When a Sabyasachi bride takes to the stage, it would be only fair to dive into the ethereal charm. While his collection “Ferozabad” was presented to us at the stage of India Couture Week 2014, we were taken back to a time when India meant royalty and authentic craftsmanship. With intricate detailing being one of Sabyasachi’s signature, it meant witnessing an assortment of outfits so rich and luxurious, the ideal “Ferozabad” bride should have a heart of a queen.

Tulle and Khadi predominated the medley followed by poplin and velvet. Zardosi work, parsi, handcut bugle beads, crystals and heritage hand embroidery enhanced the opulence of the precious ensembles. Bandhgalas came embellished with a surprising 18 carat gold buttons. “Winter garden” florals brought a sense of unadulterated purity in the ensembles, similar to that in a young bride’s hopeful eyes.

Banarasi sarees, tulle saris worn with zardosi work blouses, peplum kurtis over sharara pants, velvet lehenga with vintage zardose embroidery were silhouettes that increased the visual splendor by manifolds.
