Ashima Leena's Raag Rattan Collection {Aamby Valley India Bridal Week 2012}

2013 Jun 16 - by Preeti
There is something about Ashima and Leena's bridal collections that entrance you. The clothes are not decidedly ornate with Swarovski crystals and gems, nor totally bland. They are the amalgamation of Bhairavi Jaikishan, Shantanu & Nikhil and themselves all wrapped in one.

This year's bridal collection was no different. Gold lame and delicate embroidery were woven into saris, lenghas, and anarkalis in delicate ways.

Anmol Jewellers designed spectacular kundan and jadau pieces. Some necklaces were deconstructed to resemble banjuband (armbands). Earrings were paired with outfits sans necklaces, allowing for high collared embroidery.

To top it off, popular Sufi singer, Zila Khan, sang throughout the show. With such lovely singing, I couldn't help but sway from side to side with happiness. It was a real treat!
