Lisa Haydon is not just Ridhi Mehra's muse. She is a dear friend as well.
That's why the Delhi designer chose the model-actor as a showstopper back in 2014 when she launched her first runway showing.
In 2022 Ridhi is ready with her maiden bridal couture collection Nooreza. Nooreza apparently means realism, reliability and sincerity.
She turned once more to the 'enigmatic, sensual, ethereal' Lisa to showcase her diaphanous assemblage.

And we're stoked to see a bride wear a dupatta like a cape. Very practical, less cumbersome and charming.

A sleeveless choli is a great idea -- being a bride is often hot, sweaty business.
