Shane and Falguni Peacock rock AVIBFW
Falguni and Shane peacock, the husband and wife designer duo, have already created stirs in the global market and have an impressive clientele which includes Madonna, Britney spears, Katy Perry, Fergie, Rihanna just to name a few.
They presented their collection Garden of Eden, which is an amalgamation of colour, textures and vivid embellishments on the Day third of the Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week (AVIBFW) 2013.
As the title of the collection suggests, they derived their inspiration from the most natural and beautiful creations of time by travelling to Monaco, Nice and the gardens of Lake Como in Europe. The idea was to capture the beauty of the flora and the natural environment of the European gardens.
The backdrop of the beautiful set was laden with lots of dry flowers which stood significant of their entire journey starting from inspiration to the final conceived collection. The designers took the audiences on a fairytale journey and finally to some fashion paradise with their extravagant bridal and evening gowns, full ghagras, anarkalis, farshi pyjamas, kalidaar saris teamed with bustier, halters and shrugs.
"We have worked on each piece for IBFW individually to replicate the beauty and movement of a nature in a contemporary form," the designers said commenting on their collection for Bridal Week.
The show started with a model adorning a metal crafted waist corset teamed with an evening gown which was very innovatively designed for the show. Fur shrugs worn over Chantilly lace evening gowns in the hues of beige and peach simply looked spectacular.
A lot of shimmery net sarees and floor sweeping layered net anarkalis with sheer backs were part of the subtle yet very trendy and elegant collection of Falguni and Shane Peacock. Basically, it was a play of floral motifs, vintage laces and delicate feathers amalgamated with net, chiffon and georgettes that were beautifully incorporated in the mesmerizing collection of the designer duo.
The applique work was also seen on the lehengas with 3D floral motifs. Even the big rubies and emeralds studded diamond neckpieces donned by the models were very tastefully chosen to complement the whole look. Another part of the collection included pristine white ensemble with silver gotha work at the borders of mutli-layered anarkali and intricate delicate embroidery work.
The audience just couldn't overlook the use of long jackets on multi-layered anarkalis in soft pastel colours like peach, green and pink. To go with the tradition of reds and pinks which are extensively used for bridal outfits, they also showcased royal red saree in velevet combined with delicate pink net.
The models strutted in Chantilly lace, floor sweeping evening gowns attached with net stoles in the hues of pink, red and hot pink along with a lot of shimmer effect.
As soon as subtle romantic music started playing in the background, Neha Dhupia made a grand entrance as the show stopper of the show.
She gracefully carried a Chantilly lace and velvet, double layered evening gown with a crafted metal sheet attached to the waist of the outfit. It was a floor sweeping evening gown which had a big motif on the sheer back of the elegant attire.
