Couture in India, has definitely come a long way. From being traditionally (yawn!) bridal, couture today is more experimental than opulent, avant-garde, and even crossing the proverbial gap that divides it from prêt.
Quoting Rahul Mishra, the modern Indian bride doesn’t want to wear head-to-toe couture anymore. She mixes a treasured heirloom that’s been passed on from generations, sports a vintage piece scored during travels, adds a quirky blingy accessory just because she loves it, mixes up designer separates that seamlessly blend together, and finishes off the look with quintessential Louboutin shoes that magically work with everything! All in all, creating a unique and yet cohesive look that sets her apart from what any other bride has been wearing that season. Sounds like a dream? Here are 10 picks from the Amazon India Couture Week and BMW Bridal Week that we’ve been dreaming of.
Featuring, Sabyasachi exploring his dark side, show-stopping jewellery that’s meant for a bride, ornamental headgear, a generous dose of sequins, spikes and sheer, structured drapes and Indian wear with capes, ivory and finery, champagne gold and Victorian styling that’s never too old.
If this isn’t love, we don’t know what is!
