“The Mythical Moors” is a new winter collection launched by designer Prarena Grover. The line is inspired by the wild, whimsical and dramatic legends of the old forest. The collection is made with the intricacy of Indian embroidery techniques that incorporate trees and various elements found in the forest. The Mythical Moors is inspired by wild flowers and in choosing the colour palate of the collection a range of bright colours have been used throughout the collection. The collection has a sense of darkness to it to show the diverse sides of a forest.
Designer Dharna Hassija unveiled her winter collection that brought the new trends to the forefront. The highlights of the line include sharp silhouettes on velvet having cutting designs on high-end fabric for jewel-tone formalwear, feminine dresses with ribbons and bows on button-downs, shirts, dresses, tops, shoes and bags. Victorian collars that dominate both the luxury and high street arenas is also a part of Hassija’s winter collection. Embellished cocktail wear and structured daywear dresses are another take away from the collection.
