Designers Pankaj &Nidhi create ripples with Afterglow at ICW’ 21

With renewed hope and energy designers Pankaj & Nidhi announce their brand-new Couture Collection for 2021 called Afterglow, which symbolizes a new dawn with a longing for a bright future and with stellar craftsmanship, to create pieces that are timeless and radiating an effervescent beauty.

The collection has exceptional techniques such as origami folding, handcrafted appliqués and latticework in new age materials with iridescent sheen. Adopting a path toward sustainability, many of the embroidery materials are themselves fashioned in-house out of excess generated in the process of creation.

There are grand one -of-a kind statement pieces such as trailing jackets and capes, flowing skirts with new blouses in an array of metallic hues such as chromatic gold, pearl pinks, dove greys and ruby reds – inspired by the Afterglow of a sunset lingering on the horizon.

With enticing silhouettes and the lustre of unique handmade embellishments, Afterglow pushes boundaries of craft with a quest to win the heart of a bride who appreciates symbolic and cultural identities and values authenticity.

Speaking about their association with FDCI’s India Couture Week 2021, Pankaj & Nidhi said “We are very excited to launch our collection- Afterglow at  India Couture Week 2021.  We have worked very hard to create each piece & look forward to seeing everyone’s response .The collection incorporates our signature techniques in newer silhouettes and colours.”

Solemnised for their ‘fresh and crisp sensibility’ the power couple, designers, Pankaj & Nidhi bring to you a candescent collection for celebrating special occasions and for destination weddings – where the bride is centerstage – promising to leave her guests and loved ones bathed forever in her radiant Afterglow.
