If you follow Maya Ali’s Style Diaries, then this one’s for you! We’re excited about the new Maya Pret campaign Babul, read on to know more about the philosophy behind Babul & feast your eyes on some of the choicest picks from the collection!
Maya Pret-a-Porter is a brand that specializes in modern festive and bridal dresses. It represents outfits that are both glamorous in detail and are easy to carry when it comes to quality, style and cut. Recently the brand launched its new bridal collection Babul. Let’s find out what it represents and what makes it different from the multitude of bridal collections on the market!
What Is Babul About?
According to team Maya Pret-A-Porter, the sole reason behind Babul is to pay tribute to all the brides, brides-to-be and married women. The team believes that it is not easy for girls to leave their parent’s home and slip into a brand new one at their in-laws. Hence, although it is a wonderful concept to be married and start a new family life, it’s hard for a young girl to make the transition – the bittersweet feeling is captured poetically in the campaign’s message:
Har Ghar Hi Bahaar Hain
Rishto’n Mein Be-Misaal Hain
Apni Houn Ya Parai
Betiyan Toh Sabhi BA-KAMAAL HAIN
Babul – Maya Pret-A-Porter
Notable Elements Of The Babul Campaign!
Babul collection’s outfits are specially designed for a specific desi wedding event. These dresses don’t just express our culture and customs but also express the bride’s sentiments. Following are some striking details of this campaign that can’t be unseen:
1) Bandhani-Mayon Day With Friends!
These beautiful poetic lines manifest how a bride is all set to prepare herself for her big day to look the most beautiful person on Earth. The mood is caught with color, ambience, lighting, and of course, the joras that add an atmosphere to the occasion!
2) Mehndi-Henna Designs And Endless Dances!
This captivating poem exhibits how a bride is getting ready for her big day. She seems happy and excited enough to dance off the day with her friends and loved ones in celebration of her new life. The Henna’s intense rich colour is supposed to represent the deep love between the couple-to-be.
3) Nikkah-The Invisible But Strongest Ties!
This lovely verse reveals how a bride welcomes her husband with love and respect at her Nikkah.
4) Rukhsati-The Hardest Good Bye!
This beautiful poem expresses how a bride feels about her Rukhsati. She feels scared yet excited as she will be leaving her parent’s house and entering a new home forever. As Babul elaborates, Rukhsati concludes the entire wedding celebrations where guests gather to say farewell to the newly-married couple.
5) Valima-Happy Ending Of A Big Desi Wedding!
These poetic elements resonate with the feeling of a bride on her Valima. A bride feels happy yet nervous as she attends this event from the groom’s side and not her parent’s side – a symbol of domestic happiness in the household post-marriage.
