Chikankari and Zardosi infuse regal essence into tailored styles of this collection.
February 6, 2024: As each bride and groom embark on the journey toward their happily ever after, the significance of their attire stands as the second most crucial element. Eeksha by Ashwin Agrawal recognizes this importance, a sentiment beautifully reflected in their collection titled "Regia."
Striking a delicate balance between romance and sophistication, the collection draws inspiration from European artistry of the Medieval period and the understated luxury emanating from classic Indian embroideries.
From timeless classics to contemporary marvels, Eeksha’s commitment to crafting pieces resonating with the contemporary soul and capturing the essence of love, individuality, and celebration is woven into every thread.
The design team artfully incorporates subtle embellishments, impeccable tailoring, and understated elegance. Each garment is a masterpiece, meticulously crafted by skilled artisans, reviving the beloved traditional embroidery of Chikankari and Zardosi.
With a harmonious palette of teal, blue, ivory, and red, the collection seamlessly merges heritage beauty with modern allure, creating an ensemble that transcends time.
Mr. Agrawal, CEO and Creative Director of the Kolkata-based brand, said, “I aimed to marry the timeless artistry of traditional Indian craftsmanship with a modern twist, leaving one with a pleasant surprise at the harmonious union. In the vast tapestry of contemporary weddings, brides’ grooms seek more than just attire; they yearn for a reflection of their individuality, a manifestation of their unique love stories. ‘Regia’ is an answer to those desires, a heartfelt creation tailored to meet the aspirations of modern brides & grooms.”
Impeccably crafted sherwani sets are adorned with intricate embroidery. Likewise, the embroidered lehenga sets exude timeless charm. The versatility extends further with lehengas complemented by corset tops and detachable wings, while slit gowns adorned with capes and fishtail gowns offer a modern twist to traditional attire.
This collection promises an opulent celebration of love, blending tradition with contemporary style in an enchanting medley.
