Dhini ‘Mughal Empress’ SS10/11 at RAFW

Dhini re-visits the 1500’s Indian Mughal Empire for her upcoming Spring Summer 2010/11 collection yet somehow translates this into an ultra-modern look. Having created an intricate digital print inspired by the distinctive architecture of the time (think Taj Mahal), Dhini then applied pleating and draping techniques to luxurious silk georgette and silk satin in ode to a pre-sari mode of dress of the age. The Persian influence is incorporated into her colour palette by way of lots of lovely, moody blues. The overall effect is of an exotic regalness.
