If you are a bride-to-be who means business when she talks about her perfect wedding outfit or reception attire, then you had to be there on the third day of the Pearls Delhi Couture Week. Sabya on day one, Rohit on day two and now Pallavi Jaikishan and Manav Gangwani on day three – this event is just getting better by the day. Both designers showcased their glitzy yet not in-your-face bling collections in their respective shows. In a nutshell, day three was full of glamour, celeb quotient and of course, some very good couture.
Manav Gangwani’s clothes are far from ordinary. In yesterday’s show, he showcased Indian as well as Western outfits; his collection was rightly labelled “An Affair to Remember”. Models were seen strutting their stuff in grandiose ball gowns in red, blue, and other vivid colours. The big hair embellished with bizarre yet chic hair pieces made the show look extraordinary. The styling in particular was amazing and flawless. His Indian clothes had everything from lehengas, to sarees to salwar kameez – again with fantastic detailing, Swarovski elements and a very appealing colour palette. Though some of the Western clothes weren’t really wearable, they somehow completed the show.
Manav’s popularity in Bollywood was evident in his show. Dia Mirza, Zayed Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Aftab Shivdasani, Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan were all seen cheering their friend from the audience. Though conventional women will find Manav’s clothes too loud, his target audience consists more of women who are not scared of experimenting and those who are more than willing to put elements of their bold personality in the clothes they don. So if after reading this, your inner princess is coming to the fore, then Manav is the man for you!
Classic, colourful and rich – these are the best words to describe acclaimed designer Pallavi Jaikishan’s collection on day three. The evening sarees stole the show hands down. Be it bright orange with a gold blouse or an amazingly styled black saree with a big border, you can start feeling feminine and sexy simply by looking at Pallavi’s clothes.
Sporting a Pallavi Jaikishan outfit for your Indian wedding or reception can ensure endless compliments coming your way. She understands and depicts something so special in her bridal clothes, which no designer can ever replicate.
Halfway through this six day event, it is no surprise that Pearls Delhi Couture Week is going to be a much spoken about event, long after it’s over!
