Lace is becoming more and more popular in Bollywood. Many Bollywood actresses such as Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor or Kajol, have been seen in delicate lace gowns and saris at recent events.
According to Indian designer Ranna Gill: “Lace is a very flirtatious and sensual fabric that has been around for generations. Not only is it feminine, the best part is that it can be dressed up or down according to the occasion".
Designer Niki Mahajan adds, “Lace dresses are big because of the worldwide popularity of sheer fashion. Short, asymmetric inners accentuate the effect.”
Mahajan emphasises that it is the drape and play of transparent and opaque that creates mystery. The trend has also swept international catwalks and red carpets.
