FDCI’S DIGITAL EDITION-DAY FIVE

Falguni Shane Peacock  

Titled ‘Love is,’ inspired by the monument of love – Taj Mahal crafted completely by hand by hand to showcase the distinct handwriting and talents of a cluster of about 250 craftsmen from the FSP-adopted villages of Malihati, Islampur, Midnapore, Kharagpur and Marhtala in West Bengal with the couture signatures of Falguni Shane Peacock.

Highlights

·         Intricate detailing juxtaposed against the backdrop of the Taj Mahal presents a mesmerising tableau of Indian craft traditions and couture expertise to the world.Details of the collection translate the visionary saga of love by borrowing from the beauty of Taj Mahal. From transcribing the innumerable motifs of the architectural gem on ensembles to varnishing them with refined adornments of Swarovski crystals, pearls, mirrors, sequins and beads.

·         The intricate crafting techniques replicated the structural marvel on the fabric via architectural motifs of domes and minarets, filigree of foliage, and motifs of the century’s fauna and birds.

·         The cuts are traditional yet au courant, think trailed Lehenga, fitted-and-flared silhouettes, and ball gown-style Lehengas that make for a befitting wedding day bridal trousseau.
