What do you get when you put together a Qutab Minar adorned with lamps, chandeliers and red carpet, live music by the powerhouse Shubha Mudgal and a line that is an ode to Nishat Bagh in Kashmir?
A whooping grande finale by Rohit Bal. 102 models cascaded down a runway lined with ornate lamps on either sides with the crowd watching in absolute state of awe. The line covered everything a dreamy bride or groom could ask for. Larger-than-life lehengas in full circle skirts, peplum cut blouses, achkans, sarees with ornate jackets, full length anarkalis, jodhpuris and jackets for men and an entire bouquet of Indian wear deemed fit for a prince and a princess. The colour palette went from white with red, red with gold, black with red and gold and deep wines. The highlights of the grandeur relied on kashmiri thread embroidery, hints of brocade, gold embroidery on velvet and the works. The accessories to accompany these mesmerising clothes were rose flower maang tikkas and rose adornments in the hair. Arjun Rampal walked the ramp for Rohit Bal in a black velvet number and Louboutin shoes. It was interesting to see Christian Louboutin sitting front row for Rohit Bal. This show was the epitome of grandeur and magnificence like never seen before. Kudos to a brilliant end to a wonderful season of fashion.
