‘Indian Fashion Police’ has been reviewing the Bridal Couture weeks held since the past month………IFP picks up it’s favourite designer collection and thinks these designers have set new benchmark for this year’s bridal fashion. First on IFP’s list is the ‘Kotwara’ collection by Meera & Muzzafar Ali which oozed with loads of royalty. They have kept the nawabi tradition alive through their work…………as for me I am in awe of their superb work. Here is a look at their collection displayed at India Bridal Week 2013.

After a pleasant Day 1 of Delhi Couture Week, Day 2 had showcasing from designers like Meera & Muzaffar Ali, Manav Gangwani and Suneet Varma.Here is your look at what each designer had in store for us:
Suneet Varma’s recent collection inspired by ‘Kamasutra’ had loads bright festive colours…….bright reds, tangy orange, lemony yellows, midnight blacks……….the collection is most suited for the bride in search of her perfect wedding outfit. The detail work was very eye-catching…….but I am not a fan of the net used in this collection………..I feel that net is kinda off on it’s way out fashion-wise. Drapes inform of Lehengas, Anarkalis, Sarees formed this collection. My opinion would be that women can definitely look forward to Suneet Varma’s collection in next bridal season…………it will surely feature on my list of ‘Bridal Couture 2012’.

Meera & Muzaffar Ali
Meera & Muzaffar Ali who are known for their ‘vintage touch’ to Indian outfits, presented their recent collection ‘Sama’ which did have a very earthy feel to it. The collection is named after their young daughter, had a variety of outfits which included western wear, scarves, sarees, anarkalis, lehengas………..Muzaffar Ali’s paintings were replicated on fabrics, something which I address extremely unique and fabulous. ‘Awadhi’ grace reflected in every silhouette of their creations……Though the designer duo has tried to go western with this collection, it the Indian designs which I still prefer. The Culottes style pants were unique on the runway this time around………..their collection was different butin a pleasant way.
IFP had already shown you a preview of Manav Gangwani’s upcoming collection ‘Timeless Affaire’ ………I would call this collection ‘Out of this world’ seeing the way Manav had beautifully combined the Indian drapes with contemporary designs. Heavy sequin & crystal detail work with lace were the highlight of this collection, but the styling of models is what left me speechless. Inspired by Time, Space and Zodiac, I found this collection unique as well as futuristic. Loved the way the drapes were used in form of skirts, fish tails and gowns. I liked this one better than Manav’s earlier collection………this was Couture indeed.
