The recently held Lakme Fashion Week shows took India’s wedding culture and bridal fashion beyond the bounds of traditionalism. The bridal fashion of India is still ethnic in look though modern in cut and style. Both ace designers and the budding ones redefined it through their avant-garde creativity at Lakme India Fashion Week 2015, but most of their signature ensembles reflected oomph of ethnic charm with raw appeals. In this exclusive beat, Indian Eagle takes on the beauty and diversity of India’s bridal fashion from a few leading designers’ repertoires.
Nargis Fakhri in the Suneet Varma Show
At Lakme India Fashion Week 2015, the Suneet Varma Show was a signature statement on the bridal fashion of India. Glamorized by the face of Nargis Fakhri, the Suneet Varma collection of bridal lehengas in crimson red and golden yellow is an interface between retro and metro bridal fashions. Nargis Fakri, the showstopper for Suneet Varma, was draped in a richly embellished traditional bridal outfit teamed with stunning kundan jewellery. The magnificent ensemble from Sunnet Varma’s repertoire for Lakme Fashion Week 2015 bears out to the agelessness of India’s unique bridal fashion culture.
Ileana Dsouza in the Anushree Reddy Show
In contrast to the Suneet Varma show was the showcase of lively bridal lehengas with minimalistic details by the designer duo Anushree Reddy and Arpita Mehta. Weaved of satin with layers of net, the bridal lehengas in soft shades of pink, yellow and gold are accentuated with silver embellishments. The face of the Anushree Reddy and Arpita Mehta show was Ileana Dsouza in a set of pastel pink lehenga, crystal-studded blouse and netted dupatta with zardousi border. The collection is suitable for the happy-go-lucky women who prefer minimalism to extravagance.
Kareena Kapoor in the Anamika Khanna Show
Anamika Khanna’s bridal ensembles for Lakme India Fashion Week 2015 made a distinct departure from the traditional bridal fashion of India. Anamika Khanna’s signature saree and lehenga designs in glittering white and intimate black stole the show with the contemporary brides of Indian origin across the world. Bollywood actresses Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Pudukone and Jacqueline Fernandez graced the Anamika Khanna show with their dazzling appearance in her embroidered, embellished, elegant black & white ensembles.
Shabana Azmi in the Mandira Bedi Show
Actress Mandira Bedi who debuted as a fashion designer in 2013 showcased her line of traditional Indian sarees in khadi silk. The brilliance of colors from the kaleidoscopic palette is the mainstay of the Mandira Bedi show at Lakme India Fashion Week 2015. Somewhat retro and somewhat metro, Mandira’s khadi silk fashion is a perfect miasma of simplicity in design, richness in texture, and effervescence in color. Veteran actress Shabana Azmi in a sunset orange saree with golden border walked the ramp as showstopper for Mandira Bedi.
The Soumitra Mondal Show
Designer Soumitra Mondal wooed the fashion critics with his simple definition of Indian ethnic fashion at Lakme India Fashion Week 2015. Soumitra’s signature lehengas are inspired by the beauty of anarkali fashion. The ethnic fashion by Soumitra is a sensuous magic of the few soothing colors in his palette. The delicate zardousi work on the pastel shades of fiery oranges and creamy white turned the heads on. The aura of sophistication that his ensembles exude is simply unmatched!
Viday Balan in the Gaurang Show
The ethnic fashion of India with raw appeals in mélange with urban styles was the show-stealing attraction of Lakme India Fashion Week 2015. Designer Gaurang unveiled his latest collection of saree and lehenga designs inspired by the rural arts of India. Dipped in pastel shades of yellow, red, orange, purple and magenta, Gaurang’s signature ethnic ensembles exude a raw charm to woo the women with artistic senses and aesthetic tastes. Vidya Balan in a soft pink saree with broad golden border was the showstopper for him.
