If one’s wardrobe is armour against the elements, Warah Dhaka arms you for a blazing hot summer in flowy silhouettes, eco-friendly textiles, with bright pops of colour that keep it all fun

Inspired by the Mughal Tahakhana palace, built by Shah Shuja as a ‘Temperature Control Unit’ in honour of his Murshed Shah Syed Niyamatullah, Rumana Chowdhury’s line of ivory angarkhas are simple, minimalistic garments made with an architectural precision. The soothing white shade echoes the white-washed walls of the building, which have acquired a pleasant patina through the years. The striking embroidery details echo the accumulation of moss and lichen on the edifice. While the Tahakhana was intended as a winter retreat, Warah subverts the original intent to provide a breezy collection of wearables perfect for the hot Bangladeshi summer.
