The year of 2014 has been an exciting year for Indian fashion. The year saw the emergence of many trends that broke the mould in Indian bridal wear.
Indian designers presented some amazing innovations and designs that changed the face of Indian bridal wear.
Here are some of the trends in Indian bridal wear during the past year that made us sit up and take notice.
Fashion has come a full circle and has brought back lace in outfits in a big way. Indian bridal designers liberally borrowed this trend to create ravishing Indian bridal wear in lace that is classic and fashionable.
Lace creates an aura of timeless style and understated elegance. When dressed up with sparkling elements like sequins, beads and zari, Indian brides dressed in lace outfits are a sight to behold. Take a look at this gleaming saree from our collection that will prove this to you. The saree and the strappy blouse, when paired with ethnic jewellery is a great choice for the modern Indian bride.
A major trend that emerged in 2014 is of Indian gowns. They beautifully combine Indian craft techniques like zardosi, aari embroidery and gota patti work with modern silhouettes.
This is a masterstroke by Indian designers of cleverly encouraging traditional Indian techniques while also catering to the ever increasing demand of gowns among Indian brides. These gowns are a hot favourite for cocktail parties and beach weddings where brides show off their fun and fashionable side.
This gorgeous pink gown by Jyotsna Tiwari with billowing tulle skirt has a stunning bodice with aari embroidery. This amalgamation of Indian workmanship and modern silhouette creates a splendid outfit that is a must-have in every bride’s trousseau.
Gone are the days when Indian bridal wear used fabrics in a handful of colours. Brides would pick from red, green or yellow sarees or lehengas from the limited colour choices they had. Heralding a sea change from the norm, the past year saw Indian bridal outfits being splashed with a bevy of colours.
Brides took a bold step to experiment with vibrant and pastel colours alike. We give this trend thumbs up as they look fantastic on traditional Indian clothes.
