Day 3

Vogue Wedding Show 2016 ~ HighlightsThe final day of the Vogue Wedding Show had everyone skipping jewellery stalls from Khanna to Hazoorilal.

Couples were keen to meet with their favourite designers in search of the perfect wedding attire.

The two masterclasses of the day were unforgettable. Dermatologist Harshna Bijlani gave useful advice on skincare and pre-wedding treatments.

Nutritionist Kinita Kadakia Patel spoke about health hacks and the best way to get fit for a wedding.


The famous designer Sabyasachi focused on high quality traditional Indian wear.

He is known for creating bridal wear for women who are ‘self-aware’, ‘in touch with her heritage and embraces heirlooms with panache’.

He envisions grooms who wear his designs to be ‘someone who prefers understated elegant wedding wear with high quality fabric, finish and embroidery’.

His collection presented three strong themes – whimsical, artsy and bohemian. The rest were influenced by European glamour and rooted in the deep rich textiles of traditional Indian gowns.

He says: “This August, completed 11 years to my label and 26 years to my film career.

“I think for my label to be where it is today, the background of working for that many years in the moves and doing a lot of clothes I feel changed the way styling is looked, in Bollywood and made a lot of you guys all over the world aware of Indian clothes.”

The fourth edition of Vogue Wedding Show 2016 was truly unforgettable and a luxurious, eventful experience. We look forward to more innovative and glamorous designs in 2017!
