The festive season is upon us and so is the time for wedding celebrations. Basically, the best, most colourful time of the year awaits and it’s only fair that we look the part. The festive dress-up memo for 2022 is fairly fun—vibrant but keep it classic! And designer Mayyur Girotra has aced the aesthetic with his Zamani collection.
Recently, Mayyur headlined the first-ever South Asian New York Fashion Week (SANYFW) and left us in awe with his creations. With Zamani, he has given us a collection that is modern yet laced with old-world charm. Think of your dadi’s wardrobe and how you’d wear all those heirloom pieces in 2022. That’s Mayyur’s latest collection for you! Here are seven pieces from Zamani that will be defining our fashion mood board for the upcoming months:
Our favourite look from Zamani is this show-stopping lehenga. We love how Mayyur has played on a white base and embellished it with vibrant colours. The appliqué elephants stand out as the statement detail and we are in awe of how the designer has added a saffron blouse and dupatta to contrast with the detail. This is sartorial art at its finest!
Can’t decide if you want to go all out or keep it understated this festive season? Do both with this Mayyur Girotra lehenga. The designer has worked his magic by styling a multi-coloured lehenga with a beige blouse and dupatta. We love the panelled skirt and how each of the kalis features a different hue and handwork. They are in sharp contrast and yet the jewel palette makes everything fall together.
If you are bored of lehengas, we recommend you invest in a vibrant saree like this Kutchi wonder by Mayyur. Hand embellished to perfection, this drape has the elegance of a saree and the grandeur of a lehenga coupled in one.
The attention to detail in this garment will blow your mind. Take, for instance, the patterned skirt and how the kalis transform into a tiered silhouette as we go up. There is no missing out on the chevron accents and how Mayyur has dared to think out of the box with his usage of traditional mirror work and lace in the same garment. The use of coral in the blouse works great for the look and we love how a pattern-on-pattern effect has been created with the linear embellishments on the dupatta. Such a head-turning look!
This is the year when we wear gold and silver together! Mayyur has aced the trend with this opulent ensemble featuring a silver skirt and a red and gold blouse. To pin it together, he has added both gold and silver to the dupatta. If you like all things unique, this is the look for you!
Scroll through some of the most stylish B-town girls’ Instagram and you’d know shararas are reigning in the fashion charts RN. If your fave celeb has already inspired you to invest in one, might we recommend these steller creations by Mayyur? It is the detailed shararas and OTT dupattas that are doing it for us.
This Kutchi work lehenga can prove to be your garba game-charger! The classic combination of maroon and green has our heart. The traditional handwork hits the right spot and you can be sure of winning the “best-dressed” award at the next gathering or wedding party.
We hope you get your dream festive fit in one of these Mayyur Girotra creations. Here’s to a vibrant and stylish season ahead!
