Take a look at some close up sneak peeks and insights about the showcase!

Q-1 Tell us a bit about the collection you’ll be showcasing at PLBW’15 and about the inspiration behind it?

Shehzadi Rang Aur Samarkand Ki Rani consists of two capsules collections setting the Fall/Winter 2015-16 mood of Karma Red Atelier as exquisite, feminine and dramatic. Shehzadi Rang is a bold, bright, beautiful, firecracker sexy, tongue in cheek flirty, color mad collection whereas Samarkand Ki Rani is romantic, pure glamour and quintessential in essence. This season for us is about intense luminous color, traditional handicraft, modern application, gota, gold embellishments inspired by Karma’s signature rose. detailed finishings and statement silhouettes on heritage inspired vintage-esque pieces . The emphasis is on sheer and tailored with a modern play on cool separate linings and camisoles, closures and tassels. Handcrafted organza, tissue and net in pure cranberry, violets, ink, chartreuse, tangerine, chalk white and blood rouge set the tone for a strong, ethnic, sensual, classic Karma aesthetic this winter.

Q-8- Best and worst part about PLBW?

Excited about opening Bridal Week for the first time, three days of witnessing the best couture collections in the country on the ramp and hanging out with my best friends in the industry, worst part being not being able to see my kids as much in those three days due to my crazy schedule due to the Karma show and my PFDC front stage director duties..!!!
