I cannot imagine IBFW not being the first and last stop for a prospective Bride and/or Groom!

Suneet Varma:
I am pleased to be associated with the India Bridal Fashion Week and very excited to showcase my Fall'13 collection. We are a nation of people who have had the tradition of having things ‘made to measure’ or ‘personally customized’, so couture and its benefits are not lost on us. The Bridal Couture week in Delhi and Mumbai are well planned and provide the designers with an interesting platform to showcase the collection well before the season begins and so it’s good for business. I am happy to be part of this robust partnership and look forward to many more years of success.
Tarun Tahiliani:
Glimpses of shimmering gold, hues of soft pastels and a whimsical frothiness are reminiscent of an era of charm and elegance. “Creating couture which keeps distinctive Indian crafts alive, while exploring visions in sparkling crystal and carat, reflects emotions that give shape to sensuous, elegant and bespoke luxury for brides, grooms and their families as well as for other occasions. This collection will be living, breathing heritage, married with the fresh vibrancy and essence of modern India.
