We're kicking off the day with one of our fave designers, Payal Singhal
. Her collection was titled "Bridal Fantasy" and it definitely lived up to the name! Payal used beautiful shades of cream, ash green, sage green, champagne and more and presented them in tulle, brocades and silk. Heavenly opulence would be my title for it and I'm sure you'll fall head over heels for these dresses, lehngas and suits!"With ghungroos on the ankles of her models Payal set the mood for the collection as Umrao Jaan’s sound track serenaded the audience with a mix of some fusion beats.Sensational, fluid and seductively flowing sheer anarkalis and diaphanous lehengas glided down the ramp evoking visions of Umrao Jaan and Lady Gaga – two complete contrasting fashion icons. Shimmering New Age metallic fabrics were teamed with soft pretty pastels and embellished with the richness of mukaish, filigree, resham and zardozi work.For the 21st century bride, Payal Singhal’s bridal collections will not only add style and glamour but an amazing, opulent and unconventional addition to the wardrobe."
