It is that time of the year again, when opulence hits Delhi’s glitterati and connoisseurs of fashion bow down to the magnificence of craftsmanship and intricacies of design.
Yes, dear readers it’s PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012, presented by FDCI that will kick off on Wednesday, 8th – Sunday,12th August 2012 at Hotel Taj Palace in New Delhi. And we at joos.in are going to bring you the exquisite taste of the wondrous creations of the 11 leading couturiers of India straight from the ramp into your inbox.
Keep your eyes peeled for the biggest names in the industry to blow your mind with their creations.
The exciting times are here with Manish Arora presenting at the couture week after a gap of 3 yrs, can’t wait to see the drama and pomp of his collections transforming the style runways. Wonder what the Pandora’s box is going to reveal for the young hopeful brides! I can almost visualize the bright eccentric hues coming together in an artistic surprise.
Then of course it’s Sabhyasachi’s finale –New Moon, a couture collection flirting with whimsical undertones of Parsi culture and Paris in the 1920s, that’s a must on anyone’s list.
After Rocky S- Vilasa it’s JJ Valaya who will be launching JJ Valaya Luxury Weddings at the Week, which will include wedding decor, hospitality and of course trousseau. We will bask in his legendary grandiose where, “the offsite show area will be converted into a Turkish kingdom called ‘The Realm of the Sultan’,” says Valaya. This seems to be in continuation perhaps from his Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week theme- Azrak, where the runway was converted into a Turkish market place, do you recall?
Then of course it’s the ageless Manish Malhotra and his Bollywood’esque glamour that will be scorching the runway. Speaking of Bollywood, how can there be couture shows without the stars gracing the runway? The grapevine has it that it’s the dancing diva Madhuri Dixit herself who will be the show stopper for her favourite designer Anju Modi. Can’t wait to see her in person!
Art, creativity and fashion doesn’t just end with the designer clothes and the sets. The ornate and rich creatives, inspired by the colonial era for the PCJ DCW 2012, highlight the tools that help creating couture garments. Five tools for five days of the event. These are designed by the fashion industry stalwarts such as senior designers David Abraham, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Rohit Bal and Suneet Varma, all part of the FDCI creative committee and the graphic design company from Mumbai – Bombay Design House. Now that we have the schedule, it’s just the matter of what to wear for this event that will give me sleepless nights! I know I can conquer the world in the right style of shoes 😉 so let the style journey begin from there.
Meanwhile you watch this space for the latest, stylish and lots of fun and exciting posts that will bring fashion and art into your world!
