A look back in time with Shahrukh Amin

It does not come as a surprise that designer Shahrukh Amin is a romantic at heart. His designs can almost always be connected to a dreamy novel of the ‘20s through to the ‘70s. Featuring a plethora of crystals, pearls, sequins, zardozi, beads and vintage lace-inspired saris, it takes every woman through a starry-eyed journey that is exhilarating.

Even the colours evoke a sense of nostalgia, with soothing hues such as ivory, beige, ocean blues, greens, and corals to sizzling hot blood reds and wine, he has every colour for the differing moods of women. But it is his personalised couture, especially his regal evening wear and bridal wear, that gives away his true nature as a romantic.

The vintage-heirloom inspired pieces at Shahrukh Amin's are meticulously hand-crafted, with many connections to history. If you were ever a fan of the Tagore household and loved the way women wore their saris and wanted to replicate the same style, Shahrukh Amin's collection of vintage saris is your pick. Each sari has a separate story to tell, with heavily embroidered blouses, paars and anchals telling the medieval stories of the royal ladies, it is as if history comes back to life with each of his creations.

To make every look more authentic and a pure recreation of the past aristocracy of our nation, Amin encourages his fans to pair every design with traditional jewellery, maybe even heirloom jewellery and antique bags, if possible.















"I love playing with jewellery with all my designs, the beauty is farther enhanced with a beautiful pairing," said the designer.

Finally, all be said, the regal, vintage collection by the renowned designer will take fans from the times of a greater India, to the present-day aristocratic Bangladesh. It will take the enthusiasts through a rainy day in Old Dhaka to the streets of Sonargaon. Even a stormy night in Dhaka looks romantic through the rose-tinted view of his vintage creations.

"I want my clients to fall in love with the sari in general. I want to tell everyone that it is simply not just a traditional wear, but much more. Sari is a part of our heritage, our past and each piece should reveal a story that it worth telling," the designer concludes.
