Check out the gallery for my favorite looks from AICW 2015!
Reynu Taandon – Collection ‘SHAHBANU’ revived the sartorial splendor of Persia and is an ode to
womanhood. It includes classic, traditional looks, showcasing different cultural influences.
Beautiful bridal wear!
Manav Gangwani – Le’amoureuse (the beloved) celebrates the sensuality of a woman. Mesmerizing,
contemporary looks, including this purple gown with lace details and sexy low v-neck. The top is
very Hollywood red carpet while the lace/embroidered skirt reminds me of the traditional
PRECIOSA Presents Rimple & Harpreet Narula – Actress Shilpa Shetty looks sexy and glamorous in this sparkly, gold
lehenga. A daring look, very Bollywood Bombshell! The collection Maharadjah & Co is inspired by the Indian Maharajas and
the nobles of that era and their lifestyle, which was heavily
influenced by their travels to the West. The collection is an ode to splendor and extravagance of
their lives well-lived.
Varun Bahl – One of my top favorites from AICW 2015, this floral design is the perfect combination
of East and West…Classic and modern!
Manish Malhotra – ‘The Empress Story’ collection includes beautiful East meets West designs. It is
a tribute to a self-confident and spirited woman. Each outfit in the collection is unique as it
spotlights Indian detailing on classic Western silhouettes.
