India Bridal Fashion Week 2014: A Peek At What Dominated The Ramp This Year
As wedding season approaches, every bride is on the lookout for the perfect outfit. The 6th edition of the India Bridal Fashion Week, held in Delhi, ended last weekend, and you brides out there may well be satisfied. Following the 2013 trendsetting edition, the 2014 event was highlighted by simplicity and elegance, as each designer brought out a different aspect to the modern bride.
Traditional Meets Contemporary
Indian brides have begun to opt for lighter, simpler styles in modern hues like gold, black and maroon. The collection put up by Tarun Tahiliani echoed these sentiments as strong colours and intricate detailing dominated his pieces.
Designer duo Gauri and Nainika’s modern take on bridal wear resulted in crafty, formal pieces in red, white and black. Layers, crossover patterns, ruffles and trails took centrestage, as each model flaunted the signature red lip and statement black heels.
Shane and Falguni Peacock did what they do best—a unique portrayal of the modern-day bride, with velvet and sheer materials.
Pink pastels stood out in Jyotsna Tiwari’s collection, as each item oozed comfort with light material and minimal detailing.
For both men and women, royalty-inspired styles were designed with dhotis, cummerbunds and bandhgalas. The Arabian Nights were brought to life with Ashima-Leela’s floral creations in jewel tones of red, gold, silver and blue.
Suneet Verma focused on opulence, with velvets, mirrorwork and embroidery in dark shades of red and blue and light hues like pink and ivory. The spiky tiaras added a resplendent touch!
Drawing from the Awadh culture, Meera and Muzaffar Ali’s collection was inspired by royalty. Whites, creams, peaches and blacks took over, with sequinned adornments.
Paving the way for India’s rich heritage was JJ Valaya, with his mixtures of colours and designs representing the diversity of cultures in India.
It’s not just the clothes!
Azva put up its very own show at the Bridal Week this year, because what is a bride without her statement jewellery!
