From showcasing the Capital’s history through beautiful garments to Masquerade style mystery — day 4 wasn’t the one to miss aambyvalleyindia bridal fashionweek. Another day, another dose of exquisite designs. The fourth day of the ongoing Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013, in association with Azva, saw a mix of drama and old-world beauty.
While designer duo Ashima-Leena started with Dastangoi, to tell the city’s tale, Rohit Bal’s stage set was nothing less than breathtaking, accompanied by signature melodies. Commenting on Azva being the official presenting partner of Bal’s show, Vipin Sharma, director, jewellery, World Gold Council said, “It’s our pleasure to present the collection by Rohit Bal, a maestro of exquisite bridal couture. His collection resonates with the concept of our gold bridal jewellery for the modern Indian bride.”
Dhotis in varied wrap styles, embellished churidaars and voluminous shararas were the mainstay Matte, duo-toned shades of gold, and bronze with a dash of muted pinks, greens and reds, ruled the ramp Short, voluminous anarkalis in sheer fabric were an interesting take on bridalwear kurtas Models sashayed down the ramp with side hairtwists styled into a side braid. We loved the Mughal vibe but we were left asking for more in terms of newer detailing
A smattering of Elizabethan collars, V-neck corsets and bandhgalas for a bride who loves everything vintage Embroidered peacocks, paisley and flowers in the traditional Kashmiri style, added to the Victorian vibe Flowing robes teamed with bandhgala jackets and sandals, were an interesting take on menswear Choker-like necklaces, jhumkas and chunky bangles were also featured, and the exquisite embroidery took spotlight. Again, we wanted to see a larger dose of the ivory and gold numbers
