Day 1 : Shantanu and Nikhil ‘To Die For’

Shantanu & Nikhil titled there collection ‘To Die For’ 

Their press release say's "Gold, in its different shades, would be the new black"

The Show

You can imagine how happy that made me :D , with expectations quite high Shantanu and Nikhil wowed us completely with the use of gold leaf patterns and booties, but I personally was disappointed with the use of so much white....bridal wear + white I would say no. However if your having a christian wedding or are not really fussy with colors the garments are an absolute delight.





The above 2 are the white+gold combo that I loved the most! Not sure if they would make the same impact if they were in any other color...

Over all it was the details that caught my eyes..


I love this back. Since it hides bits and parts one can wear it even if you don't have a perfectly flawless back.

No jewelry required!


I loved these hand jewelry they had, so innovative and fun!

Not sure if a bride and make this work on the D-day but for pre-functions ?!?

Or

Maybe just take inspiration...like the picture below one can imagine you wearing a nice cuff with matching rings on 3-4 fingers without chains attached, or chain attached only to the middle ring with the rest being simply rings of similar designs, so it still gives the look of a haatphool without being one
