I liked Abhi & Rahul’s saree & lehenga collection displayed at Lakme Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2010 because of the festive colours and the embroidery work. Honestly if the traditional Indian Bridalwear is without detail work, there is not much fun in flaunting it. Even if the embroidery or the zari workis used to the minimum but should not be devoid of it. Abhi Rahul’s collection is for the bride who wants to dress up more subtly than be demure on her wedding day. The backgrounds have muted tones combined with bright colour sequin work. The collection has rich fabrics like silks, velvet along with rubia cotton, colourful khadi, brocade and net. I am a fan of their styling of a saree with a matching jacket as seen below. Very contemporary and glamorous yet fit for the cold Indian winters.
