Lakme Fashion Week- “Gulzar” by Saroj Jalan

Heya All,


The LFW in Mumbai is going on at the St Regis. Today is Day #3 with many establised and new fashion designers showcasing their awesome collections. The highlight of the event was surely the Manish Malhotra show but one cannot simply ignore the fabulous creations by other designers as well. One such designer is Saroj Jalan.


The designer’s  passion and love for Indian traditional wear has found voice in her collection.  ‘Gulzar’  is inspired by Sakalban, a beautiful poem penned by the great Aamir Khusro.
The collection incorporates the mystic beauty of Mother Nature in a vivacious spectrum of colours.

In the poem, the poet plays with blooming yellow mustard and takes inspiration from the chirping birds. As Saroj Jalan puts it, ” My models will look like Aamir Khusro’s muses on the ramp. The poem goes, “sakalban ful rahi sarson, ban bin ful rahi sarson,ambva fute,tesu fule,koyal bole daar-daar, aur gori karat singar. In essence, the poet describes how nature flourishes in resplendent colours, as the beautiful maiden gets ready.”
Delicate floral patterns are intricately used in the garments, to lend a vibrancy and freshness.  The deft use of Zardozi and array of hand woven tussar silk and velvet enhances the wearability of the classic couture garments.
Saroj Jalan seeks to interpret Indian embroidery and takes her inspiration from both nature and Indian culture. She is known to use diverse varieties of Indian embroidery. Mirror work of Rajasthan and Gujarat, Zari work of Hyderabad, Gota work of Rajasthan, Zardozi of Delhi, Phulkari of Punjab, Chamba Rumals, Kasuti embroidery of Karnataka, Chikan embroidery, Kantha of West Bengal, Aari work etc.
