Designers Ashima and Leena Showcased their Bridal Collection titled ‘Jashna’ at the BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014 AL’s bridal collection combines floral delicacy, reminiscing the fantasy of ‘Arabian Nights’ – calling in a regal revival of elegant Arabesques and mosaic aesthetic. ‘Jashn’ is a celebration of their six intoxicating collections - Persian Flowers, gulistan, gold souq, pieces of silver and isfahan and tabriz. This majestic layout incorporated lehengas, floating ghararas with trails, a revival of the ‘odhni’ as the centerpiece of the ensemble, long kurtis with plunging necklines and sarees with embellished blouses. The aesthetic combination of hues and material such as beaten gold with vintage grey, antique silver, mirrored accents, soft dusky pinks with a sheer, peacock blue, turquoise and lapis with burnt orange symbolised the duo’s festive interpretations. Specially woven Persian motifs on rich silks, fine gold borders and flowing lame fabrics formed the mainstay of this collection. Ashima and Leena preferred to call their collection a masterful ode to a venerable tradition of craftsmanship by showcasing their newest offering this fall, called ‘ratn-patti’, in jewel tones of red, rust, royal blue and peacock, resplendently scattered in appliques and full odhnis .
