Luxe Lookbook in brocade for Diwali
There’s nothing more luxe than Benarasis when it comes to festive dressing. Whether it’s the Diwali puja or the taash party, a brocade Benarasi outfit is an instant way to go glam and luxurious.
In designer Pinki Sinha’s recent collection based on brocade, complex floral patterns of “bel, jaal, butas, jangla and meena” are woven in gold and silver thread by the master weavers of Benaras. “The motifs are mostly from old gharanas of weaving and many of them are inspired by the Mughal era. The old-world feel is balanced with modern silhouettes like jumpsuits, kurtas, tunics and skirts, while saris remain the showstopper of the collection,” said Pinki, who has been working with Benarasis for the past four years.
