As wedding season kicks into full gear, we can’t help but look to top designers for inspiration on how to style unique and chic looks for upcoming functions and weddings. At this year’s India Couture Week 2017, we saw some of the most intricate and ornate looks take center stage on the runway.
Tharun Tahiliani: A Couture Fairytale
Ensemble designer Tarun Tahliani is known for his feminine lenghas and soft color palettes. This couture week, Tahliani turned feminine into fairtytale to make for a light and airy series of blush-toned pieces.
A note to take for all fashionistas, sticking to blush tones allows you to build on accessories or in the case of couture week, the jewels. On the left, we see a draped off the shoulder neck lengha and on the right, a gorgeous A-line fit with an adorned dupatta.
Anita Dongre: Opulence and Elegance
Designer Anita Dongre channeled her childhood memories of Rajasthan to conceptualize a very organic yet bold bridal collection. The fresh oranges, yellow golds and traditional fits give the overall collection a regal, opulent and elegant overall look.
A tip for round-the-corner brides, if you purchase designer formal wear for your wedding, consider opting for the more traditional fits and altering the look based on more subtle modern elements, as Dongre styles in her couture week collection.
Rohit Bal: Deep Tones and Deeper Details
New Dehli designer and previous IFA Designer of the Year Rohit bal knows how to take dark tones and turn them into a rich, festive ensemble. This couture week, Bal stepped up the deep tones with a Spanish matador inspired collection, complete with capes and rose patterns.
The collection holds a sense of authority and depth over some of the more feminine couture lines, a perfect source of inspiration for a fashionista who isn't afraid to dig deep and take a risk.
Anju Modi: Whimsical Color Palette Layering
A DCXAsra designer favorite, Anju Modi played up the freshest and most floral organic color combinations during our couture presentation.
ne notable element across all of Anju Modi’s most recent looks, including that of actress and featured model Dia Mirza, is the concept of layering and belting upon the pieces. This is especially important to note if you tend to wear softer or brighter colors, since it adds structure and dimension to your formal ensembles.
Anju Modi and other designers from India’s bustling formalwear scene are soon to hit the DCXAsra shop.
