Revelling In Royal Grandeur
Royalty is enticing; more so, when we speak of queens and princesses. These iconic women are not just known for their striking beauty, but also for their unwavering spirit and inimitable charm. From Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi to Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur, every queen has redefined what a woman stands for. And it would not be unfair to say that India has been home to some of the most stunning queens the world will ever see.
It is no wonder then that Latha Puttanna, just like many others, found inspiration in these women of substance. Through her artistic creations, she wanted to capture not just the beauty of royalty, but the spirit that comes with it. Her aim was to inspire women to break barriers and redefine beauty. ‘Aramana’, the designer’s latest collection of sarees does just that. With classic designs, colorful hues and intricate detailing, every creation in this collection is masterpiece, truly befitting royalty.
Take for instance the exclusive ‘Elizabeth’. Bold and dynamic, the saree brings together the beauty of checks and simple silk georgette into the weaves of the evergreen six yards. It is bordered by intricately hand-crafted appliqué work and a beautiful red embroidered panel. To complete the ensemble, Latha has paired this saree with a contrast and subtle gold butta blouse. Perfect for parties and casual evening wear, this is an attire that does not need much to accessorize it.
Latha Puttanna has always envisioned women to be sensitive, yet strong; calm, yet indomitable. Her works are an ode to the Indian woman who has made her way up the ladder with style, grace, and elegance. And this creation is just one among her wide range of collections. You can catch these exclusive designs at the Latha Puttanna exhibition, slated to be held at The Leela, Bangalore on the 9 th of December 2016.
Latha Puttanna is also proud to launch her online boutique with the mesmerizing Aramana Collection! Log on to www.lathaputtanna.com to take your pick! Experience royalty in all its glory!
A Royal Sense Of Fashion
There is something truly enticing about royalty. The tales of victorious wars, stunning palaces, and luxurious lifestyles – every aspect is a story come alive. India’s association with kings and kingdoms has existed since time immemorial; but for a designer like Latha Puttanna what is most fascinating is the grace and elegance royal fashion prides itself on.
Speaking of style, the royal icons that head Latha’s list of favorites are Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur and Princess Niloufer of Hyderabad. Particularly impressed by the fashion of the Mysore royalty, Latha has successfully recreated the look with her latest collection of weaves, ‘Aramana’ — the designer’s first showcase at the prestigious Vogue Wedding Collection 2016 in New Delhi.
For the first time in 24 years, Latha indulges in the subtlety of pastel shades. Take for instance this alluring saree from the ‘Aramana’ collection – its soft mauve shade highlights and accentuates the complexion of the beautiful Indian woman. Crafted in georgette silk, the saree boasts woven gold polka dots on the pleats and intricate applique embroidery along its border. And completing the ensemble is a stylish, sleeveless blouse, sporting hand-beaten gold and silver embroidery.
This saree is among Latha’s most versatile creations. When paired with the right accessories, it can be worn for all kinds of occasions: from weddings and pujas to a casual evening with friends. After all, one doesn’t need much reason to look like a royal!
