Actor Anil Kapoor, who was the show stopper at the India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) for designer Raghavendra Rathore says that there was no pressure while walking the ramp. The 56-year-old looked dapper in a black kurta teamed with white churidar. This was teamed with a golden embroidered sleeveless short jacket, which gave a festive look to the outfit.
Anil Kapoor was very comfortable on the ramp and was grateful to his designer for the outfit. "I thank you all for appreciating my look but it is all Raghavendra's effort and vision. The credit goes to him and his team. I enjoyed walking the ramp as the clothes weren't very formal. The way it has been done it is very innovative, simple and everybody looked very comfortable," the actor said.
"There was no pressure while walking the ramp, I think the idea is to have fun. You can't take these things very seriously," he added.
The Kapoor admits that it is his stylish daughter who keeps a tab on his wardrobe. "My daughter always suggests me on fashion trends. She keeps a check on what I wear and often disapproves if she does not like it. Raghavendra is a family friend and for this outfit also my daughters discussed the attire with him," explained Anil.
At the IBFW, the designer for the first time moved away from traditional black and white for men and experimented with bright colours like pink, magenta, burgundy, royal blue, maroon and red for his collection.
Raghavendra went with bandhgala dresses, long embroidered jackets over gowns and sarees, dhoti pants with short jackets for women. "My collection is without bling and futuristic. It aims at what the bride and groom will look like after 10 years. I have purposely used bright colours for men this time so that it brings about a change in their look. Since they never had choices besides black, brown and white, so I wanted to experiment," the designer stated.
