The Sultanate Collection of Sahar Atif in TBCW 2014
The Sultanate” collection by Sahar Atif that brings exquisite embroidery with the drama of couture. The centuries’ old legacy of Islamic art, architecture and crafts is translated into the finest examples of elegant ensembles. The Sultanate is an amalgamation of purity of white-on-white juxtaposed against the modernity of Saai’s signature silhouettes……Saai’s creative techniques reinterpret intricately crafted textures through various forms of embroidery, giving each ensemble the essence of being a masterpiece. The use of motifs, floral, paisley and geometrics of the Islamic jaalis are dominant in this collection. Even though the unparalleled beauty of velvet as a base fabric is regal, a play on layering of organza adds to the grandeur of the collection.
