Aalia’s Highlights: Indian Bridal Fashion Week – Weeks 4 to 5
Falguni and Shane Peacock: The Garden of Eden – Week 4
Falguni and Shane Peacock took us through their fashion paradise with bridal and evening gowns full ghagras, anarkalis, farshi pyjamas, kalidaar saris teamed with bustier, halters and shrugs. Using myriad hues such as pistachio, pink, ivory, gold and combining them with intricate silhouettes the collection is intended to celebrate nature.
Floral motifs, vintage laces and delicate feathers amalgamated with net, chiffon and georgettes play the perfect back story for the collection. Neha Dhupia wore the showstopper piece which was a cleverly tailored gown cinched in at the waist with a belt. I also loved the modern take on the red sari and the flower adornments in the hair – so romantic!
Tarun Tahiliani: Marriage, Mystic and Magic – Week 5
Elegance, style, craftsmanship and impeccable quality are terms synonymous with Tarun Tahiliani in every sense. He is known to incorporate traditional Indian drapes, textiles and techniques in modern contemporary form to achieve an international look in his ensembles.
Tarun Tahiliani, presented his collection- Marriage, Mystic and Magic by putting up a grand finale for this 6 day bridal extravaganza. The who’s who of the fashion fraternity and capital’s social scene were present to witness the finale of this bridal saga.
A shimmery bustier teamed with a nude colour sari, fine tissue-like silhouettes draped with pyjamis, skimpy dresses, and long floor-grazing jackets over dresses were certainly eye catching. Appliqué and Swarovski saris, bell sleeves with high collared necks, and floral backless blouses, use of multiple chains to create a yet another blouse with a sari, and long flowy anarkalis were showcased to describe the contemporary element in his collection.
Lisa Haydon, the show stopper for the evening closed the show in a soft pastel embroidered lehenga by the designer.
