Shakuntlam at the Asiana Bridal fashion show

If I had to describe Shakuntlam's collection in one word, I could very easily say "Churidars" and you'd get the picture! We'd seen a few of these type of outfits before, in Frontier Bazar's catwalk collection, but Shakuntlam had a lot more. In fact, most of their show was churidar suits, and they started off with this baby pink number which featured a very cool beaded-back:

I like the colour of this red and gold outfit, although I've never been a big fan of tops which frame the chest in that way!!

Next were some outfits which show a bit more skin, check out the open back of this outfit:

Even more daring was this outfit, I really don't think the top looks good! but if you just look at the skirt, I really like the embroidery and colour combination.

Finally, there was a sari! I only managed to get a side shot of it, but I can tell you that the bold embroidery and glitziness of it reminded me of the outfits my mum used to wear in the late 80s/early 90s and I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing!!

All those churidar suits weren't very bridal in my opinion, nor was the sari but I have a feeling that Shakuntlam were perhaps aiming their outfits at the 75% of the audience who weren't the bride ie. friends, sisters etc.
