Athiya Shetty turns golden princess for designers Shyamal, Bhumika


Athiya Shetty, the daughter of Suniel Shetty and Mana Shetty set the ramp on fire as she walked for designer duo Shyamal and Bhumika. She looked no less than a princess in golden ensemble as she walked the ramp Athiya is decked with matching golden ornaments and she kept her silky straight mane open.  
The designer -duo showcased their exotic collection titled "The Princess's Soiree", and made their debut at India Couture Week (ICW) 2017, on Wednesday.

"I have always been an admirer of Shyamal and Bhumika, and been inspired by Indian art and craft. Seeking inspiration from the rich Indian heritage and history from the ancient culture, Shyamal and Bhumika create couture collections relevant to modern day sensibilities," Athiya told IANS.

"The play of colours and the silhouettes in their designs are stunning, and it is my absolute pleasure and honour to be the showstopper for their first-ever association with India Couture Week," she added.

Shyamal and Bhumika’s collection were inspired from the rich Indian heritage and history. Their blend of Indian and European contemporary bridal wear was stunning. 

"The Princess's Soiree" complimented their last bridal collection, "The Merchant Princess". 

"As the unheard story of 'The Merchant Princess' unravels, the grandeur of ancestral roots, eclectic architecture and picturesque panorama of lush gardens is painted before us. She's a living montage of the whimsical things she's witnessed, and all the beautiful people that stirred her heart on the way," said Shyamal.

"Taking portions of them and imbibing it on her own panache, that's what she lives for. The story is about her travels from India to Europe and back, and the various inspirations she gets influenced with. 'The Princess's Soiree' vaguely borrows from some ancestral stories from their own family from the late 1800s," added Bhumika.
