Indian festive Wear

Here is something special for the coming festive and wedding seasons.

Celebrating my love for traditional fashion and a special celebration of Temple Inspired treasures. Constant collaborations with  wonderful brands who are reinterpreting of what is old and creating something new. The focus  is on reincarnation of  our heritage for generations today and the future. For many of you who do not know about “temple jewellerly”, there is a special language to the designs of this wonderful form. Deeply rooted in the opulence and crafts inspired from the architecture of temples and local customs. Rohini Ramamurthy , the founder of AACAI designs speaks passionately of giving back to the community and reviving handicrafts. The design concepts crafted by local communities in villages across the south are a treat. They work with her in creating these amazing pieces with metal alloys, dyes, beads, enamels, leather, textiles in affordable ways. The intent is also to support local communities and create livelihoods.

The TASSLED Prabhavali

Indian festive wear

One of the brands most dramatic designs is this beautiful celebration of the temple” prabhavali“. The term denotes, the shrine within temples in which the main gods are placed. Specially in a variety of motifs they are like arches in a variety of design with engravings. Aacai has taken this design and converted it into this royal pendant design with studded floral “kempu” motif hangings within them. The necklace is roped with a deep vermilion tassel strings which adds a celebratory touch. Seen in the many images below they are paired with the brands strategic “mango motif” enamel earrings.Royal Indian Designs

When the contemporary comes into play in this very elegant neck wire , you can turn heads. A simple detail with kempu motifs at the ends , this can easily create an accent on any outfit. The red and green stones are trademark from temple motifs. Worn here as in the overall shoot with a jet black Dhoti and Embroidered Kurta. The bird motifs in the Parsi design blend well with the royal South Indian Flavors.https://www.instagram.com/vamuseum/
