Jugni Portraits of Love A Festive Collection by Mandeep Nagi

The light glimmers as she dances into the night. Jugni – Portraits of Love - is inspired by women in harmony, those who empower others and themselves, as they transition through time and life experiences. The ones who believe in the strength of solidarity, the ones who draw power from within. The life of the party, they glow as they move. She is young, while she has the charisma that comes from confidence in her years. The ones who flaunt the wildness of their hair and the ones who choose glamour with streaks of grey. She’s a muse to many, unafraid to reinvent herself. The ones who love and respect each other, our muses, they make of their lives a work of art. This collection is dedicated to them. This festive collection celebrates five colour stories in shades of red, green, natural, olive and purple. Its inspiration lies in an heirloom kurta embroidered with gota - an exquisite technique of metallic- based ribbon used on sumptuous occasions. Adapted to this collection, gota shines with twists and turns of silver and golden-copper thread - like a firefly in flight. It is embroidered on exquisite silks, woven tissue and luxurious velvets.
