Gorgeous bridal wear opens Couture Week
September 17, 2008

Kicking off the inaugural show of the HDIL India Couture Week on September 16, was celebrated designer Ritu Kumar. Kumar showcased a vibrant line of Indian formal/bridal wear with heavily embellished chania-cholis, shararas, saris and salwar kurtas in rich tussar silks and crepes all making an appearance.

Vying for attention, apart from the gorgeous designs, were actresses Priyanka Chopra [Images] and Neha Dhupia [Images] sashaying down the ramp in breath-taking ensembles. Seen here is Ritu Kumar (centre) accompanied by actress sisters Riya (R) and Raima Sen [Images].

The event that promises wearable made-to-order clothes at realistic prices will continue until Sunday, September 21 with leading Indian couturiers including JJ Valaya, Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Malhotra and Rohit Bal presenting their lines.
