This time she is different. This time she is decidedly veering in a new direction which is not quite conventional. She is assertive & strong yet soft, tender and sensitive. She wants to soar the skies and shine with her own individuality but she knows the earth will always ground her. She is the bride of 2015 – a modern Indian girl who is sexy, beautiful yet coy. She is well travelled and thus aware of her surroundings.
I admire the way she is ready to opt for an amalgamation of Indian silhouettes with Western sensibilities. She wants a sensuous twist to look her best. Today the whole traditional dressing has become all about dressing with a twist.
So does that mean you will see colors other than the traditional ones? The answer is a big fat YES! Colors form a crucial part of the wardrobe of the new age bride. From red to hot pink, burnt orange to emerald green and even royal blue, you will find it all.
Fashion has always reinvented itself. This year gold and mirror work are ruling. The bling factor with Gota and Tilla embroidery, Resham knots and Chantilly lace, Swarovski crystals and Zardozi motives also have grabbed everyone’s attention.
I have always ensured that the detailed craftsmanship rules to every inch and finesse. I love to play with a wide variety of fabrics – from the suppleness of chiffon to the sensuality of the chantilly lace and tulle, from the aristocratic elegance of velour and silk to the raw texture of chanderi – they all mesmerise me and I advocate the use of these to the bride of today.
All these elements put together give her an alluring attitude. The look on her face will explain it all. She has waited her entire life for this big dreamy day. She knows she is in her best attire and is looking her finest. She is well aware of the compliments that are going to come her way. She is the perfect today’s bride!
