New Delhi, 1st September, 2017 - With the summer heat giving way to warm evening parties and the festive season looming in the air, Shades of India brings to you a brand new pre- festive collection titled The minuet.
A collection that speaks of music, dance and romance, the melody of the minuet brings memories of soft colours, the rustle of ballroom gowns, silks from the East, love in the eyes, the movement of couples across the dance floor.

“A minuet, a social dance of French origin for two people, usually in evening time,” envisages the serenity of this collection”, explains Mandeep Nagi, Fashion Director, Shades of India.

The inspiration for this collection comes from dress of a Romantic period and is in tune with the brand’s aesthetics as the collection majorly focuses on the detailing of the garments and one can see how each piece has been affectionately crafted.

Sleeves are finished in hand worked crochet lace and enhanced with metallic thread. Details have been lovingly embroidered. Bees, symbols of aristocracy in France and Italy are worked in a cross stitch on a kurta. A print draws on tiny animal forms from a 19th century European painting. A dragonfly flutters across a dress in silk. Detailing catches the love of hand embroidered decoration of the period. Fabrics are light. The color palette is made up of pale pink, blueberry green, honey suckle yellow, strawberry red and sky blue which reawakens the romanticist in you.

Mandeep Nagi the Design Director, Shades of India goes on to further explain, “Soft colours, the rustle of ballroom gowns, silks from the East, love in the eyes, the movement of couples across the dance floor. I have thus gone back to what I value in a period a hundred or two hundred years ago.”

The line features a range of kurtis, dupattas and essentials that are needed to seize the pre-festive mood.

With The Minuet collection be on your mark to make an entrance none will miss and all will remember.
