Silk defines luxury.
The glamorous fabric has always remained a favourite of style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor to Bollywood fashionistas like Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan. The luxe fabric has come a long way, from being an evening wear staple to finding its way to bed linen (there’s nothing as luxurious as silk sheets), silk lingerie, scarves, gloves, the usual wedding wear and even cool bomber jackets. There’s nothing or no one that silk hasn’t touched.
Designers have been working with the fabric, recreating it in new and glamorous ways since the beginning of time. Some stand out more than others; designer Ammara Khan is one of them and she has just introduced her Glamazon collection featuring lustrous ensembles on satin and velvet in jewel tones.
The power of silk is that the fabric can be moulded to dress for any time or occasion. Colours are crucial when it comes to lush fabrics; you tend to fall into a dull rut if you play too safe. Thus, Ammara Khan has opted for warm and bold shades paired with pastel hues to break the monotony. The assortment has fresh and rich colour combinations with some distinct designs.
We love the look and feel of this charcoal grey, raw silk pant suit. This chic ensemble is perfect to dress up for dinner parties. Bright magenta trimmings and rich hand-embellished bead work with lace appliqués in black crystals and sequins add to the glamorous feel of the outfit. The slim straight pants are embellished at the hem to complete the look.
Get your hands on this lovely ruby red if you’ve got places to go. The beautiful silk velvet shirt is paired with jacquard pants. Love those brocade cuff details and an embellished hemline. Add more charm to it with a statement necklace.
This striking teal and pink combination will steal the limelight, especially its elaborately beaded culottes and a chic self-printed tunic with tassel details over the neckline. The design has fresh tailoring tactics such as tiered sleeves and hemline. The silhouettes are unique, bold and spell luxury in its true sense.
A heavy silk brocade and embroidered motif is added over a gorgeous maroon base with beautiful leafy patterned embellished cuffs. The velvety shirt is accentuated with deep-sea turquoise pants with scalloped edges in tones of rich gold.
The plush ensembles have a sleek, satiny and glossy finesse and are available as separates, which is perfect for party wear.
