Spellbinding designs for the bride

It was an evening to remember as models showcased the best in bridal wear on the second day of the Karnataka Fashion Week.

The event, held at Bowring Institute, saw designers of repute coming together. Right from traditional wear to a melange of styles, the variety was numerous.

Seema Malhotra, whose collection ‘Shimmer’ wowed the audience during the finale said, “I’ve used a lot of crushed fabric, layering and embroidered tights. My collection is for the modern bride and the extended family as well.”

Pointing out that there is a lot of integration in styles between North and South India, Seema added, “What’s good is that a lot of brides these days are adventurous. While they know what exactly they want, they are also open to suggestions.”

   Anjali Sharma, whose collection ‘The Beauty and the Baroque!’, focussed on hand-crafted embellishments said, “A lot of effort goes into the making of each garment. While a lehenga takes about four weeks to complete, about two weeks of hard work goes into the others.” She added, “I’m really excited about the pegged pants with slightly longer cholis and a lavish dupatta which is our highlight. It’s ideal to be worn for a sangeet.

Pointing out that there is no market for saris besides on special occasions, designer Manish Saksena said, “It’s only for a special occasion that people wear saris. Although I would love to design saris as work wear, there is no market for it.” He added, “Pure weaving techniques and a lot of lace is what I use for my collection.” Prasad Bidapa, the host of the evening said, “There are a lot of silks, both from the North and South, on display.” Models Raghu Mukherjee, Ananya and Neha Tomar walked the ramp.

   “It’s lovely out here. I must say that the collections were interesting. I’m going to get married soon and I’m keen to see what’s in vogue. I’m looking for that designs can be incorporated in my wedding trousseau,” said Rashmi, a member of the audience. 

Susmita, another guest said, “I was here on the first day of the show as well. I’ve enjoyed the variety that has been showcased.” Aslam, who was keen to catch a glimpse of the collection by popular designers said, “Since I came on the first day of the show as well, I was impressed with the khadi collection for men. I might just go pick up something for myself in khadi now. But from what I have seen
of the bridal collection so far, it’s simply wonderful,”
said Aslam.
