Fall Winter '19

For the collection “Sanctuary”, Shriya Bhupal, revisits her inner world of lush verdant textures and flower hewn romanticism. Her inner Sanctuary, a repository of dreams, ideas, memories and promise. Her inner landscape, a space of nature and vivid imagery, which she retreats to rediscover herself time and again. Literal explorations of the garden form the essential theme of the Label Shriya Som’s Sanctuary collection. Surface textural embroideries and embellishments, often playing in layers of wistful tones or spirited contrasts. Dark and light, soft and vivid, layered or pleated, the collection explores the idea of duality.

Teased and textured fabrics in semi circular or ‘petal’ patterns, extend this theme. A play of colours seeks expression through dual tones, whether achieved by layering or dyeing techniques. Shriya Som introduces a vivid, fresh collection of occasion wear that seeks to marry the traditional with the contemporary.

Vibrant Florals, luxurious textures, rich embellishment and intricate embroidery define the silhouette whether in skirts or gowns. Known for introducing the concept of international evening wear into Indian wear, the Shriya Som bridal line employs corsetry, fabric manipulation and draping techniques along with three dimensional accents to bring an innovative, modern interpretation in couture. Rich hues of tonal reds, fuchsia pink, wine. Cobalt blue and black interspersed with undulating textural ruffles add an element of mystery to the Sanctuary.
