New Delhi, Sep 28: It will be a shimmering wedding wear this time round, with look more western but embroidery Indian. ''Low back blouse will be the flavour of this wedding season, and the bridal wear will have lots and lots of embroidery,'' says fashion designer Falguni of the Falguni and Shane Peacock fame.
As for the colours, she says red and gold will always be in trend, and there will be a mix of red and green too. ''Women now a days don't want just plain colours, they want different colour patterns,'' Falguni told the sources during the Bridal Asia 2008 preview this weekend. ''So, one has to innovate with colours each time,'' she adds. Models shimmered in the wedding wear and jewellery like stars on a glittering night as they displayed the peacock label and the creations of Raghavendra Rathore, Pallavi Jaikishan and Mehrasons jewellers in a sneek preview of the event to be held here from Oct 7-9. The Raghavendra Rathore collection was a shinning Shervani with lavish spread of golden embroidery. Pallavi, whose signature style is pearl embroidery, says she uses light garments which are strong and do not get tarnished for a long time.
It will be Bridal Asia's tenth year, bringing leading couturiers, wedding planners, lifestyle designers and jewellery design houses under one roof.
''There will be a new look this time, with more young designers showcasing their labels,'' says Divya Gurware of Bridal Asia.
