Day 3: Abraham & Thakore Presented the Modern Bride @ WIFW AW 13

Designer duo David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore took a modern and minimal perspective at Indian wedding dressing for their new collection at the ongoing Wills India Fashion Week on day three at Pragati Maidan New Delhi. The collection was sponsored by the Ministry of Textiles and has been created from hand woven brocades. The designers reinterpreted the traditional occasion dressing into a sleek, modern 21st century bridal wardrobe for the contemporary Indian woman.
Abraham said, “The modern India bride wasn’t things to be light and comfortable. Our take is very contemporary and suits the needs of the modern Indian woman”.
Abraham further added “Our design inspiration has been taken from the simple intertwining of threads- the wrap and the weft- to create a strong modern geometry of horizontals and verticals which are played out in the richness of silk and metallic”. The collection comprised of lehengas teamed up with crispy tailored top, trousers, sarees, which has been casually restyled while maintaining its classicism.
“Each fabric for each garment has been specially woven by Ekaya rooted in the rich textile heritage of Benaras. We have re imagined the classic Banarasi brocade, celebrated for richness and complexity, to create a collection that pays homage to the very nature and structure of weaving,” said Thakore.
