IBFW 2014: Raghavendra Rathore redefines traditional attire
Day two of the ongoing BMW India Bridal Fashion Week saw ace fashion designer Raghavendra Rathore coming out with a mesmerizing collection of traditional attire at the DLF Emporio in New Delhi.
The ramp was set up like an old glass house for this collection. Models walked down the ramp from the backstage that was decorated with stain glass. Rathore's designs always have the old world charm of Rajasthan, this year's collection included ancestral and classic fluid Dhoti.
The quintessential Rathore Bandhgala was embroidered beautifully and paired with silk dhotis draped in styles from across the country, adding dramatic flair to the whole ensemble.
Aditi Rao Hydari and Ali Fazal were showstoppers of the show. Hydari sashayed down the ramp in a dazzling white saree with zardosi work, while Fukrey actor Fazal was dressed in a pink achkan, long waistcoat and a plain white dhoti from Raghavendra's couture.
Though Rathore's creations focused on the traditional, the music chosen for the show was western. Be it stage or music, royal attires, or Bolllywood tadka...all in all Raghavendra's show gathered huge applause from one and all.
