Designer duo Shantanu and Nikhil Mehra decided to focus on trying new patterns, cuts and layering for their new collection. The "To Die For" line was showcased at the opening day of India Bridal Fashion Week, held on Tuesday.
"Dupattas are on a way out from the closet as contemporary young women no longer want to carry such ensemble and irritate themselves by tying it around their neck during party or events. Anarkalis in new shapes, structures and patterns are the new entrants in style file. Short and floor length jackets with anarkali underneath are also a big trend. Lot of layering is happening nowadays", Nikhil said.
Their collection was an ode to the woman of today, indeed, in Shantanu’s words “Brides today are very clear and practical. They know what they want. My collection serves those brides. This collection focuses on the soft and beautiful bride, who embraces everything feminine and dotes on chic and contemporary fashion."
