Seema Gujral's special sharara edit is versatile and colourful
Indulge speaks to Seema Gujral on her latest edit
Seema Gujral’s special sharara edit, Fiori, draws inspiration from the lilting beauty of the Italian language. “The term Fiori in Italian means floral. It's a celebration of vibrant colours, intricate cuts, and a variety of textures. The idea with this particular edit was to make a versatile, all-season range of Shararas that takes a classic Sharara silhouette and elevates it into a modern trendy look. The cut and style have been manipulated in a way that a wholly traditional outfit transforms into something entirely contemporary without losing any of the charm,” says Seema.
The colour palette ranges from contemporary nudes to sunny yellows, blues, deep wine, and burgundy reds. The fabrics used are carefully chosen to ensure a blend of tradition and modernity, with an emphasis on versatility for all seasons.
The collection features a classic Sharara silhouette with a modern twist. The embroidery details include delicate threadwork, mirror-work, and the timeless charm of gota patti, complemented by Seema’s signature touch of exquisite sequins and sparkling crystals.
