Just days after the fashion fever got over in Mumbai, Delhi is all set to receive its share of customised extravaganza with the third edition of Delhi Couture Week that begins from today.

Metrolife brings you a sneakpeak to what can Delhiites can look forward to satiate their lust for fashion.

The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) has revealed the creative look for the PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012. The look highlights the tools that help creating couture garments.

Blue, purple, grey, green and brown on the five days will have Delhi Couture Week packaging the ornate and rich designs which celebrate the origins of the elaborate couture garments, taking inspiration from the Victorian era.

The intricate and sophisticated creative is a collaborative product of the council and senior designers David Abraham, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Rohit Bal and Suneet Varma.
The five-day long event which will culminate on August 12, will have India’s 11 leading couturiers showcasing magical collections by top Indian and international models.

Varun Bahl will open the week on Day 1, followed by JJ Valaya’s offsite show at The Grand. The torch will then be handed over to designers such as Ashima-Leena, Manish Arora, Shantanu and Nikhil, Manish Malhotra and Manav Gangwani.

The gala event will be clo­s­ed by none other than the iconic designer Sabyasachi whose collection New Moon will be a blend of austere and architectural designs.

Couture Collection 2012 will be a juxtaposition of rigidity with delicate frivolousness.

Sabya’s collection will flirt with whimsical undertones of Parsi culture and Paris in the 1920s. Says the celebrated designer, “I am privileged to be closing the PCJ Delhi Couture Week.

Customarily, there is enormous pressure on most designers to go over the top during such occasions but I am going to keep my show very restrained and structured. It will be a very modern outlook on how India perceives couture – with a strong emphasis on simplicity.”
