2024 introduces the mini skirt trend
The anticipation and excitement surrounding weddings are not only about love and union but also about the evolving trends that shape the ceremonies and celebrations.
In a recent video, Chandan and Roop Singh from Bollywed took centre stage to showcase the hottest South Asian wedding trends of 2024.
Let’s explore this exclusive look at the Singh family’s perspectives and the upcoming wedding season.
With their fashion shop in Toronto’s Little India, the Singh family have been a cornerstone of the South Asian wedding industry for nearly four decades.
The family business started in 1984 and the journey has been documented through the lens of the Bollywed series.
As Chandan and Roop Singh share their insights into the upcoming wedding trends, 2024 promises to blend tradition with modernity.
Here are the key takeaways:
Fusion Looks Take Centre Stage
One of the standout trends for 2024 is the prevalence of fusion looks.
The traditional bridal lehenga transforms wide-legged pants, offering comfort without compromising on elegance.
The innovative touch extends to the blouse, where the traditional Dua is attached in a cape style at the back, combining real Indian hand couture with a modern flair.
The result is a unique ensemble that captures the essence of both worlds.
Mini Skirts for a Lighter Touch
For brides seeking a departure from the traditional heavy garments, 2024 introduces the mini skirt trend.
This creation adds a contemporary twist to the classic skirt and top combination.
With intricate Indian traditional embroideries adorning a mini skirt and a top featuring hanging beads and an attached cape, this fusion look offers both uniqueness and comfort.
A perfect choice for brides who wish to dance the night away without the weight of a heavy outfit.
Showstopper: Cherry Dust Dark Cherry
The pièce de résistance of the showcased trends is the breathtaking “Cherry Dust Dark Cherry” outfit.
A labour of love, this hand-embroidered masterpiece takes six months to create and comes with a price tag of $10,000.
The outfit, aptly named, features tone-on-tone embroidery, creating a rich, heavy look in a subtle and classy colour palette.
With a stunning back design, this outfit is designed for the bride who wants to make a grand entrance.
Whilst this custom piece is available in Canada, women across the world can take inspiration to build their very own cherry-based outfits.
