Actress Alia Bhatt made her ramp debut with the India Bridal Fashion Week. She dazzled in a fitted gold gown and presented the luxury jewellery brand Azva's new bridal collection that is inspired from the saat pheras.

The range consisted of neckpieces, bracelets, armlets, tiaras and bangles handcrafted with the idea of seven in it.

"This is the first time I am walking the ramp and I am lucky to be a showstopper for the brand. I could not have asked for more than walking the ramp wearing exquisite gold bridal jewellery.

I was nervous and had the biggest fear that I will probably fall but my stars have been kind to me today and I didn't," she added.

With actress Lisa Haydon as a showstopper and a collection featuring Indian drapes in dramatic forms, ace designer Tarun Tahiliani brought the curtains down on the first Delhi edition of IBFW in style.

Lisa, 27, began the show as a contemporary Indian bride in a shimmery gown which had a veil and later opted for a white lehenga with her face partially covered by a net dupatta (scarf).

"Half of her (Lisa) face was covered just to show the shy and coy nature of a bride and to also show that she is modern. I have used Indian drapes in various forms because our age-old Indian clothes are all about draping," Tarun said.

His collection was divided in three sections - The Gold Collection, Enchanted Forest and Man of the Hour.

The gold collection introduced gold as the new shade of the season. It mostly had drape gowns and sarees with pallu highlighting the Indian sensibilities. In the second section, Tarun reinvented the sarees with belts, cape and bustiers in hues of pink, ivory, beige and red.

The man of the hour section saw draped dhotis out of kanjeevaram sarees. They were teamed with intricate sherwanis and bandhgala.

"I am a fan of his collection and want something light and at the same time traditional for my wedding too," said Lisa.

Tarun also introduced kids' bridal wear in the form of bright coloured lehenga with blingy headgears. They were used as bridesmaid on the ramp.
