BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2015: Day 4 & 5

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Here I am with the last post of BMW IBFW 2015. It was 4th day of BMW IBFW 2015, and this day was started with an interesting blend of art & style. 

Nature and art have always been an intrinsic part of the Gauri & Nainika design philosophy. Fall 2015 Haute Couture is a whimsical arrangement of vivid prints and floral textures in floaty and light shapes. 

Intense bougainvillea textures, airy voluminous skirts, bodices with sharp modern cut outs, circular flowers, dresses in sheer organza and tulle, iridescent pearls in pastel colours, all bring a sweet dream like quality to the collection. 

The designers have collaborated with American artist Travis Bruce Black whose work instantly struck a chord with them. 

A dream wedding inspired by the elements of nature has a generous sparkle of crystals from Swarovski.  Lacquer effects of crystal powder in blue, green, rose and yellow colors; with Opal tones in chrysotile opal, pacific opal, Rose water opal, White opal offers a bespoke and glamorous highlight to the collection.  Hot fix shapes of bow flat back and heart flat back, and hot fix transparent tones which look like dew drops on fabric have strongly influenced the mood of the collection.

Followed by Gauri Nainika's collection it was time for dynamic designer duo, Shantanu & Nikhil's collection. 

Always known to play contemporary in different shades of emotions, this fall, master couturiers Shantanu & Nikhil disseminates to you “The Mahal” directly from the soul of the sands, a never ending brisk to discover the mighty architecture, inspiring culture, divine royalty and inviting glamour.

The collection embarks on its journey from the attractive lore culture with the braced narration of the peaceful essence of deserts natural canvas and the intermeddle is a mesmerizing allurement of charismatic luxurious attributes and the strong influence of the  “Jharokha”, “Sheesh Mahal” and then the seamless sojourn of the palace which comes down to the grandeur of the vigorous and the prestigious “Chariot”. 

The color palette is drawn from the native solitary beauty- beige and brown cheerfully ambles into silver metallic and patina gold and then a bright boost with an accompaniment of the intensity of rich reds and teal blues speaking about the glory and the diversified charm of the atmosphere.

The silhouette is inspired from the strong and controlled structural architecture bringing out the precious assets throughout the collection and the inspiration begins with the pasts end note and a take on enfeebled ingredients to a paramount pageant of grandiose, luxury & affluence.
