Fluid drapes and minimal accessories… For the bridesmaid, it’s all about comfort and style. While pastels are a great option for morning functions, a chilly winter evening calls for deep hues and luxurious fabrics. Here’s presenting our second look for the bride’s confidante and her go-to person during the wedding.

Yumiko is wearing embellished baroque top with silk skirt, Kartikeya (Rs1,05,000) along with carved wood earrings and stone encrusted cuff, Apala by Sumit, (price on request).
Nitin Kartikeya launched his label ‘Kartikeya’ in 2013 and is becoming known for designs that are Indian in essence yet modern in style. Fluid drapes and luxurious fabrics ensure that one does not need to accessorize much when wearing a Kartikeya design. At the Amazon India Fashion Week - Autumn/Winter 2016, the designer showcased a range of outfits with leather and velvet details along with sheer panels, intricate gold embroideries and sequins. For the cover shoot, we chose a silk skirt for the bridesmaid, paired with a green blouse that adds all the edge to the look.
Apala by Sumit
Handcrafted luxury jewellery with a contemporary edge, Sumit Sawhney created the brand Apala in the year 2006. Signifying ‘most beautiful’ in Sanskrit, Apala’s fine silver jewellery is combined with precious and semi-precious stones and layered with gold. Popular amongst celebrities, Sonam Kapoor was spotted wearing a pair of statement Apala earrings during a photoshoot at Cannes 2017. Blending bold with traditional, the statement pieces are not just eye grabbing but everlasting too.
