Deepak Perwani is one of those unique aspiring designers who caters to men and women. He became wildly popular over the years for the only reason that there wasn’t a market he hadn’t tapped. Be it joining the lawn fever, womenswear or men’s Perwani has done it all and still stands to be one of the leading pioneers of the fashion industry.
His latest collection ‘Shalimar’ is for the urban contemporary woman; chic and modern but quaintly charismatic and the urban man; who is not afraid to explore. It boasts of opulent silhouettes, encrusted with delicate detailing, a perfect fit for the wedding season. Green silk anarkalis with a tangerine lehenga or maysuri kalidars with two tone ghararas, hand blocked or screen printed for the ladies and elegant white suiting sherwani embroidered with motifs paired with a screen-printed turban for the men. Timeless, classic and regal silhouettes some paired with crepe shawls, potli bags, mimicking the Mughal era against the background of the majestic Shalimar gardens.
Perwani paints quite the picture, an artist no less. This collection reeks of royal grandeur. More than a classic. This is a Deepak Perwani classic and one for the ages.
