Reign by Designer Zara Umrigar

Darpan News Desk, 19 Nov, 2019

    "There are really no boundaries or rules when it comes to fashion and I think it’s one of the most beautifully liberating ways to express yourself.” ~ Zara Umrigar

    How do you define fashion in your own words?

    Fashion to me is one of the greatest forms of expression, the freedom to portray exactly who you are without ever having to use your words. There are really no boundaries or rules when it comes to fashion and I think it’s one of the most beautifully liberating ways to express yourself. 

    What is the inspiration behind Reign?

    Reign is inspired by the powerful women in the Game of Thrones. An ode to one of my favourite TV shows of all time, this collection is fierce, bold and intricately hand-embroidered. From beaded birds and capes, to power shoulders and dramatic silhouettes – the pieces depict flight, freedom and power. It’s all about the rise of powerful women to the top!

    What has been your most memorable moment or collection till date?

    There have been so many exciting moments in my career so far but the biggest one would have to be my first show at Paris Fashion Week (PFW). It was an overwhelming and gratifying feeling to showcase my pieces on such a massive platform and to also receive recognition for it. I returned to PFW for the second time this September.

    What is the fashion forecast for 2020?

    I think 2020 will be all about exaggeration. Dramatic, statement aspects of outfits like power shoulders, bows and capes will continue to take over the runway.
