Delhi Couture Week 2012 - Day 1

The onset of the most exuberant times of the Indian calendar has begun with the first show of Delhi Couture Week 2012 by designer Varun Bahl. Net bodices, lehengas & shararas, exquisite embroidery all this and much more adorned the ramps with the models dressed in his outfits. Blacks, olives, navy blues and shades of red were the predominant colors in the collection. With this collection the designer definitely wanted to change the idea of Indian couture to be vastly bridal wear oriented.

Here are a few of the best outfits.

The second show was by JJ Vallaya whose collection stressed on the fact that Indian couture is definitely bridal. Inspired by the ottoman empire, the silhouettes and the embroidery made a very unique statement.

I personally loved the concepts of net bodices with lehengas and jackets with lehengas.

What did you think of the non-bridal concept of Varun Bahl's show?
