Amethyst Presents Festive Collections From Shorshe And Shades Of India


Alchemist Marigold By Shorshe

Marigold, the holy flower used in India in temples and homes for festivities is the main inspiration for this collection. Its myriad hues from Haldi yellow to deep ochre to deep red with sage green stems, inspire the beautiful color palette of this collection. Easy, free-flowing, comfortable silhouettes in rich handwoven textiles, with embellishments of gota and zardozi add a feminine touch to festive wear. The collection uses pure handwoven textiles like handloom tissue, handwoven benarasi silk, and fine organza is woven all done under the supervision of master weavers. Keeping in tandem with Shorshe’s sustainable ethics this pre-festive collection is ideal to usher in the cozy weddings and stay at home celebrations, the slow fashion way.
