Abraham & Thakore present collection for modern bride at WIFW

Indo Asian News Service

New Delhi, March 15 (IANS) Ignoring floral shades like green, yellow and orange for subtle colours like dark reds, pinks, blacks and mustards, designer duo Abraham & Thakore's collection 'Shaadi Redux' aimed to provide a range out of the usual league for the modern bride

"We have looked at the Indian wedding dressing sense from a modernist perspective. Today a modern bride wants to look different. It's the perfect wardrobe collection of a modern day bride," said Abraham, as the duo showcased the collection Friday evening at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week 2013 (Autumn/Winter).

"Like there's this long pleated lehenga worn with tailored top, or a stylish fitted skirt worn with a short blouse," he said.

The collection included saris, skirts, short Tees, jackets, kurtas and formal coats.

Abraham said that he used a lot of pure silk and brocade. "Zari cutwork has been done extensively on the garments. Apart from this, we have also done badla embroidery, gold zari work, tussar brocade with badla cutwork, and thread work," he added.

The designers started working on the collection five months back. "We completed graphic and paperwork by December and then began with the tailoring. Lot of complicated weaving techniques have been involved. Like weaving the jaals (net designs) using pure Jakarta fabric was tough. But we did it," he said.

The designers haven't yet fixed the prices. "It's still in progress. We are so tired but finally we did it," he said.
