a designer showcase: sanyukta shrestha
Sanyukta adds “The women of the villages in Nepal have been hand weaving fabric for centuries. The reality is, however, that this is a small cottage industry and hand looming is actually on the verge of extinction. I feel incredibly privileged as a designer, to be able to put their inspirational skills to good use in my modern bridal designs. I feel it is my time to express my sincere appreciation of these women by helping them to overcome this disaster and continue to revive their industry further as my Bridal collections evolve”.
The materials used in this collection are a eclectic blend of textural and fluid fair- trade nepalese handmade organic fabrics merged with fabrics from ethical and fair trade certified manufacturers around the world. The distinct finish of this collection has been achieved from a mixture of unique hemp fabric, fine hand weaved bamboo lace, organic cotton, silk and exquisite hand-embroidery. These beautifully light and unique designs provide the right amount of charm and style for every fabulous blushing bride to be. The collection will be exclusively stocked in selected boutiques in both England and Ireland.
