We bring you the best of runway from Day Three of Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013, with showings by Falguni & Shane Peacock and Raghavendra Rathore and showstoppers Neha Dhupia and Anil Kapoor.

Couturiers Falguni & Shane Peacock and Raghavendra Rathore put on an impressive display on the third day of Bridal Week's latest installment in the capital.

We start off with the designers of the moment, the Peacocks, and their latest line 'The Garden of Eden'.

In their own words, they wanted to take the audience through a "fashion paradise with bridal and evening gowns, full ghagras, anarkalis, farshi pyjamas, kalidaar saris teamed with bustier, halters and shrugs." The palette varied from pistachio to pink and gold, with floral motifs, vintage laces and their signature feathers embellishing the creations.

Seen here is model Deepti Gujral in a rich pink and red drape with gold accents.

The Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013 is set to last from July 23 to 28 in Delhi, followed by a schedule in Mumbai this coming October.

Inspired by "the glory days of the Raj", Raghavendra Rathore's latest collection sought to recapture the exuberance of the 1920s and offered up fusion designs for both the bride and the groom.

Refined, stylish dressing was the emphasis as models took to the runway in an assortment of creations in rich hues, such as this gargantuan red skirt and black jacket seen on Indrani Dasgupta.

The men's double-breasted jacket has been steadily making its way back after having taken a bit of a backseat after single-button and slim-lapel jackets became a rage. Rathore presents one in bright red.

Rathore hoped to showcase what he liked to call 'future bridal wear', one that would have a hint of the contemporary western while retaining elements of the Indian culture.
