Day 1 started with master couturier Manish Malhotra unveiling his traditional bridal collection ‘Nooraniyat – The Bridal Edition’.
The collection features an enchanting medley of traditional bridal colours in sacred reds, plush peaches and scintillating golden. The range has his signature trails, sheer veils and layered drapes with zardozi work and sequins.

Known for his flamboyant yet quirky designs, designer Siddartha Tytler made his debut as a couturier this year. He opened day 2 of the digital showcase with his exquisite collection ‘Ambrosia’. The colour palette was heavily dominated by ivory and shades of gold while the gorgeous silhouettes complemented the theatrical shapes and voluminous ruffles. The collection comprises gorgeous anarkalis, lehengas, sherwanis with gigantic skirts and ruffled dupattas.

Suneet Varma’s collection ‘Noor’ was, both, bold and striking, screaming maximalism. The collection is coloured in beautiful pastels shades of mint, ice-blue and yellow, with tone-on-tone embroidery in delicate glass beads, crystals, and threadwork. The flowy silhouettes with off-shoulder necklines, deeply scalloped backs, tassel detailing and soft tulles make for a sensual yet modest bride. The groom wears easy, pastel-coloured sherwanis with thread embroidery and modern hemlines.

Designer Gaurav Gupta’s collections are always conversation starters that emotionally move his audience. His collection ‘Name is Love’ bedazzles you at first glance. It leaves you star-struck yet not failing to find the equilibrium to evoke conversations about gender fluidity, boundaries, identities and sexualities. You could find concept lehenga sculpted in cosmic grey, embellished with sprinkles of shaded glass, a hybrid Indian gown with a large multi-layered skirt, a violet gown with fan-like structures.
The menswear comes in stark black and white, night teal and blue colours with sharp metallic accents, grand tuxedos and exaggerated flared trousers.
