New Delhi, March 10 (IANS) Designer duo Ashima-Leena will celebrate the affluent soul of Persian culture in an Indian form with diverse motifs at the forthcoming edition of Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW), starting here on March 16.

Influenced by the rich divine motifs of Persian carpets, the luxurious prêt collection titled “Fragrance of Persia” is a complete range of cascading prints, appliqué and playful tassels originating from an analysis on Persian culture peppered with authentic elements of Persia.

The silhouettes are layered and flowing, capturing a balance of vogue for the modern fall-winter twist and simultaneously relishing the rich fantasy of the Persian beauty.

“This year’s Amazon collection has been inspired from the rich persian culture. The element and the motifs of persian carpets have been my main source of inspiration behind this collection. Our entire collection is a unique combination of prints, appliqué and specially developed embellishments reflecting the true Persian soul and theme of the show,” Leena told IANS.

Leena said that the collection is all about “asymmetrical silhouettes, sheered square tops, flowy skirts, short kaftans and different styles of cowl pants”.

“Colours like olive, antique gold, copper tones, merlot-wine, black, navy blue and mustard will be witnessed in our collection with an amalgamation of different fabrics like twill silk, organza, flat chiffon, crepe and felt,” Leena added.
