Portraying his true bong self, Joy Mitra’s collection oozed of traditional, age old techniques of intricate embroidering. From flowing anarkalis and tunics with ornate embroidery, each and every attire had a delicately elegant Bengali look.

The frilly silhouettes with golden zari work and black borders looked classy!

Dhoti bottoms, crop tops, jacket tops and draped anarkalis were some of the other highlights of the show.

There was a bit of men’s ethnic wear too…

And of course, how could I miss out on the Show Stopper for the evening: Raima Sen!

Her attire was absolutely stunning, though, it was in complete contrast to the creme, black and gold thematic line of the collection.

Here’s a closer look at what she wore… Fit to be worn by a bride, isn’t it?!
