He is known as the ‘ India’s master of fabric and fantasy’. An ace designer who is very well known in the international circuit with his impressive clientele list  like Cindy Crawford, Pamela Anderson, Naomi Campbell and more. Rohit Bal is known to understand the psyche of his buyers so well that the fashion pundits have bestowed the title- ‘trend setter of fashion industry’ on him. He left  the audience completely spell bound with his collection- ‘The Mulmul Masquerade’ on day 4 of India Bridal Fashion Week. Sharing his excitement on IBFW he said, “I have done so many couture shows in the past, but I never showed my bridal collection on the ramp, and it’s an amazing time to showcase bridal collection.” Before we could see his extravagant collection, the way his entire set was done left so many jaws dropped in the audience. It were the lotus flower pendent lamps of varied sizes which were hanging down the ceiling, and looked so mesmerizing. The famous model, Nayanika Chatterjee opened the show wearing a Victorian gown. Victorian look hairstyle donned by the models, frilled high collared blouse teamed with a saree and a long robe like floor sweeping jackets, reminded everything about the Elizabethan era. With the collection, he intended to take the audience on a journey through centuries of Indian and Elizabethan eras of elegance and opulence. Models sashayed down the ramp in long gowns and with extensive use of muslin in the creation of those Victorian collars, it made everything look so royal.  From simplicity of muslin to extreme grandeur of rich velvets, the collection was signifying at the rich craftsmanship of both these periods. In the men’s collection, there were dhoti pants teamed with jackets, coats over kurtas, long coats with slits in beautiful paisley thread work worn over long skirts and teamed with pyjamis. A lot of kashmiri embroidery work was seen on gowns worn with short velvet jackets by the models in his show. MULMUL collection was all about antique gold kasab kashmiri embroidery on muslin to shibori on fabrics like voiles and chanderi. Corsets donned by models from his collection transported the audience to the Elizabethan era, and reminded of the rich and dramatic pageantry of princesses and fairy tales. Multicolored shimmer work on velvet gowns combined with muslin skirts and Elizabethan collar looked really royal and opulent. Another part of collection which was showcased had extensive light embroidered work on long anarkalis with the use of muslin cloth in the making of such ensembles. To match the taste of Indian bride, a couple of heavy gold embroidered velvet red lehengas were also presented towards the end. The highlight of the evening was when Sonam Kapoor in beautiful muslin and paisley pattern lehenga closed the show for Rohit bal as his show stopper. The show winded with Rohit Bal and Sonam Kapoor dancing to the tunes of a bollywood number.

Hey Mehak,

I LOVE LOVE your blog!! Been following it for a while but haven’t commented much because I feel weird in that, no guy yet but love browsing your wedding blog lol

Anyway, I’m totally going to be using your services when I get married. I’m being serious since I have no family in Delhi and can’t spend so long in India just looking around lol.

So, I have a question: how much would the lehenga be that Sonam Kapoor is wearing?

Thank you!
