When a bridal collection is called “To Die For”, it has to be the most desired item on every bridal couple’s fashion list.
For Fall/Winter 2013/14 Shantanu and Nikhil unveiled their collection inspired by the Renaissance period in a modern Avataar at the fifth Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013.
Stark black raised squares dotted the ramp, while the recessed frames lined the stage to create an abstract but glamorous bridal ambience.
The beauty of the human body is discovered once again in all its splendor of understated opulence, luxury and elegance. Ornamented surface details of divine gold cutting uniformly across the collection, strongly reflects the controlled fashion mannerisms of the new-age bride.
The collection emphasizes on ‘New Luxury’, which would, by contrast, be declared virtuous. Sharply constructed silhouettes, measured material innovation and humble layering could be identified with a republican spirit, civil sociability, and politeness. The appearance of gold leaf & booti patterns, meanwhile create a softer and more delicate style, thereby portraying women as distinctly feminine. Gold, in its different shades, would be the new black and hence indicating a sumptuous color restraint, while still reinforcing the message of vintage decadence.
Designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil say, “Since we are known for our contemporary couture lines for the modern Indian bride, Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week automatically becomes an appropriate platform to showcase our Fall Winter 2013 collection.”
