“Both light and shadow are the dance of love.”


Tracing its inspiration to Rumi’s esoteric quotes about nature’s stunning flora and fauna, the artisanal Nur- e-Alaleh (light from a heavenly flower) bridal couture collection presented a romantic ode to Shehla Chatoor’s forte: exquisitely dovetailing intricate, old-world embroidery – resham, beaten mukesh, zardozi, vintage sequins, metalwork – as well as pearls and Swarovski crystals with sleek, contemporary silhouettes. Juxtaposing timeless elegance with contemporary romance and femininity, the collection was an ode to subtle hues emboldened with rich accents, intricately luxe embellishment and exotic motifs.
