It's an unsaid law that Sabyasachi Mukherjee is the go-to bridal fashion designer.
Indian bridal wear is constantly evolving.
From traditional and conventional designs, to innovative Westernised ensembles, bridal collections will always provide women with a selection of different styles.
Nowadays, royally elegant designs are the most sought after threads, and it’s no wonder why.
Indian fashion moguls are creating collections which comprise grandeur, grandiosity, class and tradition; a fashionable trend for this year.
From saree’s to lehengas, they leave no detail unthreaded.
DESIblitz takes a look at some of the most elegant Indian bridal collections, and what you should be looking out for, from budget buys, to high end designers
1. Budget Collections
Presenting their Ranisa Aaina & Ghunghat Bridal Collection, Sharon’s Couture comprises of swarovski & zardosi embroidery and bespoke, lavish materials.
The designs range from lehenga style ensembles to anarkalis, and much more.
Most of these designs follow a similar premise, that being luxury, sophistication, and glamour.
There is no room for simplicity in this collection, which is ideal for a bride who longs for that show-stopping outfit.
Each design is rich in colour and texture, and they certainly don’t skimp on prints.
Mosaic patterns flourish throughout each ensemble, creating an aesthetically wondrous scene.
They carefully transfuse threads together to create a spell bounding collection which mesmerises us completely.
A recent attended at the Asiana Bridal Show 2016 was Monga’s, who showcased their royal bridal collection on the catwalk.
They specialise in two categories, those being traditional attire and registry attire.
Both collections exude vast amounts of shimmer and sparkle, but differ in many ways.
Their traditional pieces are rich on the eye. Embroidery, sequins, and threading prevails amongst all of the designs.
The most popular colour in this collection is of course red, though hints of pink, blue and gold sometimes make an appearance.
Exquisite velvet materials create a soft, royal look for their lehengas, which is something many brides desire, particularly this year.
Their registry collection follows a more simplistic, demure theme with its designs.
It has a more chic and contemporary feel, ideal for the modern woman who desires a fusion of classy chic.
Another collection that was unveiled at the Asiana Bridal show 2016 was Traditions.
Eye catching ensembles were sent sashaying down the catwalk, and gave us a thorough insight into the trends of royal bridal wear for this year.
Traditions provides an authentic array of draped lehengas and dresses, which are heavily dominated with shades of ruby red.
With gold zardozi embroidery and panelled skirts, Traditions presented a timeless print which resonated through the hearts of all generations.
They artistically craft their outfits with a meticulous focus on extended trails, which have become extremely popular in recent years.
Rustic oranges were fused together into their designs, with velvet textured borders creating a noticeable contrast.
Their designs provide regality within bridal wear, all whilst remaining inexpensive.
2. High Fashion Collections
It’s an unsaid law that Sabyasachi Mukherjee is the go-to bridal fashion designer.
His designs are in a league of their own.
Asian weddings are the time when elaboration and excess is necessary, and Sabyasachi makes no exception of this within his bridal collections.
His designs have everything, from various colours, to different embroidered patterns, and even down to the type of threading.
Each bridal attire is entirely grandeur, and exquisitely royal with its stylistic designs.
Sabyasachi has always kept it elegant and easy, all whilst maintaining the magnificence of an elaborate wedding.
He provides the perfect bridal attire, with Bollywood stars such as Soha Ali Khan and Aamna Sharif wearing custom made designs for their own weddings.
Anju Modi believes a bride should be ‘fashion-forward in her dressing and traditional in her beliefs.’
Designs range from lehengas to sarees, but one noticeable similarity between each outfit is the importance of structure and silhouettes, which is a prevailing trend this year.
The trail of each attire noticeably extends outwards, creating a flattering figure for the bride.
Another aspect which Anju Modi encapsulates are deep, rich colours.
Blues, purples, and reds create a flourishing display of aesthetics, and a strong, powerful look for the bride.
In spite of this, their clothing simultaneously construct a soft, ethereal image when worn.
This year, it’s not just designers that are under the spotlight, but also specific trends and styles.
Gold is a massive choice of colour for this year’s bridal wear. Its refined look creates a vast sense of glamour, as well as looking classically stunning.
Its luxurious, rich tone adds elegance to any attire, which is why it’s such a popular colour to wear.
Pastels are also being immersed within the bridal wear family, specifically when used on airy materials such as nets and lace.
They are ideal for floral designs which emphasise the femininity of an outfit.
This trend is slightly contemporary, but if designed right, it can still maintain the classic, royal elements of an old school ensemble.
Whilst most designers pride themselves on constructing evolutionary outfits, magnificence is an important factor for wedding attires.
Nothing can, or will beat a classy, royal bridal outfit, and with so much selection out there, you really are spoiled for choice.
