I LOVED Payal Singhal’s last collection and as gorgeous as this collection is, it just for me isn’t as WOW as her last. I love all the new embroidery techniques she’s used- the mix of heavy encrusted stone work mixed with delicate filgree work. The colour palette is refined as ever as is her mixing of jaquards, silks and embroidery. The reason I don’t think its as Wow as her last is down to her silhouettes, she looked to a Midsummer Night’s Dream for inspiration and some of the empire line, dropped waist styles and full bottoms are just not that flattering to the figure. I say this (I’m probably being uber-critical) but she still is one of the best bridal designers and there are a few pieces that will be making their way into my wardrobe!
Absolutely stunning piece!
