PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2016 was opened by MAHGUL who showcased her first complete A/W’16 bridal collection titled “The Trunks of Sabine”. The Trunks of Sabine weaves a narrative through the imaginary and historic character of Sabine; journeying into the depths of her majestic trunks, to discover a pastiche of various artisans and influences that Sabine met through her travels, from Persia to the Khyber Pass and across the Subcontinent.
From the reinterpretation of traditional handwork techniques inspired by the fluidity of the marbles stone to ancient bejeweled armour, Mahgul created bespoke prints and textures across a monochromatic palette for this collection. With linear and layered silhouettes true to the MAHGUL philosophy of presenting progressive fashion, concentrating on surfaces and silhouettes that are modern and that can be worn individually, the collection was true to MAHGUL’s design aesthetic. Trends highlighted in this collection included an evolutionary continuation of the brands 3D sculptural embellishments first introduced at bridal week in 2015, newly created hand work techniques, waisted cuts, Belts, Clutches and Layered trousers.
Additionally, MAHGUL is one of only three designers hand-picked by L’Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris to collaborate on the beauty meets fashion platform, to create and define a distinct bridal makeup look for the season. MAHGUL has also artistically interpreted her bridal week collection through a bespoke installations in partnership with L’Oréal Makeup Designer Paris to be displayed at bridal week itself.
