Designer duo, Shyamal and Bhumika made their first appearance at the FDCI's day 3 of India Couture Week. Their new collection titled 'The Princess Soiree' marked their debut on the esteemed platform.

Their collection showcased an eclectic mix of crafts, colours and silhouettes. The designs perfectly stated the Indian modern bride but with a hint of European inspiration.

Actress Athiya Shetty turned a stunning muse for the designer duo. Athiya shimmered in a dripping gold embroidery jacket paired with a black lehenga with floral gold thread work all over it. She looked every bit beautiful as an interpretation of the young modern bride.

The embroideries draw influences from the architectures and picturesque panorama of the lush highlands. The cascading ruffles, twirling tulle skirts and magnanimous gowns with winding floral thread work transcended into a fantasy world.

On asking about the inspiration for the collection, designers said that " The collection is inspired from a wealthy merchant girl living in the 18th century. Therefore, it has an Indian and European influence to it. She has a lavish life, she throws lavish parties and everything is inspired from her outlook in life".

"Shyamal and Bhumika bride is someone is is very bold in her outlook. She's a very well exposed girl who sees the world in a different light. She wants a piece of heritage but she's not afraid to wear it her own way. That's what you saw on Athiya, a lovely gold jacket with a statement black Lehenga. She does not shy away and she wants to break the barriers", Bhumika told News18.

Their new line ranged from champagne golds, ruby wine, verdant green all under dark staple black. the collection consisted of floor sweeping gowns, sheer tulle capes, ruffled blouses, supple frills, belted waists, kalidar jackets and lehengas. The designers lit up the emsembles with extensive use of sequins, crystals and stone encrusting.

Amalgamation of varied European styles into Indian contemporary bridal wear was a treat to the eyes.
