This designer wants to design Alia Bhatt’s wedding jewellery



The country is going through a struggle to survive the second wave of the deadly coronavirus and most of the wedding plans have been put on hold. But besides learning from the mistakes of not being prepared well enough for a pandemic of this magnitude, each one of us is using this time at home to ponder over the present with a hope of a better tomorrow. If your wedding too got postponed, it’s time to make plans about what all will you do for a wedding that takes place in better circumstances. On the sidelines of the grave second wave of COVID-19, we had a light conversation with Rahul Luthra, of Ra Abta by Rahul Luthra to ponder over future brides and their jewellery, and a little about Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt.

The popular designer who has designed wedding jewellery for a lot of celebrity brides began by speaking about the hot wedding jewellery trends. “The quintessential brides of 2021 are looking for something off beat & unique.

Many brides are fascinated with revived old age trends. Borla with sheeshpatti is the new favourite for brides.

Meenakari in pastel shades goes very well with summer day weddings. In these times of pandemic, multi functional jewellery/detachable Jewelery ~ like a Mathapatti which later can be worn as a necklace, a nath which can also be used as a tikka later etc are hot favourites with clients,” claimed Rahul.

When asked whether wedding jewellery has taken a dip during COVID-19, Rahul agreed and said that with recent government guidelines on limited gatherings at the weddings, brides-to-be are favouring postponed weddings but definitely want a lavish one, but at the same time if we talk about demand for jewellery, it has picked up manifold overseas said the designer

Speaking about what according to him has been the learning point for all jewellery designers during the pandemic, Rahul said one has learnt that “less is more”. “Old can be classic too. In such situations we have suggested to our brides to redo there heirloom pieces instead of investing a lot in new ones. A little change here and there makes there old jewellery completely unique and new,” added Rahul.

According to Rahul, reviving old pieces helps keep expenditure in check. “As a designer, my team has been working extensively on multifunctional & detachable jewelry forms. For example: A Hathphool can be split into a bracelet and ring later. A choker can also be used as a bajuband/hairband etc,” suggested the designer.

The man who has glammed up a lot of celebrity brides had to be asked about a Bollywood bride he would like to design jewellery for. “It was my honour to design bridal accessories for Deepika Padukone. Well, next in row is Alia Bhatt and I would love to design something for her big day,” quipped Rahul.

The jewellery specialist signed off revealing his future plans, that of shooting the label’s next campaign for its upcoming collection.
