Falguni & Shane Peacock - The Peacock Bride in Paris - Aamby Valley India Bridal Week 2012

2012 Sep 25 - by Preeti
The punk rock, couture duo Falguni and Shane Peacock, brought us a taste of something old, something new with their newest bridal collection.

The Peacock bride visited Paris and a burlesque party as models strutted in mermaid cut gowns and lenghas, adorned with ostrich feathers and embroidered red roses.

Known for dramatic makeup, the eyes shimmered in a streak of gold with black eye shadow and feather eyelashes. This wasn't the usual look for a bride, but since when did the peacock go for pedestrian?

The fabrics were a collection of exquisite net, chiffon, georgette, satin, rich velvet, delicate lace and gold sheeting that gave a perfect touch to the western silhouettes with fabulous embroidery.

Luxurious evening and bridal gowns, full ghagras, anarkalis, farshi pajamas and graceful kalidaar saris were shown with sexy halters, bustiers and tiny shrugs.

Colors were in the traditional reds, greens, and ivorys but also more dainty shades of peaches and pistachios.

Model Sara Jane Dias dressed in an ivory net gown with exquisite embroidery and shoulder detailing. Though it was unfortunate that the gown was uncomfortable to wear with Dias stumbling along the runway and smiling awkwardly.

Actress Zarine Khan was the perfect ethnic bride in a stunning rani pink silk lehenga encrusted with crystals/resham, teamed with matching seductive choli and luxurious net dupatta.

Check out the rest of the designer collections from Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week, including: Shantanu & Nikhil, Pallavi Jaikishan, Ashima Leena, Falguni and Shane Peacock, Tarun Tahiliani, Anjalee & Arjun Kapoor, Jyostna Tiwari, Vikram Phadnis, Narendra Kumar.
