New Delhi, Nov 16 : Bridal opulence ruled the ramp as designer Varun Bahl put up a splendid show of his bridal wear collection at New Delhi on Saturday.
Bahl's collection was part of the 'Chivas in Fashion Tour '08'.
Traditional and ethnic was the order of the day as models sashayed the ramp in richly embellished and heavily embroidered outfits in colours of gold, maroon, orange, red.
Saris, lehengas, suits, all traditional Indian outfits worn by a bride stole the show with their sheer magnificence.
Bahl designed the collection keeping in mind the bridal season, which is on in full swing in India.
"I showcased my Indian collection keeping in mind the current the mood of the season it's a festive season, bridal season. So I showcased my bridal collection today. It is something which the people need right now and want to see," said Bahl.
Meanwhile, in complete contrast was designer Wendell Rodrick's collection 'Romantica' which stood out for its minimalism and simplicity.
Feminine dresses in white and pastel colours set the ramp on fire with their light and fluid look.
"My collection was called 'Romantica'. Very light, very minimal, very fluid and our trademark is simplicity. We wanted to give a collection that was pure and clean, without any embroidery," said Rodricks.
As a part of the Chivas tour 15 prominent Indian designers will travel to five different cities to showcase their creations.
Chivas Fashion Tour 2008 will culminate with a grand finale, which will be held in Dubai on November 22.
