With a whimsically romantic sounding name, Diva’ni is all about sartorial creativity, showbiz culture and modern craftsmanship. It is a labour of love that arose from the collaboration of two companies – Yash Raj Films which is India’s celluloid hub for stellar romantic masterpieces that have mesmerised audiences from decades ago till today – and New Delhi-based KBSH Pvt Ltd – one of India’s largest independent heritage fashion houses that celebrates the finest in ethnic fashion for women of India.
Diva’ni is a fusion of inspirations from cinema, fashion, art, heritage and imbues the wearer with a sense of possibilities with its modern silhouettes and magnificent attention to details.
Diva’ni Summer Couture 2017 is the brand’s interpretation of the great Parisian legacy of style and substance wrapped up in romance and elegance. ‘The Ivory Kiss’ is an inspiring collection of off-the-rack fashion that takes its cue from the uber refined design sensibilities symbolic of Paris. Subtle summer colors have been incorporated into regal silhouettes with fine craftsmanship in The Ivory Kiss collection. Diva’ni has also introduced their accessory line – Diva’ni Accessories – which opens up a new foray for the brand this year.
With the spring summer couture launch, Diva’ni takes their audience through a unique destination wedding ensemble trail. The silhouettes range from short dresses, structured sarees, and gowns to contemporary bridal lehengas. Every ensemble can be styled and coordinated in multiple ways for multiple occasions. Here we showcase five creations from their latest collection:
The ‘Black Swan’ Look
‘The Ivory Kiss’ brings you the happiest black story this summer with mother of pearl and metal blade elements, aesthetically put together by authentic zardozi techniques. This ensemble consists of a high-waist skirt with an overlapping top and a cape. Ditching the monotonous dupattas this summer, this outfit is #goals for your destination reception or that fun summer cocktails party.
The Fusion Mehndi look
If you feel that lehengas are passe for that fun mehndi ceremony, you can opt for this quirky yet comfortable draped dhoti ensemble from the Ivory Kiss. The brand’s signature fish-scale crop top and scallop cape are just what you need to make a statement and leave a mark at your mehndi event, just like your henna will do.
Old Hollywood Glamor Look
Bringing the flapper era back, this fringe box-cut slit dress is all about Indian elements meeting Parisian aesthetics. Boasting of thousands of metal ombré handmade fringes in a fish-scale pattern, this gown will give you a ravishing retro edge. Dipped in hues of pastel purple, this thigh-high slit, sheer gown will turn heads at any high-powered event.
East Meets West Look
This black prêt jumpsuit is all you need to be the ultimate party popper! Keeping it subtle yet flamboyant, this ensemble is embellished with mother of pearl and kundan work on the bodice. Perfect for a glamorous night gala, this jumpsuit can do double duty from the dais to the disco floor.
Diva’ni Chevron Look
Adding a little funk to the signature Diva’ni chevron skirt is this fringed crop top blouse. Handcrafted fringes made from metal bugle beads hanging from scalloped kundan and mother of pearl blouse, this combination is for the new-age bride who is young at heart and bold in her fashion choices.
