Mehr-Un-Nisa: Woman Resonated
Mehr-un-Nisaâ pays tribute to the royals of India. Also known to be the Mughal empress Nurjehanâ€™s original birth name, Mehr-un-Nisa directly translates to â€˜the sun of womenâ€™. The brilliance of femininity that resonates in the portrayal of Indiaâ€™s blue-blooded queens and princesses forms the basis of this collection. With gorgeously patterned, and vividly colourful Bagh work, Mehr-un-Nisa exhibits some exquisite embroidery and intricately patterned designs that are reminiscent of the maharanas and emperors of India. The bright shades of clothing celebrate the larger-than-life persona the royals garner in our hearts. Nurjehan was a woman unlike any other in her times. She refused to be treated like any other wife of a king, and her arrogance, her pride and her charisma all inadvertently became part of the regal air she exuded at the court. The ability of a woman to stand out as a sun does in the endless, cloudless skies is brilliantly explored through this collection. Mehr-un-Nisa rejoices in the virtue of difference, in the belief that every woman is a queen in her own right.
