Aimed at bridal wear for spring/summer, Shyamal and Bhumika presented their collection called "A Mystical Garden" which was a floral fantasy at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.

The Grand Hyatt Ballroom was turned into a fragrant garden with a backdrop of trellised flower bouquets and rows of blossoms that lined either side of the ramp.

Inspired by the romantic Edwardian era, there was a marked Gothic influence in the sleeves which were fitted.

The designers chose a variety of lavish fabrics to maintain the bridal look. Raw silks were at the top of the list with net, satin, silk Dupion and sensuous georgette, which completed the look.

Colours that blossomed on the runway, created a riot of floral hues as peach, beige, rose, moonlight, dusty aqua, chocolate brown, Beaujolais wine and other tones created magic on the ramp.

A variety of silhouettes were offered to the resort bride by the designing duo. Classic flared tented voluminous skirts swirled with empire lines, while gentle drapes gave the bias flared maxis and gowns, an arresting appeal. For more sultry touches, sexy embellished net bodices and corsets added to the glamour of the collections.

Looking stunning on the ramp were the silk flared gowns, cowled ankle length satin dress, layered net maxi, the luxurious short top over pita embroidered churidar with shimmering sequins/pearls and the awesome corset over panelled net skirt.

The designers brought in just three saris in rose pink, champagne and peach with zardosi and Zari jaal work with glittering borders.

The eight men's wear outfits were regal with jackets, being in the forefront with Zari embellishments/floral dori work and worn with pleated shirts, trousers or polo pants.

Accessories that caught the eye were the intricately crafted clutch bags, golden flowers to decorate the hair and the detachable slip-on embroidered sleeves that gave a dressy look to the creations.

Embroidery has always played an important role for Shyamal and Bhumika. This season too, the pair had tonal thread work with dashes of metallic thread, using pita and zardosi. Dainty 3D rosettes with subtle shimmer and flecked with pearls; created a stunning impact on the scintillating garments.
