Misha Lakhani showcased her bridal collection Ab-e-Rawan, meaning running water at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week in the grouped show category.
The poetic name given to the various flowy muslins from 16th century Mughal India, ‘Ab-e-Rawan’ celebrates the bohemian nomad in a mix of Persian and Central Asian textiles, hand-woven fabrics that coexist with the finest quality needle-craft to create looks that are steeped in old-world charm, yet versatile and effortless.
The fabrics range from hand-woven muslins, silks, gauzy nets, velvet, organza and tissues. The colour palette includes ivory, blush pink, daffodil yellow, peach, carmine, duck egg blue, midnight blue and black with pea green accents. An eclectic mix of old crafts and modern ideas, the collection featured pre-draped dupattas, hand-crafted sandals, voluminous crushed gagras layered looks using versatile separates, off shoulder blouses, jodhpurs and angarkhas.
“I love looking to centuries past to inspire collections, but always with my current context in mind; the clothing has to be as effortless as it is beautiful.” said Misha Lakhani
