India Couture Week 2018 concluded on Sunday and the fashion week witnessed a host B-town celebrities as showstoppers for ace designers. Kaabil actor, Yami Gautam walked the ramp for designer Reynu Taandon on Day 4 of the ICW 2018. She looked gorgeous and almost like a bride when she stepped out in a bespoke meticulous lehenga set from the designer’s latest collection. Reynu’s collection was a perfect blend of traditional and conventional and featured crystals, beads and dainty floral embellishments.
The designer’s collection was titled ‘Once Upon a Dream’. The entire collection, mostly bridals, featured lehengas in pure pastel shades like coral, gold, ivory, mint and pink. Taandon told Hindustan Times, “The collection is all about the blending of pastel tones and tender flora elements and has been designed considering modern brides who don’t want to do the same thing the whole world is doing.”
Yami looked delicate and beautiful just like the lehenga. The actress was draped in a pale gold voluminous tulle skirt with neon pink and white embroidered patterns. The blouse was adorned with 3-D crystals and beads. The only accessory, apart from her gorgeous smile, she wore was her a pair of traditional earrings. Chic crop of hair and neutral glamourous makeup with the perfectly-winged liner accentuated her over all look.
Speaking on the collection, Taandon said in an interview before her show, “This time I have used chanderi in a different, a younger way because young girls like to wear less weight, there’s also net and lace. My lehengas are not for one time use, you can wear them 20 years later – they’re forever.” Kangana Ranaut and Aditi Rao Hyadri kickstarted the India Couture Week in Anju Modi collection, while Kareena Kapoor was the showstopper for Falguni and Shane Peacock.
