Rohit Bal’s Russian fusion
Ace designer in luxury fashion wear, Rohit Bal yet again established that he is the king when it comes to wedding couture. His latest collection, Kehkashaan for ICW 2016 exuded royalty and class.
His designs portrayed a cultural blend of elements from Russia and India. We saw a lot of floral patterns doing rounds in vivid colors.

These identical mojris are the only accessory you’ll need to complete this look on your D-day.
Alternatively, this black velvet number will work well for an evening cocktail or reception. The embossed red roses pump life into this staple velvet piece. Combed back hair and polished black Louboutins effortlessly complete this sharp look.

Varun Bhal’s collection at ICW ‘Vintage Garden’ introduced freshness to Men’s couture with pastel hues and minimalism. Such cleverly put versatile color palette combined with modernity in craftsmanship left the audience spellbound.
This off-white Achkan with dainty vintage embellishments serves best for an outdoor open garden wedding. The pale taupe silk stole and churidar brings sheer grace and eccentricity to the look. Work a neat man bun for some drama.
Varun Bhal also reinvented the Nehru jacket with quite some class. This plain pink silk kurta with an aesthetically embellished Nehru jacket conveniently reiterates that ‘less is more.’ Flaunt this look with a pair of tan shoes or mojris for a sundowner sangeet party or a beachside brunch function.
