A wedding spectacular by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla

Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla launch their bridal collection with a scintillating mix of ranges that, together, spell absolute Fantasy. This annual bridal showcase was intended for the woman searching for a distinctive and luxurious style statement. Helping her to choose the perfect ensemble were eleven ranges—Award, Bloom, Bougainvillea, Paris, Aubusson, Spring Blossom, Sonaa, Phulwari, Sheen, White and Classic Chikan. Through Cocktail, Mehendi, Haldi, Sangeet, and finally Shaadi, a breath-taking array of richly embellished silhouettes shimmered past, interspersed with whirling dancers and a traditional shaadi band.This wedding collection is unequivocally infused with crystals from Swarovski and inspired by the wonders of nature, the elegance of Paris. Deeply romantic and distinctly diverse, the collection features a fabulous range of fabrics and techniques from Organza and Silk to Duchess Satin and Georgettes.The Silhouettes accented with Crystals from Swarovski, too embrace the entire spectrum from Indian to Western and short and slinky to voluminous extravagance. Like Love, this collection knows no bounds. It is quite simply the artists’ creativity running wild and free on the silhouette that is ‘Shaadi by Marriott’.

 

Celebrating the designers’ 25th year of working with Chikankari, a type of intricate white-on-white embroidery, its showstopper outfit was worn by Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor. The exquisite Venice-inspired lehenga skirt showed off a wonderfully imaginative use of Chikankari, while Swarovski crystals provided the shimmer and a lattice dupatta and traditional jewelry in red and white completed the look. This was a sumptuous showcase of Parisian chic beautifully blended with traditional Indian grandeur.Each design that is encrusted with Crystals from Swarovski comes with an Ingredient Branding tag, carrying an exclusive 16-digit alphanumeric code, which acts as a sophisticated tracking system to monitor the quality of the crystals. One can verify the authenticity of the crystals by logging on www.crystalsfromSwarovski.com and verifying the 16-digit unique code.
