RCKC Indian Bridal Show 2005
the oldest most reputed name in Indian fashion, established in 1905,
RCKC nurtures a legacy of unmatched craftsmanship and consistently
RCKC London established by Radhika and Amit Rastogi has carved an extremely
important niche for itself in the United Kingdom.
Having showcased the biggest names in Indian fashion from JJ Valaya
to Rohit Bal in the past, RCKC London now brings to you a fashion extravaganza
like never before! The RCKC Bridal Exhibition ’05 showcases designs
by one of India’s leading designers, Anjali and Arjun Kapoor.
After bringing many Indian designers to the London fashion scene, Radhika
and Amit Rastogi introduced Anjalee Kapoor to the UK market for the
first time. Anjalee Kapoor is a leading bridal designer in India who
has had many shows in Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Dubai.
The store, which is based on Ealing Road, was decorated in a very eastern
feel with beads and floral arrangements. Once the show began the audience
was left startled as they were presented with one spectacular outfit
after the other. Scalloped edged two-piece sarees and heavy embellished
blouses were followed by figure hugging churidar suits. The presentation
of the flowing skirts with armbands and neck pieces was very cleverly
choreographed with raunchy salsa moves as the audience cheered on.
The most awaited designs were saved for the last, as intricately embroidered
lehengas were flaunted in eye-catching fuchsias, pea greens, peaches
were kept well entertained as cocktails and snacks were circulated
in bounty. Some well-known faces such as Mrs Prabha Chopra, Mr Sandeep
Sharma, Mrs Sangeeta Gupta, Mrs Meena Sethi and Ashoka and Anushka
Dhawan were also present at the event along with Anjalee Kapoor herself.
Let us hope that Radhika and Amit Rastogi of RCKC London keep bringing
us many more admirable creations of designers in such awe striking
