Pallavi Jaikishan introduced for the first time on the ramp a bridal wear collection that had a triple offering at the Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013. A new colour palette of garnet, oxblood, and maroon was an unconventional addition to the line from the designer. A leaf lined ramp and towers of flowers covered the pillars on the stage to create the right ambience, for the very elegant and beautiful show by Pallavi Jaikishan one of the pioneers in the Indian fashion business.
Opening the show in shades of blue, oyster, peach and pink, Pallavi showcased clouds of tulle for dresses that gracefully ended in ghagras with matching stoles covered in shimmering sequins, beads and pearls to add that gentle gleam under the arc lights. Added to this section were a long lace tunic with fluid pants and a shorter version with net shararas. Staying away from her trade mark flowers on the garments for the garnet, oxblood and maroon story, Pallavi mesmerized the audience with her lehengas and lehenga/saris.
The delicate tulle and crepes were a delight with tonal appliqués, embellished with passementerie and sequins. The embellishments were created by master craftsmen as resham, sequins and crystals came together in perfect harmony. Paying tribute to the saris in all their grandeur, Pallavi presented four versions for the fashion conscious bride. Here was a blend of net, resham and sequins in feminine shades of pastel peach, pink, which moved to apricot and tangerine for the elegant saris.
Here the sari was the centre of attraction as flowers cascaded down on the borders and the interesting ruffled edges of the saris gave a flirty touch to the traditional creation. This line had timeless classic saris with sequins in Pallavi’s favourite floral designs, aimed at a bride who wants a memorable timeless heirloom for her dreamlike wedding. The embellishments were cleverly positioned to create that magical ethereal look on the ramp for the saris.
