Are you set to walk down the aisle this summer but confused about what to wear? Archana Kochhar offers a solution with her new bridal collection - Summer Bride 2012.
"Looking different and glamorous at wedding is the dream of every young girl and my collection will satisfy the needs of women of today. My design philosophy revolves around making my client's personality shine and with my latest bridal collection. The girls will not only get a chance to look traditional but glamorous too," Kochhar told IANS.
The designer is quite popular among Bollywood glitterati - Kangana Ranaut, Ayesha Takia, Ali Khan">Soha Ali Khan, Zeenat Aman, Mughda Ghodse, Dia Mirza and Mahima Choudhary are among her clients. She feels new age women are open to experimentation when it comes to keeping their wardrobe fashionable.
"Today's women don't want that signature red and maroon shades and this is why my colour palette revolves around shades of neon pink and orange minimally embellished with applique work and sprinkled with crystal stones," she added.
Kochhar's bridal collection offers kaftans, lehenga-cholis, saris and anarkali suits in fabrics like fluid viscose georgette, silk, chiffon, colorado, net, satin and velvet.
"I love to make and design grand clothes. I believe that clothes are a celebration; they bring joy to us and bring out happy and exquisite moments when one wears them and this is what the summer bride will do," she added.
Price starts from Rs.50,000 and the new collection is available at Kochhar's store in Mumbai.
