presented a luxury Prét bridal collection named “Wonderland” was a glorious offering for the most important day of the bride’s life.
They created picture-perfect visuals on the ramp for bridal wear that can only be termed as dream-like at a fairytale wedding ceremony. Thus Shyamal and Bhumika expertly crafted their ensembles with abundant emotions.
Gorgeous Kangana Ranaut was the showstopper for Shyamal and Bhumika’s Wonderland, who gilded in a dazzling ivory encrusted gown with a tulle veil.
The hand weaved silks, satin and tulle in serene pastels like pink, grey, violet and blue, were given a rich look for the garments. Showers of beads, crystals and pearls were lovingly crafted on the creations and flowed down from the bodice to gradually end at the hemline or covered the complete garment.
Giving the luxury Prét bridal wear a global impact, the pair added sumptuous satin and appliquéd organza that ended in sensuous ruffled hemlines. The bridal trousseau also revealed embellishments that heightened the beauty of the attire. The Shyamal and Bhumika signature cutwork was prominent on the elegant saris, flared skirts and fashionable day dresses.
The lehengas, cholis, dupattas and kurtas were given a gentle western touch, while the line of gowns with encrusted bodices, ruffled, flared skirts and flowing organza dream of a creation had hits of gold and contrasting floral work.
Making a fashion statement was the silver-grey satin silk cape jumpsuit with delicate floral edge embroidered in Resham. The saris in satin and tulle, some with ruffle organza borders were visions of utter beauty.
The six men’s wear entries that were eye-catching comprised grey tulle shirt, with embroidery, an appliquéd linen jacket with sequins, draped collar linen jacket, tulle shirt with raw silk trousers, and matka silk jacket with an antique gold pitta border.
When a bride and her groom want to choose the ultimate trousseau for the day when they take the Saat Pheras; then getting lost in “Wonderland” by Shyamal and Bhumika will be a fabulous sartorial journey.
Nude makeup was the key focus of this look, created by Lakmé Makeup expert Daniel Bauer. Dewy, natural skin complemented with soft browns on the eyes from the Lakmé Absolute Nude Beach Eye shadow Palette, and lips from the Nude lipstick collection completed the look.
