First Look: Falguni Shane Peacock serve an Indo-Parision affair for their new couture collection of lehengas and intricate veils

If there’s one reason that couture could owe its thriving success in India today as it does, it is due to the sheer extravagance and the ability to push boundaries, and all while maintaining a steady traffic of clientele– the regulars and the fresh takers. And while there may be an inherent need to be more innovative even with an exhaustive supply of ideas, Indian couture has always held handcrafted perfection and the experience of wearing beautiful clothes of paramount importance. It is what one can expect when looking at the confections that are crafted at the ateliers of Falguni Shane Peacock.

The couture offering they duo is presenting IRL at India Couture Week this time brings forward the mutually beneficial relationship between art and fashion. Many may debate whether one can be considered as the other, but where the two streams collide has a clear explanation in this collection titled ‘Love Forever.’ The designer duo has an inherent love for the artistic wonders of the world, which flows through their collection this season. Previously, the majestic white walls and minarets of the Taj Mahal had played muse, and this time, its the French tapestries from the Renaissance period that come into existence on lehengas and cropped blouses. “The line is innovatively French in terms of method but natively rooted in India in terms of approach,” says Shane.
