ASHIMA LEENA
Runway Report
 

Ashima Leena is a name you hear on the wedding circuit more and more these days. What makes the duo popular? An influential celebrity stylist seated adjacent to me remarked: "The looks are fresh and fluid and straightforward." That summed up the designers' couture offering quite well.

After years in the biz, the duo feel they've turned a corner with couture. With a loyal clientele to dress they aimed to make the collection "strict and wearable with a balance between structure and femininity." Pre-draped saris and lehengas, shararas and angrakas—embellished with gota borders or jewelled embroidery—took center stage. A cream suit with beaten gold work came out as the best among structured looks. The stylist had neglected to mention one thing in her explanation of the duo's success: lightness. Despite the handwork, the looks—with the exception of a liberally embellished pink bridal lehenga—seemed weightless. That's got to count for something when worn hours by the bride or family on the wedding day and accompanying ceremonies!
