Aartivijay Gupta's Fall collection features immaculate cuts and intricate embroidery on outfits, inspired by the elegant Indian silhouette. Nude dresses with embroidered necklines followed sheer white tunics worn over gold trousers. Outfits with delicate zardosi work were paired with gold-bordered dupattas.
Salwars were paired with a high collared short pink kameez and a draped yellow tunic with bunched floral formations along the back complemented by coordinated sashes. Anarkali-style tunics, with empire waists and flared skirts in coral, green and white were trimmed with bands of velvet in complementary colours.
Parul Chopra and Shriya
Silk gowns, short dresses, saris and salwar kameezes were on offer as designers Parul Chopra and Shriya displayed their 'Spontaenia' collection.
A short gold halter-top was accompanied by a skirt with vertical bands of purple shades replete with gold embroidery. A sari with an elaborately embroidered ‘pallu’ (end sash) featuring a peacock amongst flowers and ending in peacock feather appliqués, won audience appreciation.
The bridal outfits combined heavily encrusted lehenga-cholis with veils of burnt Sienna orange, moving away from the conventional red seen on the Indian bride.
The 18-piece collection with its royal colours and metallic embroidery provided material for a wardrobe 'fit for a queen'.
