Designer duo David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore took a modern and minimal perspective at Indian wedding dressing for their new collection at the ongoing Wills India Fashion Week.
The designers reinterpreted the traditional occasion dressing into a sleek, modern 21st century bridal wardrobe for the contemporary Indian woman.
"The modern India bride wants things to be light and comfortable. Our take is very contemporary and suits the needs of the modern Indian woman," said Abraham.
The collection comprised lehengas teamed up with crispy tailored top, trousers, sarees, which have been casually restyled while maintaining the classicism.
The show was sponsored by the Ministry of Textiles and the designs have been created from hand-woven brocades.
"Each fabric for each garment has been specially woven by Ekaya rooted in the rich textile heritage of Benaras. We have re-imagined the classic Banarasi brocade, celebrated for richness and complexity, to create a collection that pays homage to the very nature and structure of weaving," said Thakore.
"Our design inspiration has been taken from the simple intertwining of threads- the wrap and the weft- to create a strong modern geometry of horizontals and verticals which are played out in the richness of silk and metallic," Abraham added.
