We’ve seen so many things in 2020 get ruined cuz of the pandemic but the one thing which truly got better was the fact that India Couture Week went digital and everyone could witness the latest designer couture collections from the comfort of their homes. This year designers like Amit Aggarwal, Gaurav Gupta, Falguni & Shane Peacock and a few more showcased their collections. We have to say that every single one of them has introduced wearable couture designs which are chic and can work for any kind of wedding function that a bride wants to have. 

While all the pieces are stunning, we have picked out the ones which got our heartbeats fast. Scroll below and maybe you find your dream wedding outfit ladies!  

#ICW 2020 Collection

Gaurav Gupta’s "The Name is Love"

Gaurav Gupta’s “The Name is Love”  was the opening show of ICW ‘20. This show was dedicated to love; love for self, love for all genders, love for all body shapes, love for all ethnicities and love for all sexualities. From the love army to the direction, GG’s fashion movie which showcased his couture ‘21 collection is by far my favourite show from the whole fashion week because of numerous reasons. Firstly, Gaurav Gupta stayed true to his designs and we got to see some beautifully constructed gowns and lehengas. Secondly, this show had the most diverse casting. And lastly, one can go to GG’s website and find every little detail about this show. 

Scroll below to find some stunning pieces that you can pick for your cocktail function or your wedding day!

Manish Malhotra’s "Ruhaaniyat"

MM’s latest couture line is an ode to the Indian craftsmen and our diverse heritage. You will be able to spot a lot of intricate work in his couture line. There’s so much offered in this collection of Manish Malhotra that it was rather fitting to have him close the India Couture Week 2020. We particularly love the outfit that Jhanvi Kapoor wore cuz of the trail and the beautiful colour. Even the menswear is stupendous looking with little detailing and the use of pastel colours.
