Yes it was an occasion of a unique fashion tableau, opening of this season's BMW India Bridal Fashion Week on Friday, 7th August 2015, at The DLF Emporio Mall, New Delhi.

I always heard and read about Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, big names of fashion industry but it was my first time to experience there work and couture this closely. They showcased their bridal collection with gorgeous Bollywood style diva Sonam Kapoor as the showstopper.

The show and collection paid homage to Varanasi, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.

This show was a multi-layered presentation that combined myriad elements, Celebration, Festivity, Music and Silence, Spirituality and Creativity, it was an ode to the coming together of the Mind, Body and Soul.

The collections showcased the rich legacy of silks, brocades, gold and silver thread work, carpet weaving that the city is renowned for. These magnificent traditional fabrics and motifs found new expression through their Couture.

Enigmatic Fashionista Sonam Kapoor opened the show wearing a black multi paneled net flared gown detailed in gold and mirror 3 dimensional Lotuses embellished with Swarovski crystals, metallic gold sequins and beads.
