Monisha Jaising redefines beach wedding couture

New Delhi, August 2 (IANS) Fashion designer Monisha Jaising's strength lies in resort wear, and her sensibilities reflected well in her new couture line 'Happily Ever After' that is all about a "beach wedding".

She showcased her line Thursday night at the PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2013 organised by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI).

From the word go, the show had a beach feel about it. A barechested male model in swimming trucks kickstarted the show holding a blingy umbrella over a female model's head as she took to the ramp wearing a simple red gown.

Jaising didn't adhere to the general bridal wear rules, but she made sure to add the essential bling that all brides love in their attire.

"It's about beach wedding. I've used colours that go well with the sand and other elements of the beach," Jaising told reporters post the show.

The designer played around with bejewelled leggings and dresses embellished with chains and crystals around the shoulder area.

The jewelled leggings were teamed with red wool crop jacket with 'baroque' embroidery elements, purple brocade sherwani, emerald Jaamevaar sherwani layered over a ribbed jersey tank top and more.

The intricately beaded gowns reminded one of waterfalls. Not only because of the cuts, but also due to the use of different shades of blue like midnight and ink.

There was a cotton dress in ivory, a black-knitted dress and also a purple-knitted dress with gold foil block prints and sequins.

Indian bridal wear is considered incomplete without lehengas, and Jaising made sure

she catered to that segment as well, with showstopper Miss Universe Canada 2012 Sahar Biniaz flaunting a sand-coloured number.

Jaising's range of lehengas were in bright and striking colours like lime green, flourescent coral, burgundy, navy blue. As she shifted from gowns to Indian wear, the party music in the background, also made way for ethnic fusion tunes.

The collection had a high bling quotient, and it was wise on the designer's part to use no jewellery at all, barring some models who flaunted bangles and earrings.

The ramp and stage were minimal.
