New Delhi, Aug 10 IANS | 2 months ago

Internationally acclaimed designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock gave a touch of rock 'n' roll and spunk to their bridal showcase at the BMW India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW). They duo teamed up biker jackets, jerseys and crop tops with intricately crafted lehengas and saris.


The show, titled - Nuit Sauvage - was clearly a wild take on vintage bridal couture.

"Sauvage means wild and Nuit means night in French. We wanted some inspirational traditional Indian designs and mixed it with something different," Shane told reporters here post the show Saturday night.

"We didn't want to do typical dupattas and cholis. So, we used jerseys instead of usual blouses, and capes instead of dupattas. The ethos remained Indian, but we just changed the silhouette a bit.

"It's for the trendy, sporty and young bride," he added.

The models also sported interesting and unique head jewellery that gelled well with the overall look.

The designers wanted to explore the wild side of brides.

No wonder they teamed up edgy biker jackets with beautiful gowns, crop-tops with lehengas, sheer bodysuits with draped saris, quirky motifs and cascading capes with churidars in antique tones and embroidery.

There were lehengas with digital prints, which caught many an eye in the audience.

The ensembles ranged in colours like off white, light peach and pink offset by gold, silver, deep navy and the duo's signature black.

The duo, known for dressing international celebrities like Madonna, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Fergie, Nicole Scherzinger, Nikki Minaj, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Shakira and Beyonce Knowles, used a mix of vintage net, velvet, georgette and satin for their new collection.
