Shivan & Narresh

Think destination wedding and Shivan & Narresh’s pool appropriate designs come to mind. This pink and gold number could set anyone’s heart racing.

You’d expect bridal wear and couture from Tarun Tahiliani, but what was presented was a ready-to-wear collection, which left everyone super excited. Yes, there was a saree, but the drape was truly unique!

If you thought you’d see tradition from Sabyasachi, you were right, to an extent. While his heavily embroidered saree design was stunning, it was the tube blouse (or no blouse?) that piqued our interest.

Pinakin put forth contemporary lehenga and choli combinations at Lakmé Fashion Week. The waistcoat paired with a lehenga takes it to fusion territory making it instantly more wearable.
