Ace designer Rina Dhaka has showcased her latest Couture collection on second day of Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013 at hotel Grand New Delhi. Rina’s theme of the show was Free Spirited Bride. Stars walked on the ramp added more glittering to the show. Actor Prateik Babbar and actress Amyra walked the ramp as a show stopper. Famous Model, VJ, singer and actress Sophie Choudhary walked as a sensuous diva in beautiful mirror work bustier with an attached panel extending till her navel added more glamour to the show.

Rina Dhaka’s collection philosophy based on “Silhouettes become smooth and precise, they add structure to the free flowing” for this particular collection. The set was so beautifully laden with lights that it reminded of a star studded sky at night. Sophie Chaudhary opened the show donned in a beautiful mirror work bustier with an attached panel extending till her navel, teamed up with appliqué patchwork sharara. Rina Dhaka’s collection- ‘Free Spirited Bride’ was a play of textures, embroidery, opulence and style with panache. Patchwork, gotha work and traditional kamdani work ruled her collection. Neutral shades were beautifully paired with brighter hues to give a stark contrast in the outfits. Flared pants and voluminous skirts were the integral part of her collection. High collared multicoloured tops, shimmering net shararas, short anarkalis teamed with beautiful patch work churidaars, appliqué work on net were some of the highlights of her collection. An eye catching yellow net saree with beautiful gotha work and sequinned frilled border in net left many jaws dropped in the audience. Pinks, reds, nudes, yellows with sheer shoulders were inspired by vintage monuments, jharokas and patti work. Sheer has always been her muse and this time around she beautifully experimented gold, stretch, satin, tulle and jail work to her trademark transparent churidaars to merge delicacy with comfort. Some of the noted ensembles from the collection were- nude jharoka embroidery with sharara wrinkle pants, patchwork pants with angarrakha, patchwork in panchranga, long coat in patti work, gold mokaish sari and also a sari in kamdani work
