Master Couturier Manish Malhotra opened the second digital edition of India Couture Week 2021 streamed on Fashion Design Council of India's (FDCI) official handles across social media platforms. The designer's bridal edit 'Nooraniyat', is a representation of his signature style — exquisite craftsmanship, larger-than-life glamour, and voluminous silhouettes.
One can't expect anything less than perfection from a Manish Malhotra production, and the couture film embodied everything the brand stands for. Lehengas in customary bridal reds dominated the collection, soft peaches and lustrous golds finished with Malhotra's preferred zardozi, badla and sequin embroideries added the glamour quotient. The couture film focused on brides across ages and regions sending an important message to his audience. The film captured many moods of a wholesome Indian wedding celebration and a bride who rather than playing demure, is seen enjoying her big day.
While the ensembles displayed the amalgamation of tradition and modernity beautifully, some designs may not fit the new-age bride. Now more than ever wedding fashion has taken a modern route with pastels and metallics, delicate detailing and practical silhouettes taking centrestage. (IANS)
