Sabyasachi’s Gharara

Old wedding pictures from Punjab fascinate me. I have many images of Anand Karaj ceremonies that I have collected over the years. They have come from Daulatpur, Hoshiarpur, Amritsar, Moga, Bhatinda, Patiala, Phagwara, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Pathankot and many more cities and districts. What is common to them is the quiet dignity, serenity and the wonderful visual language of cultural clothing. It is heartwarming, powerful, and has a strange, unsettling sense of contemporary nostalgia. These are timeless, traditional clothing. You cannot tamper with them. Only present them again, unaltered, to a modern audience. In this context I want to add something- today I do not see myself only as a designer; but also a ferryman between the past and the present. The lady wears a silk mashru kurta, embroidered with ‘tilla’ bel-butti and border, chowki design aari-taari dupatta and a mashru gharara with ‘tilla’ details. The gentleman is wearing a Burma Ivory quilted Murshidabad silk sherwani with Bengal tiger house buttons. Jewellery Courtesy: The Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection.

Raw Mango’s Sharara

Reminiscent of an era by gone: from housing a large collection of royal Punjab portraits to the glass doors bear etchings of the Maharaja’s coat of arms and the illuminated cusped arches – the Baradari Palace transports one to the time of old colonial bungalows of the royal past. @ashishnshah photographed ‘Heer’ at @neemrana.hotels who have restored the palace reusing the original materials: ‘Minton clay tiles in the verandah, Burma teak flooring in the main hall, mosaic chip floors and the thick wooden batons in the roofs.’ Featured: Model @sheryl_bennett99 in ‘Rukmani’ organza sharara & ‘Rajshri’ silk satin odhani Art Direction: The illiberals Styled by: @navelichoyal @kshitijkankaria Vintage Jewels by @kishandasjewellery Visual Communication: @squadron14 #heer #sanjaygarg #festive #bridal #newcollection #patiala #punjab #textile #archive #brocade
