The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) presented its coveted annual fashion event, 'India Couture Week 2014' (#ICW2014) presented by Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers in New Delhi a few weeks ago. The six day fashion event is synonymous with luxury and invites the country's top couture designers to present their collections. Sabyasachi presented his exquisite 'Opium' collection at this event last year (previously called Delhi Couture Week) so this really is the bridal fashion event of the year to look out for.
This year each of the 10 designers raised the bar higher, presenting breathtaking collections - each inspiring, unique, innovative and pushing the boundaries on what is possible in Indian couture. There were beautiful fabrics, gorgeous silhouettes and stunning colour palettes that will see a step change in Indian bridal wear.
With so many trends to note, we will be discussing our top picks in Bridal Wear, Groomn Wear, Jewellery and Makeup in a four-part series - starting with Bridal Wear in this article. Along with our notes, we have aso included excerpts from Harpers Bazaar India Bride June 2014 issue. They did a lovely piece on each of these designers' new bridal collections and where they drew inspiration from. Knowing the creative process behind bringing a collection to life makes it infintely more enjoyable as a work of art. Enjoy!
