The House of Kamiar Rokni

Titled ‘Moonrise’- Kamiar Rokni never disappoints; in fact the designer raises the bar with each collection launch! The range drew its inspiration from moon which is universally a feminine symbol representing the system of time and pays homage to this symbolism. The collection comprised of pieces that respect tradition but are made for the woman of today. They are heirlooms; a legacy that is passed on from one generation to the next. Jump suits, dhoti shalwars and Victorian era sleeves- the designer created conversation pieces that definitely had heads turning throughout the night. Mixed with his signature bridals the designer made looks that don’t require a season to wear- whether it’s a winter, summer or fall wedding a Kamiar Rokni bridal can be worn all year round.
