Veteran fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani commented on what he believes is the essence of Indian bridalwear. According to him, wearability is the key aspect which should be taken into account when designing wedding clothes. The designer said that, "You have to balance bridal wear so that people don't look like they are roaming around in armour."
"You have to use a lot of technique. This is how things can be made wearable, even though they (the clothes) are heavy. They must have the right construction, the right underwire ... this is what makes it," he added.
