#AICW: Couture in review

amazon, bollywood, bridal, couture, fashion, indian

Amazon India sponsored couture week ended this past weekend after a week of amazing designs, jaw-dropping drapery and awe-inspiring looks that would make any woman or man feel like royalty. 

The high fashion roller coaster started off with a collaborative collection from Sabyasachi and Christian Louboutin. From colors beyond imagination, and heels that elevated the models, the collection was memorizing. AICW, which started July 29 and ended August 2, featured some of India’s most prominent designers like Rahul Mishra, Monisha Jaising, Rohit Bal and my personal favorite Manish Malhotra.

Here’s a look at my favorite looks from the designers.

If I had to choose one outfit to go home with from the show, it would be this gorgeous blue one by designer Anju Modi. The vibrant hues paired with the glittery golden threads on the raw silk bodice grabbed my attention instantly. I’m sure anyone would feel like a princess in this outfit!

Hubby loves a good sari and I think I would agree with him on this pale pink one by designer Monisha Jaising and the white one below by designer Varun Bahl. Not only do they provide modest coverage, the sarees have so much detail on the blouses. I’m definitely going to order these for the next formal occasion!

This hunter green combination from designer Manish Malhotra is definitely making me green with envy. The silky texture of the skirt paired with the elaborate sequins of the blouse would make this the perfect wedding reception dress.
