Inspired by the essence of an Indian summer wedding with all its rich culture and aromas of jasmine and turmeric and the magical and mystical chaos of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's dream' the Payal Singhal Resort Bridal 2012 collection is a mÃ©lange of ethereal resort and Indian bridal clothing.
Perfect for the summer bride and her destination wedding the collection showcases dresses, gowns, lehngas, sarees and shalwar kurtas in colours of blush, mint and sand with richer Indian colours like indigo, purple, emerald and turmeric. Textured in with georgettes, silks, banarsis, brocades, tulle and taffeta and embellished with pita kora work and filigree with gota, moti and crystals.
Payal’s summer resort collection ‘Mid summer nights dream’ as the answer to a summer brides’ needs. Indian salwar kameez along with lehengas in subtle shades is how one would describe the collection. Each piece was neatly embellished to give it a rich bridal look.
Payal established her label in India in 2000 and thanks to a global design sensibility the label stocks in stores, online and travels with its unique trunk shows world over. The 'Payal Singhal' signature look is clothing that is relevant in a modern context of fashion and translates from Indian to Western effortlessly.
British Vogue Editor Dolly Jones summed up her collection saying "Gorgeous dresses for dressing up in downtown New York with just enough of the genuine Indian magic that designers all over the world try to recreate."
