Staying true to his signature style, this bridal collection featured flora and fauna that featured 3D butterflies, jaali work, sequin detailing and embellishments. 

Weightless, timeless and contemporary – Mishra’s collection fits the bill for all the millennial brides looking for fuss-free trousseau while Aggarwal’s couture features the best of futuristic designs keeping in mind the carbon footprint.

Though both the designers played a safe game sticking to what they know, Amit and Rahul made a conscious effort of paying an ode to nature by elevating their signature style.
