If there's one thing that can be promised at Delhi's Couture Week, is the beautiful and unique cultural embroidery that is timeless and usually inspired by past decades of fashion movement in India. 

Designer's Breakdown:

I have selected some of my favourite pieces, from each designers collection during Delhi's Couture Week:

Manish Malhotra:

Manish Malhotra is truly ever girls bridal outfit fantasy, he never fails to produce some of the most princess style Indian gowns, dusted in head to toe luxury. He knows how to balance the right amount of volume in every Anarkali that he puts his name on, enough flare to make you feel fierce and yet the poise of a classic Maharani (princess). 

Malhotra bought detailed kashmir embroidery and can-can like layering to the modern day Lengha and Anarkali. He added the power of drama and fun with the use of pinks, orange and gold, with detailed highlights of colour with in the combinations. 

The show was closed with a special celebrity wearing the final look, Bollywood Superstar Katrina Kaif. The beige and gold lengha had a trail at the back with Kashmiri embroidery and net duppta. 

This show was everything Manish Malhotra's charm of fashion is known for, being pretty yet glamorous and straight out of a Bollywood fantasy. 

Gaurav Gupta: 

Guaurav Gupta the sculpture of Indian gowns, with his great use of fabric draping. The sari-dress's which bought tradition into a western ball gown, in a light pearly colour. Great tones of beige, fresh white, flash of orange and mustard yellow. Gaurav Gupta never fails to bring his trademark of Grecian pleating to his masterwork. -
