Asmita Aggarwal is whisked back into an era of grandeur and opulence as she speaks to Alpana Gujral about her Mughal-inspired jewellery..
Etched in time and history are the many quaint stories of how the Mughals took India by storm, ushering in an era of not just traditions but a majestic grandeur too. Alpana Gujral eloquently depicts the same beauty of the Mughal Era in her fine jewelry collection. Her avant garde designs are an inspired contradiction – a paradox of old world charm with modern day grace. “The embodiment of affluence lies in quality not in flash,” explains Alpana whose collection is considered quite over the top in design, yet tasteful; exhibiting the perfect balance of modest sophistication and intriguing vibrancy. Hailing from a family of artists, Alpana’s discerning aesthetic values in patterns, forms and lines is telling of her artistic upbringing. The subtle intricacies in her designs reveal her rich lineage, tempting you to accompany her back to the Golden 20’s.
The Golden 20’s collection is a physical manifestation of the yin and yang concept. Opposite components meticulously composed to come together in harmony. Expect the unexpected.
