The wedding saga holds an overwhelming significance for the bride and groom hence, an impeccably dapper accoutre befitting the occasion is considerably important. It is a fairy tale affair and so the dress has to be straight out of heaven and who better than Sabyasachi to go to for an exquisite and gorgeously created lehenga. So for this joyous occasion I have decided to explore lehengas from Sabyasachi’s latest Firdaus Collection. The creative genius that Sabyasachi is, he has picked the best design ideas, embroidery techniques and colour palette that have translated into a collection of such magnificence and brilliance, that every piece of apparel in it is a handcrafted masterpiece worthy of being an heirloom.
Today’s modern bride is strong, independent and passionate about everything in life and she knows that while everything else in this world is fleeting and temporary this moment real and everlasting. This is her time to shine and to look and feel her most fabulous self. The look I have selected for this bride is a maroon lehenga in velvet with floral thread work. Yes, maroon and velvet are back, for me personally maroon as a colour never left the wedding scene. It was and still is the most sort after colour an Indian bride prefers to wear on her big day. For most of us the wedding is incomplete without an outfit in maroon or red. It is one colour that undoubtedly looks amazing with those lovely henna painted hands and feet, also because red is traditional and bold at the same time. It makes a woman look and feel feminine and confident, a feeling every bride needs to feel when she takes her first steps towards her matrimonial life. Velvet on the other hand is definitely making a comeback and what better way than to feature in Sabyasachi’s latest collection. Done in velvet and dyed in deep maroon with vintage floral motifs and brocade embroidery with a deep neckline the lehenga is fit for a modern day bride who is looking for some classic charm and beauty in her wedding dress. This piece reminds me of the days gone by.
