Shamsha Hashwani showcased her bridal collection ‘Kolpona: A Gateway to Nostalgia’ in collaboration with at the seventh edition of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week. ‘Kolpona’ meaning ‘fantasy’ in Bengal – was an ode to Bengal’s rich culture, art, history and Colonial influences.

Kolpona’ comprised of 16 vivid-hued pieces redolent of Bengal’s Old World culture and incorporates luxe fabrics such as raw silk; jamavar, organza, and chiffon; while for the contemporary festive wear charmeuse silk and net were used.

The bridal and festive collection incorporated intricately textural embroidery techniques including zardozi; bullion knots; handcrafted organza petals highlighted with pearls and beadwork; 3D embroideries; bugle bead tassels and Swarovski crystals.

The color palette was inspired by classic precious stones: violet and plum from amethysts; mesmerizing blues inspired by opal and bridal reds from rubies. Ivory and écru was incorporated for the capsule of contemporary pieces.

The collection boasts a variety of classic silhouettes including deep halter-cut cholis dovetailed with lehengas, traditional farshi ghararas and stunning saris. Contemporary silhouettes included flowing kaftans, edgy jumpsuits and long sheath dresses end-noted with myriad flouncy dupattas.
