Off the runway, down the aisle – if you missed the stunning trousseaux at the Lakmé Fashion Week, don’t worry. WeddingSutra’s style editors have cherry picked the absolute finest in bridal looks from every collection that rustled down the ramp.
AMOH by JADE – Amaat
JADE by Monica and Karishma’s Spring Summer 2017 collection from AMOH featured the Amaat collection. It’s about limitless opportunities and feeling comfortable in your own skin. What caught our eye was the bright summer palette – delicate corals, stark crimsons, and pastel blues – perfect complements to bright, sunshiny day.
Anita Dongre – Liquid Gold
Fluid silhouettes, contemporary motifs in gold threadwork, ‘unbleached, un-dyed’ natural, woven, cotton silks, Anita Dongre’s ‘Liquid Gold’ collection was bang on the precious metal trend and redefined the word ‘luxe’.
SVA Couture – Noor
Inspired by the playful beauty and dynamic grace of Mughal era nautch girls, with allusions to the British Raj in its hints of modernity, the Noor line brought allure to the ramp via interesting drapes, free flowing sleeves contrasted with structured jackets with a cold-shoulder twist in hues of burnt rose, shadow grey, lint and green tea.
Falguni & Shane Peacock – The Rebel
Always the grandmasters of glam, this collection is perfect for the daring bride looking for that one masterpiece in her trousseau. The Rebel line features stunning creations incorporating light via crystals and sequins, drama via feathered embellishments and edgy cuts in tulle and organza and a standout color palette of scarlet red, raven black and deep plum. Neutrals in champagne and nude also made an appearance.
Modern day royalty must be a delicate balance between high quality aesthetic and muted pageantry, making a clear, sophisticated style statement. Amit brought the renowned queens of the 21st century to the ramp in his showcase of red carpet gowns inspired by contemporary monarchs.
Tarun Tahiliani – Chashme Shahi
Perhaps one of our favorites, Tarun Tahiliani’s ‘Chashme Shahi’ bridal wear was inspired by Mughal gardens and architecture. The lehenga skirts, kurtas, and concept saris were flirty, asymmetric, hemlines teamed with off-shoulder tops and tunics making for effortless bridal wear ensembles. The show ended with three splendid brocade lehengas in green, bronze and navy teamed with matching silk shirts, a fresh and elegant visual treat for us.
Earthy and sublime, Jayanti Reddy’s showcase of naturally dyed, hand-woven textiles with beautiful, intricate hand embroidery was modern, playful and interesting. Flared poncho tops were teamed with dhoti pants, while angular lace tunics looked divine paired with pristine white, flared, long skirts and Victorian ruffles were a prominent inspiration at the show.
The award-winning textile designer showcased a collection of white traditional wear in muslin with gold detail in airy, voluminous silhouettes. The all-white collection was designed with gorgeous Mughal motifs and geometric patterns on Khadi, chikankari embroidery and Parsi gara.
Kotwara – Romance of Kotwara
Designed by Sama Ali with Meera and Muzaffar Ali the ‘Romance of Kotwara’ collection showcased techniques of chikan, zardozi and Kamdani on fine brocade weaves and dreamy white silhouettes. Perfect for the summer bride.
