Wedding bells around the corner

Even though the big fat weddings are on with full shor-sharaaba, the conscientious lot are slowly adapting to the subtle elegance of understated wedding

. The rich Jewel tones are back with a vengeance after a couple of pastel seasons, in all fine fabrics – the rich Silks, Kinkhwabs, Velvets and Luxe.

* Colour: Many of the designers are going back to pastels this wedding season with shades of crème, with dainty floral designs for the fresh and soft look. Brides looking to go all out, seem to be leaning towards embellished gowns in royal colours, fitted with mirror or intricate crystal work to guarantee a breath-taking entry to the mandap. Gota Patti work is back this year and seen in both blouses with plain colour and in lehengas.

* Cut and fabric: In terms of cut and style, new age brides are looking at crop tops, cape jackets to team up with their sarees or lehengas. Besides the usual heavy silks, satin and velvet, among people attending weddings, Organza seems to be picking up as a fabric for its light and breezy look.

Floral designs always have a dreamy effect on this material and if it’s a saree, try teaming with a solid colour satin blouse. If it’s a kurta try straight cut satin pants for that super glamorous 21st century look however, if it is a Lehenga you are looking at, then wear it in the form of a plain satin well fitted blouse to bring that Oomph look.

* Tradition and sustainable fashion to be in sync: With people more conscious of looking at sustainable products in many aspects of their lives, they want to introduce that message for weddings as well with brides looking at recycling old wedding sarees in the family paying homage to that “something old” sentiment by making it into a lehenga.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
