Tarun Tahiliani suggests that there will be a shift to "the refined luxury of toned down comfort" and the Indian bride will have the choice of "beautifully-fitted Indian pieces that allow her the same freedom to move."
Masaba Gupta, instead, predicts that "neon is on its way out" and pastel shades will do a comeback. Manish Malhotra lists blush pink, powder blue and violet as his favourites for 2014, "and some art-inspired, fun, floral prints for men and women, both." "Metallics and sequins will be big," Gupta adds, "... as will be Gatsby-inspired clothing and comic-book inspired prints."
She expects the trend shifting towards "garments that tell a story". By way of example, she says she's working on a Satya Paul line for which "the prints are inspired by an American artist living in India, but I can't say anymore just yet." According to Arjun Khanna we are headed back to the '70s look : "Retro and vintage have been well worn previously, but stylised versions of all those looks are coming back. Frock-suits popular in the '40s and '50s, will make a comeback and V-necked tees will be the rage."
