Ritu Kumar

Ritu Kumar in collaboration with Reliance Jewels showcased the latest designs for Label & her signature line ‘Ritu Kumar’. The ‘Label’ collection was inspired by the beautiful land of ‘Bhutan’ as the livid colours were a prominent feature. While Ritu’s Bridal collection was done up in softer colours & had abundance of lace work.

Kaftans, Anarkali, Lehenga, knee length dresses, pants, shirts and jackets were the styles in this collection. I do like the colourful outfits but felt the Indianwear required something more creative…….the designs felt too simple. The lace detail work is what we have witnessed in numerous other collection. I am all for the ‘Bhutan’ inspired outfits but unfortunately was looking out for something new in Bridalwear.

Rahul Mishra

How to create an exquisite collection from Indian handloom??? This is what Rahul Mishra does best every year when he introduces his new collection on the runway. This season was no different where Rahul Mishra created an entire collection out of Chanderi & Maheshwari weaves. Sarees, cholis, Palazzo pants, Jackets, Anarkalis were the main highlight of his collection.  Floral Motifs were the beautiful designs weaved into the fabric in golden & silver.

This collection was devoid of any heavy embellishment or embroidery while emphasis was given more on the drapes. The bright colours like rani pink, saffron, haldi yellow were stunning and very ‘Indian’. Love the fact that Rahul can make Indian weaves come to life in such a contemporary way. Love the outfits!!!
