Suneet Varma

The sixth edition of BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014 in association with AZVA at DLF Emporio, New Delhi on day 3 saw a captivating collection by the enigmatic designer Suneet Verma and presented by BMW..

The arena began to fill up with a bevy of A-list designers lending support in the front row (Spotted Rohit Bal, JJ Valaya and Jyotsna Tiwari & Marc Robinson watching the show intently).

What followed was Indian wear with some oriental influences – it began with the set resembling an Ancient, two storeyed Indian temple with an oriental touch .

For his Bridal Week collection, Suneet Varma sought inspiration in Shekhawati – a region in Rajasthan famous for its hand-painted architecture. Shekhawati, one of the oldest and most beautiful hand painted living cities in the world with a rich history of over 350 years of architecture, decoration and sheer magnificence was the inspiration behind the collection.

In true Rajasthani style, the clothes featured mirror-work and a vibrant palette of red and fuchsia in traditional and contemporary silhouettes traditional Indian with a modern twist. There were Ethnic lehengas, anarkalis and very modern palazzo pants and kurtas with thigh-high slits. The designer used aari embroidery and gold and copper threadwork on a collection that started out in bright and bold shades, but was toned down to rich creams and stark navy as the show progressed.

It started with some anarkalis and lehengas with mirror work detailing, moving on to graphic striped fabrics used in blouses as a contrast against soft, chantilly lace sarees and finally on to signature bridal lehengas in candy colors- pinks, yellow, corals.

The collection also had hand made accessories in beaten metallic golds in exaggerated earrings and hair pins.

The headgear most of all- those gold spikes with attachments coming on the side were so pretty. Suneet-Varma-bmw-india-bridal-fashion-week-pushpendragautam-pics-event-photographer-india
