Bridal Fashion from The Delhi Couture Week

The PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2013, was a unique platform for designers to showcase their collection and for couture lovers to have a look at an inspiring range of designer wear from famous Indian designer labels. While the fashion week had a lot many designers, nine to be specific, displaying their collection on the ramp, each had something different to say.

The ramp was full of drama, gorgeous ethnic designs and heavy on bridal couture. Talking about gorgeous ethnic designs, famous Indian designers Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra had simplistic yet grand bridal collections. Both the designers have a distinctly different style, one is known for his fashionable ethnic wear like designer salwar kameez for Bollywood divas and the other is famous for creating elegance in the form of striking designer sarees and oodles of it at that. What struck the right chord was the glamour and elegance in their respective designs.

Both designers displayed a lot of amazing Indian bridal fashion looks so it's hard to pick a favorite. However, here are a few designs from their collection which I loved - 

1. These spectacular creations by Manish Malhotra in the season's favorite hot orange color.

2. Backless and low neck designs coupled with traditional, regal fabrics like this one.

3. As I mentioned, the designs were heavy on embroidery. Here's the gorgeous creation worn by showstopper Deepika Padukone.

4. And now, coming to the designer whose designs exude and enhance femininity - Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Here is an absolutely stunning and very vintage lehenga with a long backless choli (blouse)

5. There was a lot of shimmer and shine on the ramp with the designer's couture collection. Here's a beautiful blend of traditional and contemporary style in the form of a fitted ensemble

6. Another thing I love is layers! Here is a lovely creation with lots of them!

Over all, the designs were a great delight to watch and truly inspiring! The couture week, with all its unique elements established that Indian bridal wear is not all about reds and gold, and in no way is it monotonous.
