It’s that time of the year again, when couture takes over full throttle. And this time, it returns in a bigger, better avatar as Hindustan Times and Sunil Sethi Design Alliance presents Fashion Design Council of India’s India Couture Week 2018. The fashion extravaganza, that ran from July 25 to July 29, at the Taj Palace, Delhi was a unique showcase of game-changing glamour, presenting top couturiers from the world of fashion - Anju Modi, Amit Aggarwal, Rohit Bal, Reynu Taandon, Tarun Tahiliani, Shyamal and Bhumika, Shane and Falguni Peacock, Rahul Mishra, Pallavi Jaikishan and Suneet Varma.

From clothes that spelled grandeur, and sets that could give big-ticket productions a run for their money, there was a lot more in store. “It is undoubtedly the best fashion event in the country and having Hindustan Times as a partner this year would take the fashion extravaganza to the next level of importance and unprecedented showcase of the event,” said Sunil Sethi.

Designer Reynu Taandon agreed with Sunil. She said, “The week showcased bridal trends for 2018. My collection was all about young brides who want an amalgamation of traditional and modern. All the designers are looking forward to the celebration and catering to the brides-to-be,” she adds. On this, designer Suneet Varma said, “The India couture week is one of only three couture weeks in the world. India has a massive couture tradition and clientele and I am super excited to be part of the week this year!”
