Sizzling Best From Indian Couture Week 2017

Hina Ilyas     01 Aug 2017

The Indian Couture week is back with the same grandeur and glamour! The top names from the Indian fashion industry kick started this seven day affair which swayed the fashion enthusiasts till the 30th of July.

So far we are already captivated by what the fashion maestros showcased, but there are certain looks which have outdone the rest. Traditional bridal couture being our muse, we planned to share some of our favorites looks here.

Anamika Khanna Khan’s "Happily Ever After"

Anamika Khanna showcased her installation of the new collection “Happily ever after” and oh what a treat of pastels, ivory, and delicate embroidery it is. Her curation involves minimalistic yet classy prints, use of metallic, zardosi, thread work, and regal fabric like tissue and satin. Her collection is romantic, ethereal, and contemporary since she experimented with border shapes quite elegantly! The pastel lime outfit with burnished gold gharara has to be our favorite here!

Manav Gangwani

It’s always pleasant to see designers experimenting with hues and silhouettes so amazingly well. Out of Gangwani’s collection, this black crop top with lehnga was a starrer featuring Lucknowai chiankari and Rajasthani embroidery. The delicate gold threadwork on velvet is an absolutely edgy take on the conventional Indian elements. Black certainly is the new “happy”!

Reynu Taandon’s “Cyaan”

When it comes to stellar silhouettes and seamless design, Reynu Taandon’s “Cyaan” is absolutely lovely. This alluring sapphire top and gold printed lehnga gives all the feel of a colorful festive evening--which a South Asian wedding is supposed to be. This collection specially caught our attention for its dazzling gold print complimenting the soothing cobalt hues. A real eye candy!

Tarun Tahiliani

Tarun integrated the traditional Indian sari style with lehnga and gharara in the collection. The two looks that caught our eyes were ivory pink sari and pastel pink peplum styled lehnga. Both of these ensembles are elegantly put together in romantic hues, beads work, shimmery block printing, and embossed embroidered patterns. Pastels are rightfully rocking this year’s ICW!

Another Tarun Tahiliani gown that we have picked appears to have come right out of a fairy tale! One of the elegantly creative designs smartly fuses the western ball gown style with modern pearls and embroidered sequences. A go to pick for wedding reception event certainly!

Shyamalbhumika

Another black worth going head over heels for! Beige sitara work gown and floral embroidered black lehnga has an air of a modern wedding wear. We love how Shyamal and Bhumika infused the ethereal deep neck and bell border to turn the silhouettes seductively dramatic!

Our next pick is also by Shyamal and Bhumika which is quite unlike the former ensemble. The modern Victorian off shoulder is absolutely chic balanced by the heavy traditional lehnga. This is what we call bridal couture fusion at its best!

Rohit Bal

Rohit doesn’t like to play safe and we thank the God’s of Couture for this! These unconventional wedding looks came as a surprise in the midst of very traditional showcases recently. The monochromatic silhouettes coupled with lehnga and lush floral headdresses are inspired by mughal ensembles.
