Wedding bells around the corner

Even though the big fat weddings are on with full shor-sharaaba, the conscientious lot are slowly adapting to the subtle elegance of understated wedding

. The rich Jewel tones are back with a vengeance after a couple of pastel seasons, in all fine fabrics – the rich Silks, Kinkhwabs, Velvets and Luxe.

Anjali Sharma, Chief Designer and Owner at French Curve and Deepa Reddy, Founder at The Open Trunk give some ideas on how to opt for right colour, cut and fabric while deciding the bridal wear.

* Colour: Many of the designers are going back to pastels this wedding season with shades of crème, with dainty floral designs for the fresh and soft look. Brides looking to go all out, seem to be leaning towards embellished gowns in royal colours, fitted with mirror or intricate crystal work to guarantee a breath-taking entry to the mandap. Gota Patti work is back this year and seen in both blouses with plain colour and in lehengas.

* Cut and fabric: In terms of cut and style, new age brides are looking at crop tops, cape jackets to team up with their sarees or lehengas. Besides the usual heavy silks, satin and velvet, among people attending weddings, Organza seems to be picking up as a fabric for its light and breezy look.

Floral designs always have a dreamy effect on this material and if it’s a saree, try teaming with a solid colour satin blouse. If it’s a kurta try straight cut satin pants for that super glamorous 21st century look however, if it is a Lehenga you are looking at, then wear it in the form of a plain satin well fitted blouse to bring that Oomph look.

* Tradition and sustainable fashion to be in sync: With people more conscious of looking at sustainable products in many aspects of their lives, they want to introduce that message for weddings as well with brides looking at recycling old wedding sarees in the family paying homage to that “something old” sentiment by making it into a lehenga.

Off screen, Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan slay the salwar kameez look, setting a fashion statement that the new generation may otherwise consider ‘bygone’. Patialas and Palazzos may come and go, but there’s something evergreen about salwars, say style experts.

Mansi Gupta, Co-founder, Tjori, says the salwar has been tweaked over generations to suit the needs of women.

“The simple salwar was first made into the Patiala salwar, later they were made as dhoti salwar and then harem salwar or palazzo salwar…all these modifications to stay in the latest fashion trend. But it is a dynamically structured garment that shall never go out of fashion.

“Ask the average Indian women what would be their go to outfit when they have to go out or stay home, I can assure most of them will say a simple salwar kameez. The salwar is one of the very few Indian garments that hasn’t lost its ethnic value, and are forever,” Gupta told IANS.

In a latest on-screen stint, Sayani Gupta has been seen sporting salwars in “Article 15”. As Bollywood celebrities have quite an influence on driving the mass fashion narrative in the country, who knows the classic salwar may begin to be seen more frequently.

Sreyashee Halder, Design Head, W, said: “The comeback of salwars are inevitable – we can already see it becoming a hot favourite with designers and in the new age, the salwar will take a renewed form. We will see variations and innovations in that silhouette.

“Like in every fashion cycle – silhouettes and trends come back – this trend has also begun its journey back as it is going to be a refreshing change to the tight-fitted churidar. It also has its pros and cons and an extremely comfortable silhouette.”

She, however, feels that unlike a churidar which makes one look slim and tall, this silhouette is not as flattering. And so, “salwars will be back but may not stay for eternity”, she said.
