When Charu Parashar's Spring Summer 2014 collection "A Persian Dream" opened with the track Endless Reverie from the album Elysium For The Brave by Persian singer Azam Ali ...... I shivered with goose pimples at a coincidence ..... Azam Ali, Iranian singer raised in Panchgani, India and resident of Los Angeles and Quebec is also someone who is known for her unique jewellery pieces, specially the Farvahar or winged disc - the national symbol of Iran and the Medallion and vine motif design from the Carpets of Isfahan ....  truly unique jewellery and therefore she is frequently featured in Blogger style diaries across the globe ! ..... I have been recently following the sartorial style of Azam .... And then million of miles away in the East, here was Charu Parashar presenting her Persian Dream to a soundtrack of Azam Ali !! .... Co incidence is it not ? .... The Resham embroidery motifs in her persian collection, also reminded me of William Morris's illustrations of the Rubayat of Omar Khayyam, the dome of Sheikh Lotfollah Mosqueand the Persian motifs taken from the rich textile culture of the Safavid dynasty of ancient Iran ..... which also gave birth to our own Mughal motifs descended from the Timurid dynasty of Iran !!! ...... CP's romantic sexy sophistication with flowing hemlines and breezy sleeves brought ancient Persia onto the modern red carpet ..... and her finale gowns certainly brought in the whiff of the Bengali Garad and/or Korial saree ..... with its pristine white with red border  .... the colour palette was very basic salmon pink to red to white ..... the show was stylized with bandana caps with latkans, gold hoops and disc ear rings, bracelets, with pearl, gemstone, and mesh potli, minaudiere and clutches ...... The make up was subtle and classy with a sharp half winged liner on the eyelids with gold highlights in the corner, and a nude pale pink lip.

"I am really excited about this season. The new reinvented look is inspiring. I have experimented with print and embroidery. This time I tried to create a very classic look. The print is basically inspired by Persian carpets and culture. We have done a lot of resham work," Charu said.
The designer added that through her collection she is trying to create an identity for today's woman with clothes which don't just make style statements but are also classic in appeal.
The ecru coloured garments lend a dreamy feel. She also used a lot of Banarasi chanderi for her white collection. It has sheer bodices in net, embroidered with resham work. The translucent feel to the apparels adds sensuousness. - Post Show Press Meet interview.
