New Delhi, Oct 8 (IANS) Rooted in tradition and inspired by Indian beauty and sensuality, acclaimed designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee is set to showcase his "Bridal Sutra" collection at the grand finale of the Lakme Fashion week Oct 20-24 in Mumbai.
"This collection is all about going back to the roots and dress up an Indian bride with an Indian feel. I have tried to reinvent our glorious Indian tradition and use it as it always was - grand and opulent," Mukherjee said at a press conference here Wedensday.
"There is a unique beauty about the Indian bride - her sensuality, un-boxed expression... and my collection will focus on this," he added.
Lakme's Bridal Sutra make-up range draws its inspiration from the rituals and joy of a wedding, along with the splendid colors of Indian jewels.
Elaborating on this new range, Lakme's advisor Anil Chopra said: "Our legacy of beauty and fashion continues with another season celebrating the creativity of the contemporary Indian woman, along with the rich heritage and tradition.

The Lakme Bridal Sutra winter collection has lipsticks in rich colours inspired by precious stones in eight shades. The eye pots are available in three shades - jade, topaz and quartz. Liquid eye liners in seven shades of precious metals are one of the highlights and the traditional 'sindoor' (vermillion) gets a contemporary twist with three different colours that can also be used for innovative body art.
The collection starts at Rs.85 for nail paints and goes up to Rs.295 for eye pots and lip chrome.
