Delhi Couture Week...Day 4 & 5

A flamboyant start to Day 4 of Delhi Couture Week was presented by designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil with their collection 'She is the One'

The collection comprised of extravagant lehengas, backless tops & saris in subdued colors using handloom silk, french lace, net with silks, brocades and embroidery work. Although the colors for the collection were majorly pastels, charcoal black with blood red was also seen. The overall look was kept in tune with the concept by keeping big hair with bigger eyes!

Next in line was Manish Malhotra with his bridal couture. Paying tribute to the 50's, his collection had a lot of shararas and gararas in colors like corals and pinks. A lot of detailing in terms of embroidery was used.

The final day of Delhi Couture Week started off with Manav Gangwani's Royal Affaire, a collection of cocktail dresses and gowns in colors like black, blues, whites to reds.

The grand finale by Sabyasachi Mukherjee was just the right ending that this event needed. His collection is named the New Moon, where he has used crafts from all around the world, from Russian needle point to Zardozi from Agra to Toile De Joy from France using fabrics like Daccai muslin, silks, nets, tulle and velvet.

What would you pick from among these brilliantly crafted designs?
