Kolkata the 'City of Joy', after a dry spell of fashion events for 1 & half years finally received its mega fashion event - Gitanjali Lifestyle Kolkata Couture Fashion Week. The Event was produced and organised by Idea Weavers Pvt Ltd at Swissotel Kolkata a 5 star Venue. The 4 day Event ended this Sunday 12th Sep 2010.

Designer Neeta Lulla opened the Kolkata Couture Fashion Week on 9th Sep 2010 with her bridal couture. Bling is Neeta Lulla's middle name and the designer lived up to her image at the opening show of the Kolkata Couture Fashion Week 2010 on Thursday evening at Swissotel. As the strains of Aao huzoor tumko… filled the room, models sashayed down the ramp in ethnic Indian clothes. Not-too loose chiffon patialas paired with short bandhgalas and flowing Anakarli kurtas teamed with fitted churidars made up the opening sequence.

As the show progressed, the colour palette moved from pastels to brighter hues of red, orange, blue, black and pink. Kurtas, lehngas (fitted, tiered, ruched, A-line...) paired with both cholis and long tunics and saris made up the collection. Jackets were paired with saris and lehngas. The fabrics included nets, chiffons, lace and heavier silks. The embellishments were zardosi, resham work, gota and some more zardosi. The collection was big on layering. Rituparna Sengupta was the showstopper in a rani pink brocade corset paired with a layered skirt (black lace over a blue skirt and then a drape tied at the waist).

Designer Anju Modi a founding member of FDCI ended the Day 2 with showcase of her Bridal Couture Line that payed tribute to the Royal Gharanas of Benares and attempted to contemporarise traditional crafts like Chanderi Weaving, Kota Fabrics, Varanasi Zari work and Bandhani printing.

Aslam Khan presented by popular brand MOH MAYA had 3 of the super models of India - Indrani Dasgupta, Sonalika Sahay and Candice Pinto sashaying the ramp in rich embroided saris. The star attraction of the day was 'Khosla ka Ghosla' and 'Jhankar Beats' actor Sanjay Suri walking the ramp for 'Wrap' by Siddharth Saigal in a beautiful pashmina.

Day 3 was opened by the youngest designer in the Country - Prachi Barve. The 12 year old designer showed a line that was made keeping in mind the pre bridal functions. The other designers who showed their Bridal Couture collection included - Kishan Bagri, Virtues by Ashish, Viral & Vikrant, Soltee by Sulakshana Monga and Kapil & Monica. Designer Sulakshana Monga wooed the audience with her garments that highlighted the layering techniques, embellishments and interesting surface texturing of antique sequences and zari, dabka and bead work. Kapil and Monica took the audience by surprise by introducing Mughda Godse as their showstopper who looked absolutely stunning in richly embellished lehenga.

Day 3 ended with Gitanjali Jewels showcase where designers Wendell Rodrick and Archana Kochar collections were used in conjunction with the Gitanjali jewellery. Diana Hayden brought in exclusively by Archana Kochar was the showstopper for the Finale Show and looked the perfect bride.
