One of India's biggest bridal couture brands has dropped its eagerly awaited collection - Charbagh. The name itself, derives from a Persian-style garden split into four gardens of paradise.
Fittingly, Sabyasachi Mukherjee's Winter/Bridal 2019 line is split into four categories - Chowk, Devi, Nargis and Isfahan, each one designed to transcend brides into a state of richness and grandeur.
Here is a little more about the opulent collection which has been described as four gardens of blooms nourished by one source:
The Chowk Collection
For the Chowk collection, the designer was inspired by the way women in rural India dress, and the authenticity in how they express themselves through their clothing. Paying homage to the folk cultures of India, it features the integrity and authenticity of rural India with deep colours and textiles.
The Devi Collection
The Devi collection is for the traditional bride who wants to wear the statement red lehenga. The name, Devi, is associated with power, and good energy - and brides who have fallen for the designer's work have even renamed the shade as 'Sabyasachi red!'
The Nargis Collection
For this collection, Sabyasachi imagined a wild overgrown garden with lush flowers blooming. Fragranced by memories of rose, sandal and amber - he chose hues of soft pastel shades and embellished floral motifs, which are prominent in the collection.
The Isfahan Collection
This collection is for the bride looking for an element of regal romance on her wedding day. Isfahan takes inspiration from Mughal-inspired motifs and Persian flora and fauna. You'll discover velvets, organzas, muslins and mulmul all gloriously embellished with decadent zardozi in gold and silver, with tiny specks of mina in silk floss.
The colours are subdued too, with Indian purple replaced by a faded jamun, fuchsia gives way to pomegranate and bright feroza comes shrouded in layers of patin.
A brand that covers all sensibilities and cultures equally, Sabyasachi's designs have instilled confidence and body positivity in all brides. After all, the designer has famously said absolutely anyone can be a Sabyasachi bride.
For the bride that wants to feel great and turn heads this season, there's something for everyone with Charbagh.
