UMAIR ZAFAR’S MAGICAL TEPCHI COLLECTION WOWS RATI AGNIHOTRI
He’s always been a trendsetter of sorts in the fashion world. His relentless journey to relentlessly promote the rich cultural heritage of India is an ongoing endeavour. Noted Mumbai based fashion designer Umair Zafar has forged ahead and is all set to promote another form of Chikankari to his fashion fan followers.
Elaborating on his latest collection, Umair discloses, “Tepchi is one among the 32 types of Chikankari Embroidery. Tepchi work on the entire kurta or just the dupatta is most delicate work as it uses a very thin thread. It is difficult to make out the right and wrong side by just looking at it hence called as magic work. Each stitch is symmetric to the other. Hand embroidered tepchi work gives a decent and stylish look to either the garment.”
Umair Zafar’s new collection is a quixotic and colourful range of long and short kurtis of Lucknowi Tepchi work on Kota fabric. An entire new range of Colors and sizes which is rarely available in the market will be created to suit women of all age groups and sizes.
Bollywood actress Rati Agnihotri, who is being styled by Umair Zafar for her film Tere Aane Se was simply mesmerized with the classic creation that she insisted she wanted to wear this new trend in her film.
So for all lovers of Lucknowi fashion can get ready to be wow-ed with Umair Zafar’s Tepchi collection.
