Rimple & Harpreet Narula
Revisiting ancient Indian workmanship and giving it a contemporary twist, that’s what makes the designer duo a popular choice for most brides-to-be. A mix of kitsch and couture, the designers take an out-of-the box approach to colours and fabrics. Breaking away from stereotypes, this month's cover shoot features a grey bridal lehenga to give the bride a refreshing and unconventional 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. Blending bold with traditional, the statement pieces are not just eye grabbing but everlasting too.
