'Padmaavat' effect on designer's aesthetics
‘Over a period of time, these characters became our muses and the entire process left an indelible mark on our own signature aesthetic,’ says the designer-duo.
For Deepika Padukone's resplendent lehengas, Shahid Kapoor's elegant achkans and jamas, and Ranveer Singh's get-up which reflected Turkish origins in Padmaavat, designer-duo Rimple and Harpreet Narula undertook challenging and extensive research, which they say has left an indelible mark on their own signature aesthetics. Set in the 13th century, the period drama directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the story of the legendary Rajput queen Padmavati, her husband and Rajput king Maharawal Ratan Singh, and Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji. The detailing in the costumes has been much appreciated.
