September 27, 2011 - by Preeti

Vikram Phadnis closed off Friday night's Aamby Valley India Bridal Week (AVIBW) with a breathtaking traditional wedding collection updated for modern times. His collection maintained synchrony with all models wearing a jasmine flower garland headpiece, known as a gajra.

Traditional Meets Modern

I was head over heels with the jasmine gajras and bright colored lenghas and sari. They were elegant but regal. Phadnis focused on the simplicity of intricate, metallic border embroidery combined with vibrant colors like royal blue, kumkum red, and haldi yellow.

The surprise was Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh who appeared at the end of the show with Phadnis. The women in the audience could be heard screaming and whistling.
