Fashion weeks are back (Long Live Fashion Shows!) After FDCI X LFW, which gave us five days of fashion, we were treated to yet another important fashion week of the country that is Bombay Times Fashion Week. The recently concluded fashion event was the springboard for new trends, silhouettes, and colors – and who doesn’t love a bit of variety when it comes to fashion and styling.
The three-day fashion event showcased some stunning bridal collections to consider for weddings. So let’s take a look at the 12 best looks that caught our attention – and made us say ‘ding dong’ in the boomy voice of Val Garland from Netflix’s Glow Up!
