Dazzling Affair

Show of glamour and glitter

A fashion show, which was part of the ‘Asia Wedding Fair 2013’, was recently held at a hotel in the City. Jewellers and designers from across Bangalore took part in it, using this as an opportunity to display the best of their work. There were some truly stunning pieces of jewellery, showcased by models, which dazzled the members of the audience.

Designers such as Sobha Nickham, Maria Rosa and Nimrita Lalwani and jewellers such as Pathi Gold Jewellery, Premmero, Raj Diamonds and Sri Krishna Jewellers participated in the fair. “The fashion show has been organised as a curtain raiser to the ‘Asia Wedding Fair’. We have roped in some good jewellery brands for the show,” says Harish Sachdev, the organiser of the show.The evening started with a collection of bridal gowns by Maria Rosa in shades of white. The collection was complemented with jewellery from Premmero. Paired with the ethereal white gowns, the jewellery made quite a statement — from diamond neck pieces studded with rubies and emeralds to diamond tiaras and matching earrings. 

Father and son duo Eshwar and Rakesh Pathi, from Pathi Jewellers, say that the show was a great platform for them to exhibit the best that they had. “Today, we are showcasing our ethnic as well as diamond collection. All these pieces have been designed in-house and have a unique blend of contemporary and ethnic design. They have been designed to suit the occasion and enhance the beauty of the bride. We are exhibiting a lot of uncut diamonds. One of our specialities is kundan jewellery,” explains Rakesh.

The gowns were followed by the ethnic section, which had a lot of variety — from anarkalis to heavily-embroidered lehengas teamed with gold and diamond sets. The saris — with elegant embroidery and paired with chunky diamond and gold earrings — stole the show.The evening gown section was attractive. Coupled with right jewellery, the attire was chic and contemporary. One of the interesting looks was a stylish black evening dress, teamed with a kamarband; it looked quite appealing on the ramp. A red evening gown with a slit up the side, combined with a matching stone-studded gold set, was an eclectic combination of different styles. 

The showstoppers, who were popular radio jockeys of various FM stations, livened up the stage with their presence. The stars of the show, though, were the clothes and jewellery.
