Ritu Kumar says, “Fashion in India more so than anywhere else in the world depends largely on an indigenous history. It has been a rewarding experience to yet again go to craft areas rich in textile tradition and revive them to suit today’s fashion.”

Ritu Kumar’s Falaknuma Collection showcase at the Taj Lands End last night was something else! The music, the opulence the models everything just magical (plus pretty much every girls dream wedding trousseau *hint hint*) The exceptional collection highlighted the heritage of craftsmanship that the city of royal Hyderabad is renowned for (and OMG I am now dying to go checkout their Taj property which is the restored Falaknuma palace, former residence of Nizam Mehboob Ali Khan, it looks divine!)
The Falaknuma Show was inspired by the interiors of the famed palace of Hyderabad and integrated the tradition of fine sensitivity of textile craft and design. Plus the weather was just right for berry cocktails in the lawn!
Spotted: Lara Dutta, Raveena Tandon, Mandira Bedi, Gul Panang, Queenie Singh, Madhoo Shah, Gauri Pohoomull, Laxmi Nair, Sheila Bhogilal, Haseena Jethmalani, Chhaya Momaya, Nisha Javeri, Sunaina Wahi, Mala Hemnani, Vanita Bhandari, Nawaz Singhania, Reena Wadhwa, Jaideep & Seema Mehrotrta, Farzana Contractor, Smita Parekh,Harsh Goenka, Sumeeta Ghai, Urvi Piramal, Rohita Doshi, Meena Raheja, Rashna Talati, Pallavi Jaikishan and the super regal Shabana Azmi and cutsie Dia Mirza on stage as showstoppers were a definite bonus! (Loads more pix here.)
Psst! My boyfriend totally dug the music, a combo of Hyderabadi, Rajasthani and Sufi Tunes that I simply must get my hands on, anyone?
