Designers Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor opened day three of Aamby Valley India Bridal Week with a brilliant luxurious collection.

Rich fabrics, vibrant colours, and sensuous silhouettes, are their trademark in this sea of couture bridal wear.

Called “The Mogul Opera”, the collection had traditional touches of their brand mixed with opera style ball gowns and ethnic bridal wear. The collection blended the late Elizabethan period and the Mogul period to create lavish ornate lehengas, remarkable corsets, and sexy cholis. The collection was also an ode to the country's rich Jamevaar heritage.

Luxurious satin was the base of most garments, while Benares brocade styled shimmering borders. French lace appeared on the sleeves of voluminous anarkalis, which twinkled with crystals to create an enticing effect on the garments.

Dividing the show into sections, the designers opened with a series of gorgeous gowns beginning with a gold silk one-shoulder creation with tonal embroidery followed by a tulle over lacey vision for a will-power number.

The next look switched back to Indian inspiration with floor hugging kurtas, heavily paneled in layers of tulle. The western touches of ruffled hemlines and frilled cuffs with tassels just added to that over-ornate style of the rococo period.

Menswear comprised of bundhgalas and sherwanis. The shaded rust tonal embroidered Jodhpuri jackets and Mogul sherwani were meant for the royal man.

Bipasha Basu, in a maroon and gold paneled Jamevaar embroidered corset blouse and lehenga rocked the runway. The full luxurious petticoat under the voluminous creation gave that marked baroque feel to the ensemble. She was stunning and regal; wearing a gown that perhaps us mere mortals would never dare to possess.

The jadau jewelry by Falguni Mehta was the perfect accessory for their collection.
