New Delhi, Sep 30 (UNI) As the wedding season kickstarts this October, the pioneer in the bridal fair in India ''Bridal Asia'' is all set to unveil the wedding extravaganza in its tenth edition.

The three-day wedding fair will begin from October 16 here.

In a preview to celebrate the occasion, collections for the wedding season by some of the key participants were showcased at the Grand.

The fair will have the best of exclusive designer bridal wear, semi-formal and pret ensembles, sarees, accessories, jewellery and lifestyle products from the Asian sub-continent, all showcased under one roof.

The USP of the forthcoming show, Bridal Asia CEO Divya Gurwara said, would be the ''upbeat trousseau'' presented by the designers, especially created for the ''young and chic brides''.

''Our designers have experimented a lot by mixing the concept of classic Indian bride with new trends,'' she said.

Besides a flamboyant couture, the fair promises to provide the buyers with a varied range of exquisite jewellery, accessories and bridal gifts.

The preview got a sneak peek into the newest collection of Ara by designer Riddhima Kapoor, daughter of actors Rishi and Neetu Kapoor, and Devyani Bajoria.

Talking about her bridal range, Ms Kapoor said, ''This year we have kept our bridal trousseau very basic which makes the entire range wearable.'' The colour pallette varies from brightest reds to pastel shades and black in sync with the free flowing fabrics like georgettes, lycra, chiffons among other fabrics.

The collection further emphasises on the revival of the traditional Indian embroidery with gota work, mukaesh and sequence designs taking the limelight.

The other designers who presented their collection were Bhairavi Jaikishan and Nalandda Bhandari.

Their collection reflected a perfect melange of modern silhouettes and old world charm with colour pallettes ranging from classic ivory, peach, saffron, sunset yellow to various shades of pink and red.

Calling her collection ''minimalist and simple yet beautiful,'' Ms Bhandari caught the eye with her tunic tops and yellow evening dresses.

Balancing the minimalist look promoted by the designers, jewellery and accessory designer Malini Agarwalla's Malaga conquered the preview with her stunning collection of precious stones studded belts and bags.

''Malaga specialises in handcrafted bags, belts, footwear and fashion jewellery with rich embellishments of jewelled pieces, embroidery, beadwork and zardozi,''she said.
