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.

High-Low Indian Tunics as Must Have of the Season!

From famous Bollywood celebrities to the street, everyone seems gone crazy for high-low Indian tunics!

The trend of the season is a two-length style, doesn’t matter if is a dress, skirt or top, and Indian designers know this quite well.

Bollywood celebrities fell in love with Payal Singhal ‘s new collection of gorgeous high-low Indian tunics. For example, have a look at Huma Qureshi, that was seen promoting her upcoming movie “Dedh Ishqiya” wearing colourful pants and a printed tunic by Payal Singhal. She matched the look with a trendy neckpiece with black coloured beads.

What about the ever gorgeous Sonakshi Sinha? She looked stunning on “Comedy Nights” sets in a black and white colored style by Payal Singhal.

Both the celebrities wore Indian tunics matched with flat shoes, would you have done the same? Maybe would have been better to match a high-low cut with high heels!

What about red for you bridal lehenga?

Gorgeous Indian Tunic Tops wore by Celebrities at a Store Launch

In occasion of the launch of a new collection of styles by Mark & Spencer, some Bollywood celebrities were present in the important guests list.

Among these, Sonakshi Sinha, Nita Ambani and Bipasha Basu, were in first row showcasing stylish looks.

The trend of the moment seems to be wearing Indian tunic tops, like the one showcased by Nita Ambani at the event, who complemented the style with a bohemian necklace.

Talking generally about the guests look, we loved how they have created a contrast between the colour of the shoes, and the rest of the outfit.
Have a look for instance at Shibani Dandekar: she matched a lace blue coloured dress with open toe in a brilliant red tone!

However also the guests in Indian tunic tops were fabulous!

But what cached our attention the most, was the white coloured style showcased by the ever gorgeous Sushmita Sen. She looked amazing in white gown and flashy jewellery!

 Definitely the Indian necklaces showcased were stunning!
