Mumbai: Bollywood actresses Neha Dhupia and Prachi Desai walked the ramp for designers Shane and Falguni Peacock during the ongoing India Bridal Week here over the weekend.
Dhupia walked the ramp in a beautiful red bridal ‘lehenga’, an ensemble with a heavily embellished long skirt, top and stole, and praised the designers for beautiful collection.
“Looking at today’s collection, I have to say that to wear such clothes I feel I have to become a bride for more than one time because the clothes are so nice that you cannot choose which outfit you really want to wear when you become a bride,” said Dhupia.
Apart from designing traditional outfits such as ‘lehengas’ and saris, the Peacocks also showcased modern dresses, both bridal and for the trousseau. The vibrant palette included green, blue, black and baby pink, orange, fuschia, yellow and gold.
“Basically we have tried to break the rules of wearing very traditional clothes and again we have done traditional jewellery designed by Renu Mehra. She is a very good friend and she has put in a lot of efforts for coordinating the entire look because jewellery always completes the look for the garments and with the jackets. It made it a little trendier, and I thought the seriousness of the bridal look got a little fun,” said Falguni Peacock.
Classical musicians Amaan and Ayaan Ali Khan also walked the ramp for designers Shantanu and Nikhil.
The India Bridal Week that kicked off on Friday focuses on wedding clothes, jewellery and accessories.
The ongoing five-day event is held under the aegis of the Fashion and Design Promotion Council (FDPC).
