  • BRIDAL EXTRAVAGANZA CAME TO CENTRE STAGE WITH THE DIYA RAJVVIR COLLECTION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2019

    Published on August 26, 2019

     The Diya Rajvvir label created by Diya Arora and Rajvvir Arora was aimed at the bride who longs for memorable timeless wedding trousseaux. The label’s festive collection “Rosette” was all about romance that will last forever with creations that celebrate the bridal event. The brand’s distinct leitmotif was the hand painted story, which pointed to abstract roses created on feminine, flowing, diaphanous silk organza and suiting material.

    The embellishments matched the festive look of the collection as vintage beadwork highlighted the beauty of the separates. Detailing came in the form of exaggerated shapes, while the expertly constructed ensembles were the basis of the garments. Colours had to be bright and festive so the choice fell on berry, mauve, dusty rose and blush.

    While women’s ethnic wear had all the glitz and glamour with a strong emphasis on mauve and Marsala, the Indo-western silhouettes at times veered towards the western options, to enable the bride to select from myriad choices.

    The appeal of the collection lay in its almost Victorian aesthetics combined with stylish fashion, though some hints of gothic romance however were thrown in with the billowy silhouettes when the designers unveiled surreal images.  The long flowing satin skirts were teamed with bikini corsets and faux bubble sleeves, while the body-con mini heavily embroidered with roses, was topped with a sheer floor-length robe.

    The 3-piece set comprising shorts, jackets with balloon sleeves and bustier was ideal cocktail wear, while the plunge V-neck, long, billowy-sleeved, gown with an ornate waistband revealed pure elegance. Pant suits, mini skirts, pleated palazzos, pussy-bow style blouses and belted tunics completed the festive look.

    Large, embroidered collars looked impressive for long-sleeved gowns, while a halter jumpsuit was pleated to perfection. The trench coats were given a formal treatment making them ideal for the cocktail hours. The pleated, empire-line gown with a sheer long coat could look great on the Red Carpet. More stunners came in the form of a bodysuit with a sexy, tiered, tulle tie-up long skirt.

    The sari stayed in tune with the inspiration but was draped over a balloon-sleeved blouse with stunning rose embroidery.

    Making a show stopping entry was Malaika Arora who made a grand appearance in a plunging neckline, fitted choli with giant, layered, fan sleeves and a slinky, rose, embroidered marsala, high-slit long skirt.

    For bridal wear that is show stopping, the “Rosette” collection by Diya Rajvvir assured that the selection is limitless.
