As many as 11 top-notch designers will participate in the forthcoming Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week and they gave a sneak peek into their special creations at an introductory event here Tuesday.
Sonakshi Sinha was the special guest at the fashion event, which kick started with Miss India World Vanya Mishra walking the ramp in designer JJ Valaya's A-line burgundy-coloured suit with golden embroidery.
The five-day fashion show will be opened by Tarun Tahiliani in Mumbai Sep 12.
Also, Vikram Phadnis, designer duo Shantanu-Nikhil, Meera-Muzaffar Ali, Ashima-Leena, Narendra Kumar Ahmed, Falguni-Shane, Anjalee-Arjun Kapoor, Mandira Wirk, Jyotsana Tiwari and JJ Valaya, who is the closing designer, are participating in it.
Talking about grand finale, Valaya told IANS: "What I showed here was actually Burgundy and obviously red is intrinsic to the whole bridal thing, but my collection will see a lot of turquoise, a lot of flame colours."
The event took a starry turn when Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha sashayed down the ramp in a red net sari with a thin golden border created by Jyotsna Tiwari.
Asked when does she plan to get married, the 25-year-old said: "I don't know what I am doing day after tomorrow, how can I say that? Right now I am just glad wearing these beautiful bridal outfits."
The Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week has also announced the date for the fashion event in 2013 - it will take place in the capital from Aug 2 to Aug 7 and in Mumbai, will be held between Sep 20 to Sep 25.
