Designer Leena Singh of Label Ashima – Leena

Dripping in diamonds and pearls, an artful visionary, Mehr-un-Nissa, the bridal collection by designer proved to be a beacon of femininity and modernity. Like an intricate tapestry wound together by golden silks, this whimsical soul was forged not only by classic values and a penchant for the arts, but also by social responsibility and an unbridled will.

Antique textile crafting weaves a narrative of juxtaposition, a tale that captures the refreshing youth of Mehr-un-Nissa’s spirit without forsaking richness and regality; richly adorned brocades are used in subtle shades – pastels and shimmering hues of gold are abound, contrasted with royal odhnis of unfettered colour akin to fuchsia, peacock green, and midnight blue. Adding dimension to what is reminiscent of Mughal rule, paisleys and florals are punctuated with modern streaks of pattern and vivid colour – antique textile crafting entwining stand-alone aesthetics to produce an air of innovative intricacy.

Inspired by the grandeur of The Czarist Regime of Russia , this collection is deeply entrenched in the unmitigated philosophy of extreme luxury . This opulence has been interpreted and translated by me with my innate sense of understated glamour and elegance . This collection is my personal interpretation and understanding of this opulence and beauty . For me this is a contemporary collection of a bygone period of excess toned down only by my understated philosophy of style and timeless chic .

This story sees an amalgamation of two distinct cultures and thought processes , that of Russian Grandeur and the almost austere craftsmanship of my absolute true love , Kashmir . Here, rich golds meet fine silk threads. Zardozi meets fine Kashmiri Kaani with unique Swarovski crystals in gold & emerald detailing, crewel work and petit point and chain stitch . Velvet meets hand woven silks . Rich jewels meet autumn leaves , poppies and irises in guilded frames of lustrous luxury to create one beautiful form .
