In­spired by the gor­geous is­land of Monaco on the French Riviera where the rich and fa­mous rub shoul­ders, Amit Ag­gar­wal’s bri­dal cou­ture col­lec­tion called ‘Monaco from the Heart of Kashi’ was a lush story of glam­our and style. The in­spi­ra­tions were from the art, cul­ture and ar­chi­tec­ture of palaces and opera house of Monaco, the mo­tifs, carv­ings and drap­ery was clev­erly matched with the bro­cades of Ba­naras.

Sus­tain­able cou­ture was the core of the gar­ments with the tra­di­tional Ba­naras bro­cades and sa­rees from around the coun­try. Ex­pert tech­niques of in­dus­trial pleat­ing; lat­tic­ing and in­sert­ing re­cy­cled poly­mer strips were the highlights of the en­sem­bles; while zar­dosi em­broi­dery in dual metal and yarns, hand pleated tape em­bel­lish­ments, thread work was blended with un­con­ven­tional in­dus­trial yarns. The colour card had am­ber, sap­phire, ruby, jade, black di­a­mond, gold and sil­ver.

Pe­plum blouse with flared sleeves was worn with ge­o­met­ri­cally cut deep green, vel­vet, skirt. The draped sa­ree gowns, gold moulded blouses and elec­tric blue 3D flo­ral gold long skirt and jacket with bro­cade skirt were sen­sa­tional. Sil­ver moulded corsets and draped sa­rees, pan­elled gowns, vel­vet coats over midi skirts, off-shoul­der en­sem­bles, scin­til­lat­ing red corsets with an eye-catch­ing drape and a gold gown with geo­met­ric strips com­pleted the bri­dal wear story.
