Highlights of BMW Fashion Week 2015 and What to Expect

The BMW India Bridal Fashion Week is a high profile bridal couture show held with grand bridal wear displays from the crème de la crème couturiers of the country. BMW is partnering for the second consecutive year with the India Bridal Fashion Week, taking the premium show a notch up. The BMW Fashion week also promotes trade of bridal couture wear and offers a platform for the designers and the buyers to link up through the Bridal Luxury Couture Exposition. This trade show displays, bridal women’s wear, men’s wear, jewellery and accessories from leading as well as emerging designers in a large set-up, over three days.

In 2014, the BMW Fashion Week was held at the DLF Emporio, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi between Aug 7 and Aug 10. This year, looking resplendent in a pink Suneet Verma bridal lehenga and jadau jewellery, Sonakshi Sinha, the face of BMW fashion week 2015, gave us the first look of the event on 29th May 2015. 

This preview gala of the event held at New Delhi, offered an insight into what we can expect at the upcoming show. The BMW Fashion Week 2015 is an initiative of Fashion One International and the unique factor about the show this year is that it will be travelling across the seven cities of India, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Chandigarh. So it has a much larger platform of demonstration as well as trade this year, reaching out to buyers from every nook and cranny of the country.

Here is the schedule of the BMW Fashion Week 2015 

Some of the designers who will be presenting at the event, displayed a preview of their collection at the launch. The designers’ showcase that we will witness at the show includes:

Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla: Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla will be opening the show at New Delhi on Aug 7th 2015. The designer duo are bringing forth “the Varanasi” collection at the BMW Fashion week. Their line of Banarasi weaves is interspersed with georgette and khadi. The runway will see more of pinks, reds, oranges and yellows taking inspiration from the bold colours of the holy city.

Suneet Verma: The New Delhi show’s Finale will be at the DLF Emporio under Suneet Verma. The designer has given a glimpse of intricate embroidery on navy blue saree and lehenga, which will be up on Harpers Bazaar Bride too and also a peek of mirror worked red bridal attire.

J J Valaya: The pro bridal wear couturier will present his collection “Bolshoi Bazaar” at the BMW Fashion week, so we expect to see some Russian inputs to the Indian elegance. Nitya Arora, the accessory designer behind Valliyan has confirmed that her headgear will be seen on the models wearing Valaya’s collection.

Tarun Tahiliani: The 2014 show had an apt opening runway performance called “The Modern Mughals” under the helm of Tarun Tahiliani. This year he is going to present a myriad of colours at the BMW fashion week 2015. His sneak peek keeps the colours under a wrap, displaying a sheer rhinestone studded dupatta.

Ashima – Leena: Ashima - Leena's “Dakshna” will be a South Indian Bridal attire revelation. The hint of the bride with decorated braid and crown jewellery will become a reality soon.

Gauri and Nainika: Gauri and Nainika will be displaying cocktail wear at the BMW Fashion Week 2015. Their teasers reveal addition of texture to fabric through ruched floral petals arranged in patterns.

Shantanu and Nikhil: The designers' preview of bold red couture invites us to indulge in their collection. They will be presenting “the Mahal” collection at the BMW Fashion Week 2015.

Rina Dhaka, Jyotsna Tiwari, Falguni Shane Peacock and Sulakshana Monga are the other couturiers who will be displaying their bridal fineries at their absolute best.

Last year the BMW Fashion Week saw lot of eminent Bollywood personalities gracing the runways as showstoppers. These well known faces included Shraddha Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri, Aditi Rao Hydari, Esha Gupta and Kangana Ranaut. The BMW Fashion Week 2015 will see Lisa Haydon walking for Tarun Tahiliani. Sonakshi Sinha, the brand ambassador of the event will grace J J Valaya’s show.

The magic of BMW India Bridal Fashion Week begins today, and its mystery will be unravelled leisurely across the seven cities of India over a period of time, finally ending in Chennai on November 22, 2015.

Highlights at the Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week 2014

Shantanu and Nikhil Mehra: West meets the East!

In the History of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2014, the only designers that showcased Indian menswear in the course of the entire day were none other than Shantanu & Nikhil Mehra. The Designer duo presented a collection called “The Shadows Within”; it’s about an imaginative character called Vanessa, a British woman who lived in India during the 1930-40’s era.
Shantanu and Nikhil Mehra’s collection created a romantic mood by using shade like oxblood, blush pink, Chocó brown, sand yellow and white ivory. Layered Gowns paired with Victorian evening gloves, Signature sarees and Venetian knee length cocktail dress styles added the perfect Vintage touch to their collection. Shantanu and Nikhil tried to bring femininity in their menswear collection so there were a lot of elegantly draped kurti’s showcased this season. Another eye catching accessory in the men’s-wear collection was the gilded pocket square with the bandhgala jackets. The quirky footwear with intricate work was very well noticed. The fabrics used for the collection were a combination of silk & cotton, which perfectly matches the Autumn Winter Season.
Shantanu and Nikhil successfully managed to put together the ethnic silhouettes with western-wear sensibilities in their new collection at the Wills lifestyle India Fashion Week, 2014.

Nikasha Tawadey : BiBa

On the second day of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2014, the ramp was set on fire by Nikasha Tawadey’s fabulous collection called “BiBa”. The designer showcased an entirely new range for the fall season.
Nikasha only used chitz fabric in a totally vintage style for her collection. The colour scheme for the new collection was shades like cherry red, blush peach, champagne and burgundy wine; Red ombre was evidently used. Slip blouses, sheer ruched tunics, muslin, chanderi sarees and kaftans with fine-crafted hand embroidery and striking embellishments, MAGNIFICIENT! What a delight to watch. The purses styled with the clothes were super adorable and attractive.
Nikasha Tawadey’s collection mirrors a tranquil language where time is the definitive luxury. The collection was a perfect blend of classy illustrations, fabulously articulated at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, 2014.
