Royaye Sefid IV ”Resham Firiri” 2014
Leila Hafzi‘s bridal range Royaye Sefid (Bright Dreams) is a line of innovative bridal dresses and evening gowns for a grand entrance. Her fourth collection Royaye Sefid IV Resham Firiri, means Flying Silk in Nepalese. The classic fabrics are lovingly woven and tailored into uniquely delicate creations with exciting new textures appearing in the form of hand-made silk rosettes.
The inspiration for the Flying Silk collection comes from the mystical geometry and ornate texture of flowers, the epitomy of love and grace. The gowns have emerged as part of an adventure through dramatic and dreamlike landscapes, the very landscapes that originally inspired Leila Hafzi when she first visited Nepal 16 years ago and decided to merge local craft with high end fashion. Through artisan hand-painting techniques and intricate embelishment, the floral theme has been translated into these sublime dresses.
The signature pallet of the soft colours lavender mist, tender peach and a rose hint suggest a journey with moments of pure spirituality and discovery, punctuated with bright hibiscus red, plumeria yellow and emerald green to express the rich thread of romance which is ‘Nepali Life’. As with all Royaye Sefid Collections, the gowns and styles are available in soft hues, as well as a variety of brighter colours for Red Carpet and other special events.
In order to capture the feeling of bliss that bound Leila Hafzi to dedicate her life to creating high end designs, she returned to the very sites that inspired her at the beginning of her journey. She would like to invite you to share her flight back on a silk thread in time. Resham Firiri.
