Designer Payal Singhal unveiled her ‘Pakizah’ collection at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 16 with actress Saiyami Kher, who said that she will opt for the particular design whenever she is getting married.
“I will wear it whenever I am planning to marry, “Saiyami, who graced the ramp in a rose pink silk off shoulder choli and lehenga edged with scalloped hemlines and beautiful zardoszi embroidery, told IANS.
Maria Goretti, Shamita Shetty, Padmini Kolhapuri, Pernia Qureshi, Tejaswini Kohlapure, and Mouni Roy were present at the show dressed in Singhal creations.
Singhal’s latest collection, ‘Pakizah’, explored the beauty of pure unadulterated design. The line goes back to the basics and featured Indian wear that is contemporary yet timeless and elegant. Clean and minimalistic cuts in fabrics like silk, raw silk and mul stay true to the designer’s vision, as do the pearl and mukaish embroidery in classic patterns.
The silhouettes seamlessly merged the traditional and the modern with off-shoulder cholis and lehengas, cold shoulder kurtas, scalloped hemlines and low crotch pants that are paired with Anarkali kurtas.
“Every season we collaborate with a celebrity who imbibes the essence of the collection. This line is an expression of minimalistic style, celebrating earthy sensuality.
“Saiyami Kher embodies beauty in simplicity through a rose pink silk off shoulder choli and lehnga edged with scalloped hemlines and Zardosi. Also Islamic art and architecture has always had a lasting impact on my work but I have forgone an ornate approach in favour of one that highlights the purity of good old design. The focus is on bringing out the timeless quality of simplicity,” said the designer.
