Satur­day was all about in­tri­cate em­broi­deries, ce­les­tial in­spi­ra­tion and cou­ture that goes beyond the wed­ding day and the bride

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

In­dian cou­ture is usu­ally ded­i­cated to what the bride wants, but, the penul­ti­mate day of In­dia Cou­ture Week 2017, catered to the en­tire wed­ding party, and to the many events that pre­cede the D-day.

Or­gan­ised by Fashion De­sign Coun­cil of In­dia with as­so­ciate part­ner Hin­dus­tan Times, day six saw two dis­tinct style sen­si­bil­i­ties. The evening started with de­signer Anita Dongre’s show where mod­els walked to the soul­ful voice of sufi singer Deveshi Sah­gal. Not only lehen­gas, but even tea-length dresses saw got­ta­p­atti work, em­broi­deries done by craftswomen of SEWA and wo­ven tex­tiles from Be­naras. Her show­stop­pers were the bride, her brides­maids and flower girls — ush­er­ing in the con­cept of cou­ture for the en­tire bridal party.

De­signer Gau­rav Gupta ended the day with sig­na­ture fan­tas­ti­cal cou­ture. “The de­signs are an amal­ga­ma­tion of In­dian crafts­man­ship and Euro­pean de­signs, in­spired by na­ture, for­est and a fan­tasy space, al­most like a par­al­lel world on the moon.” he said. Ac­tor Aditi Rao Hydari walked as Gupta’s muse.

The bride and her besties, all in one par­tic­u­lar look, makes the wed­ding more special. This is the rea­son we played with the brides­maid con­cept ANITA DONGRE, DE­SIGNER We have used fabrics like crêpes, chif­fon and lots of lace that has all been cre­ated in-house, mak­ing the col­lec­tion pure cou­ture GAU­RAV GUPTA, DE­SIGNER
