Nature inspired collection cast a spell on audience at India Couture week in New Delhi

NEW DELHI, INDIA (JULY 29, 2017) (ANI) – Fashion designer Anita Dongre added an extra bit of glamour to the India Couture week, underway in New Delhi, on Sunday (July 30) as she showcased her nature-inspired ‘Tree of Love’ collection.

The resplendent bridal collection drew inspiration from the Bishnoi tribe, living in northwestern Rajasthan state, who over the centuries, have nurtured and protected the forests and the wildlife.

The collection featured embroidered tabards, styled with tulle skirts and hand-embroidered tea-length dresses with lehengas (traditional Indian skirts) in hues of blue, rich maroons, inky black, and emerald green.

Meanwhile, the audience was treated to yet another mesmerizing collection by celebrated designer Gaurav Gupta.

Titled ‘Moondust’, Gupta’s couture featured western silhouettes with a lot of sparkle, which had a heavenly and futuristic feel to it.

Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari, closed the show for Gupta. Hydari set the stage on fire as she sashayed down the ramp wearing a gown with minimal make-up and no accessories.

The actress, who walked down for the designer for the first time, was all praise for Gupta’s work.

Ace designer Manish Malhotra will be closing the 10th anniversary ICW on July 30 in what is expected to be an impressive show.
