It’s a perennial favourite and is always high up on the list of every fashionista’s favourites….we’re talking embroidery in all its glorious incarnations! The international style radar has shown a constant returning to embroidered fabrics when the need is for elegance, femininity and romanticism. One beautiful case in point is Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, resplendent with acres of the finest hand embroidery!
Indian textiles have traditionally been rich in embroideries and weaves, and today’s designers use this rich heritage in wonderful new ways in both ethnic as well as contemporary couture. Some of the threadwork styles like zardosi and aaari work are unique to our culture, having filtered down the centuries from Persian and Mughal origins.
Add a unique facet to your wardrobe for any season with an array of embroidered outfits and accessories. For the summer season, consider a versatile white-on-white stole which triples up as a scarf, dupatta or sash…a delicate chiffon confection of a saree with sequin and thread work, or a sparkling, starry evening dress to wow any room you enter…
Enjoy the diversity and nuances that embroidery brings to your life!
