The Lakme Fashion Week 2013 edition witnessed various bridal wear ensembles walk down the fashion aisle. Whilst being the most important piece of clothing for the bride, bridal wear has also been one of the most important features of Indian fashion. Let’s take a stroll down some of the most promising pieces from the show.
Playing with his usual colour palette Sabyasachi Mukherji’s collection presented this stunning red and gold piece with a black butta dupatta. Fully embellished yet classy, Sabyasachi designs know the art of balance bringing forth the best of all.
Best Bridal Collections at Lakme Fashion Week
To start with, the lime green lehenga by the designer on the ramp of Lakme Fashion Week looked like a subtle beauty walking down. The motifs, gotapatti work and the colour, works brilliantly for this gorgeous piece.
Adding to the designer’s glory, the peach blush colour lehenga with silver and gold gota work at the Lakme Fashion Week looked nothing less than royalty. The attire tops my list of must have Bridal dresses, if not for the D-day, then any other function of the celebrations.
We cannot decide what is more awesome- Dia Mirza in the red velvet bridal lehenga looking ethereal or the fabulous design by Shyamal and Bhumika. The colour and the embellishments add a glow to her beauty. From the velvet choli to the gold embellished and embroidered skirt, nothing looks ordinary in this piece. A little safe with the colour, but the work makes up for it.
Harshita Chaterjee’s design at the Lakme Fashion Week comes across as an inspiration for bridal wear dresses. The piece that looks like it holds on to an important part of history has so much character to it that anyone owning the beautiful orange piece inherits a golden thread in history and is a storyteller. Perfect for a bridal look, nothing seems to go against the attire. Sonali Bendre still looks like a young bride-to-be.
Another designer that holds credits for bringing an entire collection of gorgeous bridal wear to the Lakme Fashion Week was Bhairvi Jaikishan. Her mono coloured collection had both beautiful colours and lehengas to its credits. The designs were romantic in jovial colours, perfect for the young brides of today. The tulle, chiffon and georgette added more delicacy and flow to the pieces.
Elaborately worked designer sarees with velvet cholis was a style statement presented by Farah and Firdous at Lakme Fashion Week 2013. The Gen next designer’s embellishments consisted of pearls, stones and Swarovski work on the bridal wears. This collection seems to be a hit amongst people who like to take it to the next level on their special day.
Payal Singhal known for putting in just the right amount of Indian magic in her apparel showcased some brilliant designs at the Lakme Fashion Week 2013 edition. Perfect for the modern bride, the bridal dresses represented the woman of today, bold yet conservative, confident yet rooted and classy. Aditi Rao Hydari was amazing in those bridal wear lehengas and maharani styled blouse design.
The event was as big as any big fat Indian wedding and the clothes matched the occasion.
