New Delhi  – Model and actress Lisa Haydon walked down the Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week (ICW) ramp in New Delhi flaunting a contemporary bridal lehenga designed by Monisha Jaising.

Her look as a bride was complete with ‘chooda’ and ‘kaliras’ specific to the Punjabi wedding tradition.

Lisa’s strong stage presence was accentuated by Jaising’s heavily embroidered lehenga, which she teamed with a white knotted top to give it a modern twist. Exquisite jewellery pieces by the fashion extravaganza’s title sponsor complemented the overall look, showcased here Thursday night.

The striking feature was the use of ‘chooda’ (red and white bangles) and ‘kalire’ (umbrella shaped ornaments), traditionally worn by Sikh brides to be.

The models walked the runway to showcase the ‘World Bride’ range, inspired by the lifestyles of the high-borne from the past. The collection’s inspiration is a fusion of Indian, Mughal and European styles of monarchy architecture and lifestyle.

Aimed at modern, confident and edgy brides, the pieces captured the drama of the 18th Century, especially the Rococo style known for its splendor, grandeur and luxury.

She used sensuous draping from luxe fabrics featuring golden embroideries on light and dark surfaces. The intricate embroidery takes inspiration from the homes of the high-borne in Rococo style, promoted by Madame de Pompadour; King Louis XV’s official mistress.

World Bride also takes its influence from the City Palace, Jaipur, which includes the Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal palaces and other buildings. The palace complex incorporates an impressive and vast array of courtyards, gardens and buildings, which has been captured in the form of imagery and intricate embroidery in Jaising’s collection.

The silhouettes are constructed keeping in mind the Indian body type which makes it commercially viable. There are sensuous sari gowns, swirling lehengas, embellished leggings, sherwanis, evening wear, and structured versions of the kurti in fabrics like pure georgette, leather, velvet, heavy satin, stretch net, nylon.

Neutral colours such as ivory, ebony, silver, gold and denim blue; sorbet colours such as mint green, ice blue, banana yellow, pale pink, whiskey creme; earthy tones such as olive green, brick red and burnt umber, tangerine; jewel tones such as emerald green, ruby, topaz, and turquoise; and monotones such as black and white have been used for the line.

Digital printing, cut work embroidery, Mukaish embroidery, Persian embroidery techniques, Zardozi embroidery and other hand drawn embroideries have been well-incorporated in the line.
