A luxurious edit of the finest South Asian fashion and lifestyle collections will be presented to the public at the Winter Preview, taking place on Wednesday 9th September, 11am – 7pm, Grosvenor House Hotel, 86-90, Park Lane, London W1K 7TN.
Representing the most talked about, new gen labels across the luxe fashion and lifestyle sectors, Winter Preview will showcase seasonal collections by the leading names to watch in South Asian couture, craft and accessories, namely sumptuous prêt and couture collections by Jyoti Chandhok, Ramani and SVAM by Vandana Malhotra; coveted accessory collections by Mahin Hussain, Zevar, SS Shawls, Love Opulence and Chahat; and must-have additions for the home by Sevo.
Jyoti Chandhok is a London-based brand that fuses old world charm with contemporary couture, featuring exquisite and detailed handiwork. The collections reflect an understanding of ancient Indian designs and the innovative use of traditional crafts to create a modern interpretation of timeless elegance. Ramani’s collections combine the elegance of laces from the West with silks from the East, her exquisite designs presenting a refreshing twist on modern bridal wear. From couture bodices embellished with layered lace to more recent combinations of white and ivory lace with pale, raw silks, Ramani creates statement dresses with the look and feel of perfectly fitting and draped sarees. SVAM by Vandana Malhotra collections span a wide array of hand-woven, multicoloured kurta’s and tunics teamed with wide pants, paying homage to Persian times. The classic chikankari collection further sets rich borders with traditional motifs in bright colours. Anarkali’s and fluid skirts with long, structured jackets are an integral part of this collection.
Mahin Hussain presents on trend, luxe leather handbag and accessory collections. In 2013, she launched her signature, Formal Box Clutches – now must-have pieces that feature hand embroideries on rich fabrics. Zevar presents traditional, silver jewellery designs crafted by skilled artisans from across India, exuding an old world and rustic charm. SS Shawls present unique, real pashmina pieces created by Kashmiri craftsmen inspired by the scenic beauty of the region as well as taking inspiration from museum pieces, interpreting age-old embroideries in a contemporary context. Head Designer Dinisha’s inspiration for her Love Opulence jewellery label originated from her experience in the Caribbean, where she and her partner successfully grew their fine jewellery business. Love Opulence presents luxe jewellery that connotes quality, uncommonality, and timelessness. Fine, authentic pearl jewellery label, Chahat, combines versatility, colour, quality and design, with all pieces made in England, ensuring high-end collections through reputed craftsmanship. Sevo handcrafted, silver-plated products are inspired by Indian culture, arts and architecture, with a distinct identity appreciated by discerning consumers across the globe.
