Trend Report: Delhi Couture Week 2011

With 12 of India’s hottest designers showcasing their collections, Delhi Couture Week 2011 set the stage for this seasons hottest trends. From colors, fabrics, levels of bling and embroidery and overall design, follow Luxemi’s trend report to make sure you’re wearing this season’s best fashion:

The clear trends at Delhi Couture Week 2011 included:

 

Neutral Colors: Earthy tones of beige, browns and off-whites

 

Hues of the Season

Embroidery: We were happy to see that the use of embroidery was more minimal but still rich. Despite the prevalence of embroidery, gota and zardosi work seemed to be the favorites for many.

Minimal Embroidery -- Elegant Appeal

Decadent Fabrics: This season there was more emphasis on the fabric rather than loading every inch of fabric with some Indian craft. We noticed a lot of brocades mixed with peek-a-boo fabrics like net and ultra thin georgettes.

 

Sheer, Nets, Lace and Chiffon: All Fabrics to Stock

Progressive Designs: The designs were  progressive and simpler than what Indian brides are normally accustomed to, giving the collections a very global appeal.

The Modern Day Bride

Toned Down Bling: The bling quotient was taken down a notch to make way for more sophisticated and timeless pieces that represent  Indian fashion at its best.
