Designer Ritu Beri brought a strong Punjabi flavour at the fourth edition of PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2013 on Saturday as she displayed her "over the top" collection inspired by Punjab.

Excessively expressive and dramatic collection named 'Punjabi Rock & Roll' was a blend of ghagras, Patiala salwars, choga like jackets, and sari inspired gowns. High collars, ruffles and Swarovski work in metallic, black, white and more were highlights of her couture line, showcased on the fourth day of the fashion week.

"It was over the top, but that's what couture is all about. You have to go crazy. But the whole idea was you could wear the jacket with a pair of jeans, a skirt with body suit or plain white shirt so there was experimentation, but it was quite wearable," Beri told reporters.

Silk, velvet, rich brocades, satins and nets looked even more beautiful due to embroidery work done on the pieces.

Ace designer Manish Arora also showcased his collection on the same day. His collection included traditional Indian outfits like kurtas, churidars, lehengas, bandhgalas, anarkalis and saris, created using fabrics like silk, crepe, georgette, chiffon and handwoven silk brocade from Varanasi.

“I have taken inspiration from the Buddhist temples, the baroque period and Indian jewellery which I had also showcased in Paris for my Summer-spring 2013 collection. I am also lending a few looks from the Paris collection. Apart from that, it's all Indian bridal wear,” Arora said.

“Digital Prints have been developed and worked upon with surface textures. Each garment has been handcrafted with the use of enameled stones, faux, leather, metals, sequins, zardozi and crystals,” he added.
