PIX: What Indian brides will wear this wedding season
We bring you a preview of what will be on offer at the Aamby Valley India Bridal Week starting today.
It's almost showtime -- the Aamby Valley India Bridal Week commences this evening and all the designers are just about done with their fittings.
We managed to get a sneak peek behind the scenes -- here's what you can expect to see on the ramp!
If there's one thing you can't expect from Manish Arora, it's traditional togs. The maestro will be offering up his own version of bridalwear, a glimpse of which he offers here.
