The Nida Azwer Atelier is set to showcase a bridal collection entitled “The Hyderabad Collection”, at the Bridal Couture Week in Lahore on the 29th of November.
For her collection, designer Nida Azwer draws inspiration from the traditional Hyderabadi aesthetic. The collection highlights the grandeur, luxury and affluent lifestyle of the Hyderabadi Nawabs, through rich fabrics such as Maisuri silk, brocade, featuring intricate embroideries of exotic birds, dragonflies and other creatures inspired from French floral as well as figurative embroidery inspired by Mughal miniatures.
In terms of silhouettes, expect voluminous Hyderabadi dupattas paired with classic Hyderabadi shirts with low backs, choli lehnga’s featuring detailed Resham work and signature Nida Azwer angharkha’s, all in a diverse color palette of off-white, gold, silver, yellows, greens and pinks with accents of dark greys and browns, ivories and coppers.
Speaking about her collection for the Bridal Couture Week, Nida Azwer said “My latest collection pays homage to the bygone Hyderabadi era, allowing us to revive craft, design and silhouettes from that period in history. I have always had a passion for the more classic and vintage design elements infused with traditional crafts such as ‘tukri ka kaam’, ‘rilli’, ‘kantha’, ‘hirmich’, ‘shadow work’ ,‘zardozi’ and ‘miniature embroidery’ worked into contemporary fashion silhouettes all of which is manifest within The Hyderabad Collection”.
