The collection "MELA" is a perfect amalgamation of fun and vibrant tones, ethnic cuts and exuberant styles depicting the festive celebration with its perfect sense of enthusiasm and excitement.
The Royal Raj by Emraan Rajput:
Emraan Rajput presents "The Royal Raj". With his new collection he aims to bring the royalty back in bridal menswear. The collection is an embodiment of eastern luxury featuring motifs from the Mughal Era. Emraan Rajput has tapped into the royal history of the sub-continent and brought back the silhouette that compliments the royal event that a wedding is supposed to be. The Emraan Rajput groom exudes luxury but at the same time sticks to his eastern roots, so the result is a representation of the eastern aesthetic at its best.
Aisha Imran:The collection for BCW is unique down to the smallest details from an electric mix of handicraft lehngas, ghararas and full gowns to eastern silhouettes that truly represent our culture and eastern traditions. The palette is inspired by the festive colours to adhere to all sorts of aesthetic needs of potential consumers."My work celebrates a woman’s grace and persona offering premium, stylish and on trend options for every occasion and lifestyle"
Lavender fields by Asifa & Nabeel:Asifa & Nabeel’s Collection named “Lavender fields” draws inspiration from the beautiful lavender, tracing it from John Knight’s poem. The collection showcases the romance of pale bluish-purple hue and the fragile slender form of lavendula.
Ceremony Collection by Amir Adnan:Representing threads of history and monarchy, Amir Adnan is showcasing his “Ceremony Collection” at Bridal Couture Week 2016. The collection encapsulates statement jackets and sherwanis paired with Jodhpur-eque pajamas and gathered, tucked and rumpled luxurious shalwars. The collection is a tasteful ode to classical tailoring and royal romance that is communicated through its bright game of tones. Amir Adnan's collection is sure to set the stage ablaze with extravagant yet trendy pieces made with intricate gold embroidery and bold baroque style."
