Lucknow-based Tilsim is a brand new label that’s the brainchild of designer Sagarika Mehrotra. The label focuses on occasion outfits — from co-ord sets to lehengas and anarkalis to shararas and saris in between. We catch up with the designer to talk about their first collection, Amalbagh.

Tell us about the new collection, what was it inspired by?
Taking inspiration from the eternal paradise on earth, Kashmir, Tilsim’s very first collection is inspired by its mesmerising valley and the flowers from the famous Mughal Gardens. With amal — a pure heart and intentions and bagh — a garden; there is nothing as pure as mother nature and hence, the name.

Are there any motifs or designs that are specific to this collection?
The intricacy of the Mughal Gardens of Kashmir, lends itself to the motifs and patterns of embroidery on the garments. Special focus is on keeping the work delicate and showcasing the age-old technique of aari work and usage of zardosi. The fabrics are luxurious chiffons, organza and silks that lend a sophisticated aura.
