Studio Saks presented the bridal collection of design duo Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor at a fashion show

Sudio Saks unveiled Anjali and Arjun Kapoor's bridal and luxury prêt lines recently at a fashion show at The Park. The bridal collection was a heady, dazzling and slightly overdone mix of the traditional sari and ghagra and the West-inspired structure and silhouette. Heavily embellished with zari, sequins, crystals, corals and turquoise, fashioned into rich swirling leafy patterns, curving stripes and Victorian rosettes, the bridal collection exemplified the flamboyance which now characterises the Indian bride's trousseau. Along with bridal finery, salwar kurtas, saris and Western dresses too were presented, many extravagantly embellished. Obviously, the designer duo does not believe in minimalism. For "less is definitely a bore".If the Kapoor line spelt glamour, it also highlighted the karigari of zari and zardozi artisans, embroidery skills and the jewellers' art of using turquoise, coral, jade and pearls on fabrics. Some of the outfits such as an angrakha-inspired bridal lehenga had the look of royal ensembles. The bridal dupattas were gorgeous while the saris reflected Oriental splendour. The layered chiffon dresses were elegant. In perfect sync with the couture line was Shoba Asar's jewellery. The stunning pieces combined traditional jewellery-making skills with modern formats. The neckpieces and earrings used uncut diamonds and an array of precious stones. Vault Salon also showcased some interesting hairdos during the show.The outfits are on display at Studio Saks, Padmavathi Road, Gopalapuram.PUSHPA CHARI
