Designers Rimple & Harpreet made 300 outfits across two years for Heeramandi

Designer duo Rimple and Harpreet Narula, who started their tryst with costume making in 2018 with the magnum opus Padmaavat, have made over 300 spectacular ensembles in a span of two years for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali yet again for his debut series Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar.
Keeping in mind the theme, the designers had to work on the “historical backdrop and location” for the series to make the outfits.
Harpreet told IANS: “It’s set in pre-partition India, specifically in the undivided Punjab region, with a focus on Lahore. This resonates deeply with us because my family comes from Gujranwala in Punjab, so I’ve grown up hearing stories about that time from my grandparents and aunts.”
“Even though we can’t actually go there, exploring the fashion of past times is really interesting to me. While we’ve seen movies about courtesans from places like Lahore, Lucknow, and Kolkata, Heeramandi offers a fresh perspective on Lahore’s culture that hasn’t been seen much before.”
Talking about how many outfits and how much time it took to make them, Rimple replied: “We have made over 300 outfits for the series in a span of two years.”
It wasn’t easy, as it “took extensive research to put these outfits together,” she said. (IANS)
