India Bridal Fashion Week 2013: Day 4 Suneet Verma

Suneet Verma has been a favourite for me since the time i was 12 years old and i saw my cousin getting engaged in one of his mint green and blush pink creations. It was the first time, i had even paid any attention to Indian clothes- i was completely mesmerised by how stunning an outfit could be. I adore his attention to detail, his fine workmanship and most of all the girly, fresh colours he uses . I wore a Suneet Verma gown on my own engagement , but if i had a choice i would gladly pick up any one of those pretty pastel lehengas i see in his Emporio store in a heartbeat (ofcourse, all of them are exorbitant, but if i could afford em  i would pick Suneet for my events). Suneet’s 2013 Bridal Collection at IBFW was inspired by the lifestyle of Pompeii and had a distinctly roman feel to it , what with the elaborate draping and gold headgear. While i loved the pale gold pieces, as well as the pastel pieces, i wasnt feeling the printed outfits too much !! India Bridal Fashion Week Delhi 2013 - Model seen in  Suneet Varma's Collection_5 suneet-verma-ibfw-2013 suneet-verma-bridal-collecton-001 suneet-verma-bridal-collection-001

The Official Note:

Suneet Varma, one of India’s famed couturiers, whose designs have been featured on the International and Indian carpet, both, presented his collection- ‘The Golden Bracelet’ on day 5 of the India Bridal Fashion Week.  He is the only international designer with ‘Judith Leiber’, and Suneet Varma for Judith Leiber minaudières are now being retailed across the world. Suneet’s collection- “ The Golden bracelet’ has been inspired by the clothing and lifestyle of Pompeii and is designed in the themes of Romance, Longing and Wedding. The art and architecture, story and grandeur of Pompeii has inspired many artists, writers and architects worldwide.

With roman paintings and sculptures depicted in the backdrop, the whole set created matched the theme of Varma’s collection. The models glided the ramp like some Roman goddesses in saris draped toga style. The first sub theme- ‘Romance’ of the collection was all about jewel toned, rich devour velvet line with gold metallic prints and rich beaded tassels. Sheer blouses with impressive embroidery at back, sheer dress with printed stole and intricate gold work, draped skirts with off shoulder corsets and maroon tunics worn with appliqué, halter and razor cut embroidered blouses, and printed velvet stoles were few highlights of this part of the collection.

The second sub theme- ‘Longing’ was all about the ivory and light blue line in long silhouettes with baroque pearls as adornment. It was a delicate and very subtle collection. Suits teamed with pants, bustier with intricate gold work teamed with sari, silk knits in multi layered floor sweeping dresses, tiered skirts in georgettes with corsets and net jackets, and stylized saris as a dress teamed with sheer blouses were the eye catching aspects of this part of the collection.

One couldn’t overlook the styling and accessories which were carefully chosen for the show. Wreath inspired headgear in gold, necklaces in shapes of twigs, spiral shaped long rings, and long spiral armlets were clearly reminiscent of the bygone era. Lastly, the final sub theme- Wedding derived its inspiration from the poetic life of Pompeii. Floral appliqué saris and long dresses, metal crafted corset, anarkalis and saris in cutwork, lehenga with cutwork and frilled jacket, languid silhouettes in peaches and soft pinks, and tulle shrugs worn with lace corsets were star attractions of this part of the collection. The rushing and pleating techniques incorporated were symbolic of the long toga drapes and column dresses of that time. Indrani Das Gupta was donned in a red and gold work, can-can lehenga which was truly traditional in every aspect. The surprise of the evening was yet to come with Chitrangada Singh walking the ramp in red and gold shimmery lehenga for Suneet Varma as his show stopper. The beautiful show was choreographed by Aparna Anisha Bahl and Tania Lefebvre.

Hehe i guess in a way- the feel and flow is similar. Mine was a different color and had these hanging kind of things on it

Ahhh that’s another great collection…wish i could have seen this collection a little before my marriage.

Thanks for sharing the images Mehak! I love the way the collection was initiated with beautiful printed velvets & flat chiffons, but would have loved for the designer to follow-up this theme. Some of the pieces are gorgeous (the embroideries are oomph!!), but the collection as such is mixed-up so badly! Makes you wonder whether they are all pieces of the same-puzzle?
