The country's largest range of lehengas under one roof

NEW DELHI: CTC Plaza on Ring Road here on Friday unveiled an elaborate wedding collection giving prospective brides an opportunity to choose what they want to wear on D-Day.

The 10-day-long "Lehenga Festival" is showcasing a wide range of wedding apparel including lehengas, saris, suits, gowns and sherwanis for men.

A one-hour-long fashion show was held on Friday where models draped in shimmering lehengas and saris and traditional Indian sherwanis sashayed down the ramp. The lehengas in pure georgette and crape were embellished with swaroski, while saris in georgette had a contemporary look.

The CTC Plaza was specially illuminated and decked with colourful dress material for the occasion. Besides mehandiwalas, shahnaiwalas were also in attendance.

Ranging from traditional lehengas to saris and authentically styled sherwanis, the collection also displayed crafted embroidery and embellished art works. The dresses were embellished with Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and metal works.

Speaking about the ongoing festival, CTC Plaza Managing Director Vipin Chhabra said: "At the ramp, we had displayed both lehengas and saris because we want to offer all that women want to wear on the wedding day. Our lehengas start from Rs.5,000 and go up to Rs.50,000. We are offering colourful lehengas for the middle class as well as the upper end customers."

Keeping in mind that today's women have a fascination for modern-style dresses, the traditional collection was harmoniously blended with the contemporary cuts to showcase an impressive range of wedding apparels.

To provide the perfect wedding experience, CTC Plaza will offer free makeover for prospective brides. Stunningly crafted designs in zardozi with silhouettes of lehengas bearing eight to ten richly embroidered kalis are up for grabs. Women can choose from a wide array of collection from backless to noodle-straps, cut-away and off-shoulder cholis to a line of fascinatingly styled corsets.

The Festival is on up to August 27 displaying the country's largest range of lehengas under one roof.
