From long flowing silhouettes beautifully embellished with zardozi and Swarovski to elegant saris and multi-coloured anarkalis accompanied with stylish accessories, designer Charu Parashar's collection at the Rajasthan Fashion Week (RFW) 2013 was a tribute to the state's royal heritage and culture.
Parashar showcased her collection titled "An Ode to Royalty" on the day two of ongoing RFW at the Fairmont here.
Designer Ritu Kumar left viewers mesmerized as she showcased her exclusive collection, featuring an ensemble for young brides, on day two of the ongoing Rajasthan Fashion Week (RFW) 2013 at the Fairmont here.
The auditorium, packed with socialites, industrialists, buyers and media, buzzed with cheers and applause as the models dazzled on the ramp. Ritu Kumar admitted that she has always taken inspiration from Rajasthan's heritage for all her collections.
Femina Miss India World 2013 Navneet Kaur Dhillon walked the ramp for Bhopal-based designer Shivangee Sharma during the second day of Rajasthan Fashion Week.
Navneet looked stunning in Sharma's creation - an Indo-Western bridal gown, embellished with traditional embroidery and vibrant zari and threadwork.
"The theme of the show 'Senorita' really fascinated me. The bridal gown is a perfect amalgamation of Indian and western cuts. It makes me feel like a princess," she said.
A major attraction of the second edition of Rajasthan Fashion Week (RFW) 2013 was an offsite show by Jaipur-based designer Rohit Kamra, who showcased his menswear collection at the pool side area of the Fairmont hotel.
From designer Jodhpuri jackets, Nehru collar jackets, perfectly paired with fitted trousers and formal shirts, Rohit's menswear line represented elegance and style.
The formal suits, cuff links studded with precious stones like emeralds and rubies, handmade jeweled buttons, and brooches enhanced the look of the outfits.
The second edition of Rajasthan Fashion Week (RFW) 2013 began at the Fairmont here Friday with Mumbai-based designer Vikram Phadnis showcasing Rajasthan's traditional outfits and accessories for both men and women.
In line with the theme "Recreation of Kali," the collection was designed keeping in mind a modern woman who is confident, bold and independent.
The collection for women was a perfect blend of modern and traditional silhouettes. It comprised vibrant ghaghra cholis (ankle length skirts and blouses with duppattas), floor length designer anarkalis, saris and kurtas.
