THE WHITE WEDDING IS HERE
If you were always afraid of ditching colour on your wedding, Day 3 of India Couture Week will infuse some white confidence
Gone are the days of brides swearing by plum reds and maroons for their wedding. Don’t believe us? Well, the Capital runways are a proof.
On Day 3 of India Couture Week 2016, four designers showcased distinct collections, but, pristine whites, indulgent creams and dewy hues stood out. At
Rahul Mishra, hand-done embroidery wove a tale of monsoon-inspired motifs including chintz florals and beautifully crafted peacocks. Having never been a big fan
of colour, Mishra continued to take his white baton forward with creams, ivories, delicate golds along with indigos and blacks for contrast. Scared of whites? Reynu
Taandon and Rimple &
Harpreet Narula have a way out. Sometimes, it’s hard to break out of the colour mould. So, if you are afraid of ditching bright shades completely, go for versions of gold. Taandon and the Narulas picked the classic combination of white and gold, along with tan beiges and dull creams for not only their brides, but, grooms too.
From the red carpet to your pre-wedding soirees, an intricately detailed white lehenga can never go wrong. Mix and match or when you’re feeling moody, colour block to change it up. Also, jewellery can play a big part in how you complete a look. Why not go for gilded pieces to offset the whites and mild ochres of your weddingwear? Time to experiment, guys!
