See all the highlights from day 2 of India Bridal Fashion Week 2013
The high-on-bling decor and ambience brought alive the feel of the 'big fat Indian wedding' on Day 2.
Actress Jacqueline Fernandez sashayed down the ramp in an asymmetrical golden embroidered magenta jacket with ankle length fitted pants by designer Jyotsna Tiwari at the ongoing India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW). She completed the modern bridal look with a wavy hairdo and no jewellery.
"I am happy that Jyotsna tried something different and gave the bride full space to experiment. Her style is elegant and at the same time, stylish," Jacqueline said.
Jyotsna's collection was inspired by colours, fun and festivities around the wedding, justifying her use of a riot of bright colours on the ramp.
Singer-actress Sophie Choudry's face reflected the glow of a newly-married girl when she walked the ramp as a showstopper for designer Rina Dhaka.
Sophie flaunted an orange and green bridal lehenga teamed with a strapless multi-coloured blouse. The bridal look was completed with a beige light dupatta draped over the head as a pallu.
"I am in love with Rina's designs and she makes every women look ravishing and elegant in her collection. This is the reason why I'm here to walk for her," the 32-year-old said after the show.
Actors Prateik Babbar and Amyra Dastur, the lead couple of upcoming romantic flick 'Issaq', also took to the ramp to flaunt a black velvet sherwani and an ornate sharara respectively.
Dhaka is best known for her theme collections and her forte remains western wear. But at the IBFW ramp, she presented creations which every bride would want in her closet.
The third designer of the day, Meera Ali, showcased her latest bridal line titled "Pearl of the Orient" under her label, House of Kotwara, a joint venture with husband and filmmaker Muzaffar Ali.
The collection comprised exotic bridal wear gently textured with pearls on oriental forms. From lehengas and shararas to saris and choghas, the clothing on display depicted, in microcosm, the glory of Awadh. The clothes were also embellished with zardozi and chikan techniques that added elegance to the entire range. The palate ranged from soft pastels to vibrant hues.
Sharing the uniqueness of this collection, Meera said: "This time, we are focusing on a lot of pearl. This is the first time that we have used pearls on our bridal line."
