Falguni and Shane Peacock dazzle with metallic hues in couture debut
India Couture Week 2018 saw designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock take their Parisian princess inspiration to the next level with a shimmering collection of dresses and lehengas in every metallic hue possible.
Known for their attention to detail and unique designs, Falguni and Shane Peacock stayed true to their signature style of feathers and glittery ensemble, but took it to the next level with bold metallic hues at the Hindustan Times and Sunil Sethi Design Alliance’s India Couture Week 2018. Though the duo has showcased their collection at venues abroad, this was their debut couture show in India.
The runway saw some dazzling skirts, lehengas with long trains, a bodycon jumptsuit (very daring, we say) and gowns in shades of gold, silver, dust rose, cream and copper. The collection was dominated with shimmering ensembles complete with veils, dramatic feathers around the cuffs and minimalistic jewellery.
Showstopper actress Kareena Kapoor Khan glided down the runway in a shimmering gold lehenga (perfect for those KiraKira moments). It is safe to say that this wedding season we will see brides adorning a lot of rose gold, gold and silver ensembles.
The metallic collection can perfectly translate to pre-wedding and post-wedding party outfits with its shiny details. The designers used chrome applique technique to add a new dimension to the outfits.
In an earlier interview to Hindustan Times, Shane said, “We have drawn our inspiration from a tale in which a Parisian queen is invited to the resplendent Junagarh Palace in Rajasthan, which is known for its meticulous architecture and grandeur. A mela (local carnival) is orchestrated in the honour of the queen, who is left mesmerised by the majestic and royal nature of the occasion.”
We can’t wait to see how our modern brides interpret this collection and incorporate these metallic looks in their trousseau.
India Couture Week, presented by Hindustan Times and Sunil Sethi Design Alliance, will be on from July 25 to July 29, in Delhi.
