There was the expected high drama on the ramp when the curtains came down Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2013 Day 3. With the good, the bad and the ugly, the show kept us hooked till the very end. Here’s the lowdown:
The opening pieces of this designer’s collection showcased bridals themed on a pastel palette. With soft hues like beige, baby pink, light blue and white, Sana Abbas’s collection was designed for a graceful bride. The dresses with paisley motifs had a touch of regality and looked majestic on the ramp.
When will this eyesore of a mystery be solved? The designer failed to impress on every levels. With the right recipe for a ramp disaster in hand, Mistry showcased net chooridars, glittery mermaid-inspired lehengas and off-shoulder cholis full of coin-sized sequins. While we laud her for producing well-stitched albeit complicated pieces, we seriously wonder who will ever wear them.
Debuting on the ramp, Mifrah Gul, who has been designing for years, is on the top of her game. Gul did not play with a lot of colour and her collection mainly featured shades of beige and off-white, with hints of maroons and peaches for both men and women.
The stunner that stole the limelight was a black sari embellished with lots of silver sequins.
From the slender chooridars to the magnanimous ghararas and farshi shararas, Deepak’s collection was ceremonial to the core. The embroidery, although intricate and light, looked appealing.
In men’s wear, Deepak showcased structured sherwanis, paired with bright rust kullas and dhooti shalwars, which looked very classy.

HSY’s collection had a signature grand appeal. From his immaculately done up sherwanis to ghararas with extensive silver wire work, everything was stunning. Keeping it traditional, HSY accessorized the outfits with batwas.
