So I was racking my brain thinking – what should WGA do for Deepavali?! While having a brainstorming sesh with our editor Evanna last month, we thought we’d recap on our fave Indian Weddings (Aishwarya Rai, Vanisha Mittal, Liz Hurley etc) but then again that’s all kinda ‘old’ news. Then I had the bright idea (well, I seem to think so!) to showcase designer saris.
And what better source is there then the fashion bible that rules above all, Vogue. And guess what? It just so happens that the November issue for Vogue India is all about the Sari..!
Great minds think alike? Haha, again, I’d ‘like’ to think so. Happy Deepavali everyone!
Aamby Valley India Bridal Week 2010: Neeta Lulla
Neeta Lulla is well-known in India as a fashion stylist and costume designer. She’s also one of the prominent names to showcase at the Aamby Valley India Bridal Week in 2010, making the frontpage of Vogue India’s portal. For this fashion week, Neeta designed a collection that was inspired by the Nawabi ambience. It is “Bollywood glamour at its best”. Using rich fabrics such as silk, tulle, brocade, lace & velvet, these saris are set to dazzle and are perfect for the traditional bride or pre-wedding events such as mehendi & sangeet.
Love the textures & cut of these saris. Not only are they fit for the bride, but her entourage and guests as well. After all, Indian weddings are colourful affairs and everyone gets to look their best.
Aamby Valley India Bridal Week 2010: Manish Malhotra
Having dressed many leading actresses in Bollywood and considered one of the top designers in India – Manish Malhotra definitely made an impression at the Aamby Valley India Fashion Week. His collection fulfilled its promise of glitz & glamour and used ruby anarkalis, brocade kurtas and velvet corsets. Manish is for the bride who appreciates delicate detailings and luxe fabrics that conjure the spirit of a Taj princess. More pics available at Vogue India.
