Falguni Shane Peacock presents 'Love is' with Shraddha Kapoor at India Couture Week
Inspired by the myriad feelings and permutations of love, Falguni Shane Peacock presented a vibrant, eclectic collection for India Couture Week’s second digital edition. The collection had a varied colour palette with subtle cool tones like ice blue and rich statement hues like bright cherry red. Bollywood star Shraddha Kapoor appeared in a dramatic, form fitting lehenga covered in decorative embroidery.
Brimming with traditional femininity and classic craft techniques, the collection reinterpreted bridal wear with Falguni Shane Peacock’s signature theatrical spin. Notable looks included a magenta lehenga featuring an oversized bow made entirely of feathers and a pure white lehenga featuring a dramatic veil with an intricate headpiece.
Made entirely my hand, looks from ‘Love Is’ were crafted by a team of around 250 craftspeople from villages with which the brand works closely including Malihati, Islampur, Midnapore, Kharagpur, and Marhtala in West Bengal, according to the Fashion Design Council of India. By showcasing the intricate work of the artisans against the backdrop of the Taj Mahal, the brand shone the spotlight on the hard work and talent of India’s craftspeople.
India Couture Week ran from August 23 to 29 online on the website and social media accounts of organiser the Fashion Design Council of India. The digital event brought together 19 couture brands from across India.
