On Top Fashion Gear with Avnni Kapur

Well, truthfully you can’t ever really have an overdoze of weddings considering quite a few celebs got married lately but fact is that the wedding season is on and the charm and beauty of a bride or the excitement of the groom are sights which seldom go out of demand so to say.

Weddings are beautiful, no matter how simple or lavish they maybe- weddings are just beautiful. And the most talked about are the brides at these weddings (sorry guys but guess you know it too). Also, we reckon the looks for the pre-wedding day celebrations are rather important as they let you truly experience and create a build-up to the big day!

So, since it is the wedding season and we want our brides to look their gorgeous selves- we got talking with one of our favourite designers from Delhi. Well, not that she just has a youthful take on design herself but her clothes are unique, colourful and playful. And I must add that every time I visit Avnni Kapur’s store- I am always pleasantly surprised by something or the other for the pieces wouldn’t be very routine.

When asked about the Mehendi celebrations, she said, “A trend that is hitting this season for Mehendi is the mid-length skirt and crop top which is comfortable and allows the wearer to show their beautiful Mehendi designs. What is more is that it is practical and very easy to carry. People are also trying to experiment with more vivid and vibrant colours, therefore no greens.” Further commenting on the hues for Mehendi, the designer said that to feel and look different, she would recommend trying colours like lilac, shades and tints of bright blues, or maybe even corals.

And with the hits, you also got to know the other side. Avnni said,” A complete no-no for Mehendi will be over-accessorizing with Jewellery, a little bling is what is needed but do not go overboard with it. Also, a no-no to Churidars please.”

And no such celebrations are going to be complete without the bride’s squad. Yes, we are talking about our bridesmaids. Avnni suggested, “The bridesmaids can always opt for something simpler like dhotis, crop-tops and skirts or maybe a jacket with cigarette pants and can have that element of co-ordination with matching dupattas, maang tikkas or even same colour skirts.”

And the most action-packed function has to be the Cocktail night! The designer said,”The brides of today are keen on having an Indo-western look for their Cocktail with stylish cuts. They also prefer unique drapes, unconventional tops or even long capes. Keeping it traditional yet modern is the way for the brides of 2018-19.” We do agree with our ace designer, don’t we?

IBFW Day 3- Raghavendra Rathore

For many who missed Raghavendra Rathore’s creations on the ramp would have rejoiced as he made a comeback after four long years.  His work this time around reflected quite a futuristic approach as he showcased future bridal wear highlighting the concept of people traveling across the globe for a wedding.
 
When it is Raghuvendra, everything has to be royal and classy.This collection also drew its inspiration from traditional silhouettes across Asia. 
 
When a veteran is participating, there is much buzz to see their patent styles.He showcased his trademark jodhpuri bundgala jackets, not only as a part of men’s collection but also was inspired by the same to present the bolero bandgala and sari bandhgala in his women’s collection.
 
The men’s wear was rather attractive and dapper encompassing velvet coats in the hues of red and green with pocket squares, men suits in all vibrant colours like pink, purple, navy blue, red, turquoise blue, and not to forget the silk blue suit with bandhgala with a complementing hot pink pocket square. Sigh! Thank God, we saw minimum of the mundane shades of grey, black and brown . 
 
The women’s range showed a plentiful of eye-catching details whether in  frilled gowns, long robe like embroidered jackets or shrugs in velvet.
 
At closure, Anil Kapoor  took everyone by surprise with his sleeveless velvet jacket teamed up with a black kurta.
