Highlight Story

The penultimate day saw audiences glued to their seats and their gaze transfixed to the runways. A day of veterans, designer Adarsh Gill started with a show that saw contemporary silhouettes meet traditional detailing. And, Suneet Varma ended it with a mesmerising, Homeric tale of gorgeous designs, inspired by the ancient city of Pompeii, at the ongoing Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013, in association with Azva.

The day also saw the launch of NRG drink - the official presenter of Varma’s show. Romie Dutt, executive director, Sahara India Pariwar, said, “NRG is for people who are desirous to reignite their passion in them and to explore inner talent like Suneet Varma, who is one of the most talented designers in the country. We are very pleased to associate with him.”

Evolution


Adarsh Gill


Exaggerated, shimmery embellishments on traditional outfits added signature retro, 70s vibe


Sheer shararas layered with lace in the same colour and teamed with sequinned kurtas, were interesting


Ombre-hued saris, kurtas and heavily-embellished sleeveless jackets and sherwanis were also showcased


We loved the tassel earrings, glittery and dangling chain halo headbands, as well as


the short sequinned dresses. Just wish the styling suggested a way to fashion them for a wedding

The golden bracelet
Suneet Varma
Elegant saris draped like a toga were a part of this collection, meant for a bride who loves all things gilded and Grecian
The olive wreath like gold headgear, coiled armlets and multiple rings added to the romantic vibe
The tasteful applique on velvet saris, tiered skirts, sheer churidaars and bustiers added a dash of feminine charm
The head drapes and frilly, lace jackets with a delicate hood amped up the traditional-yet-classy Roman vibe. We would have loved to see more of the powder blue pieces he showcased
