The third show of the evening was by Kiran Fine Jewellery titled ‘Sceptres of Beauty’. The collection took inspiration from every woman’s innate need to conceal, protect and provoke. For centuries, through ancient civilisations to modern times, women have used basic tools like the mask, hand-held fan and the parasol to do exactly that: conceal, protect and provoke. These three instincts have been reinvented with the revolution of the cosmetic beauty industry.
And so, these three ‘Sceptres of Beauty’ assimilated in this collection as a tribute to ‘the women of all times’. Kiran Fine Jewellery’s showstopper for the evening was Pakistan’s most revered classical dancer Naheed Siddiqui.
“A woman’s innate desires will always remain the same no matter how much she appears to have evolved on the outside,” said Kiran Aman of Kiran Fine Jewellery on her inspiration behind her debut solo jewellery show. Showcasing jewellery pieces such as necklaces, earrings, pendants, rings and teekas (head and forehead adornments), ‘Sceptres of Beauty’ was handmade with cutwork and carving using metals such as gold and silver and stones such as lapis, coral and malachite together with red and green sapphires.
The wardrobe for the jewellery show was designed by Yasmin Shaikh.
