The latest trend: Indo-Western bridal styles

     Next

Designer Pria Kataaria Puri held back-to-back showings in Mumbai over the weekend. The first, held on December 12, put a number of red carpet specials on display alongside jewellery by TBZ Nirmal Zaveri. Then, on December 13, Puri showcased a tantalising array of Indo-Western fusion bridalwear in association with Gitanjali Jewels, and had Bollywood starlet Raima Sen don the showstopper.

With Indo-Western bridals being the big trend this wedding season, it's no surprise that the designer decided to go with the flow for her first trousseau line. Raima did the honours in a resplendent red lehenga sporting rich gold embroidery.
