Ritu Beri showcases Punjab inspired collection at Couture Week

New Delhi: With political leaders like Sushma Swaraj and Shashi Tharoor in attendance, ace designer Ritu Beri made her debut at the Delhi Couture Week with her Punjab inspired collection.

Titled `Punjabi Rock and Roll`, the show was an amalgamation of everything Punjabi - from the ornate peepal tree on the stage, to the live orchestrated performance by famous singer Jasbir Jassi.

"I always wanted to perform live at a fashion show and finally my dream was fulfilled today. I really enjoyed working with Ritu," said Jassi.

Delhi-based classical singer Sunanda Sharma also performed hit Punjabi numbers with Jassi during the show.

"I am a Punjabi and so I took inspiration from my own culture. I enjoyed putting together this whole collection. It took me almost 6 months to complete it but I am very happy to see the result," Beri said.

The fabrics used in the bridal collection were silk velvets, brocades, satins and nets- all blended and intricately embroidered with zardosi, gota, Swarovski and threadwork.
The colour palate ranged from whites to pastels, metallics to blacks.

The silhouettes were a mix of traditional costumes with a contemporary look. The clothes were grand and courtly. The skirts were voluminous.

The silhouettes ranged from ghagra, Patiala salwars, long jackets, saree inspired gowns, kurtas and gararas.
Beri`s daughter also walked down the runway towards the end of the show in one of her creations.
