Client - Le Sutra - Shringar (Adornment)
‘Shringar’ is the art of adornment, romance, culture, beauty and enjoyment. It is a popular fact that women, through adornment and beautification attract men. But what is more interesting, is that it is said with Shringar a woman acts like a magnetic force and draws a man’s aura. Fascinatingly, this becomes a method of increasing her aura and ultimately leading to boosting her ‘shakti’ (strength).
Shringar is the delicate unison of beauty and grace. Queens and princesses spent a lot of their time in ‘solah shringar.’ The term Shringar also represents female magnificence, good luck, prosperity and fertility; the room thus inspires all this.
