Cheers to brighter days – again! We’re almost at the edge of 2021, and for brides waiting for their big day- it’s the time to leap ahead. With the pandemic fear dissolving into the hope and joy of vaccinated populations, the upcoming season of weddings seems to be one huge celebration.
The couture trend is back- weddings and ceremonies have resumed in full glory! And Indian brides across the world are gearing up to elevate their D-Day most preciously. In the decade of modern ceremonies and cross-culture nuptials, there is one constant thing- and that is- the love for classic Indian wear.
The Indian wedding wardrobe has always been an indulgent treat of artwork in ceremonial palettes like reds, pinks, maroons, jeweled greens, and royal versions of blue. Lately, the neutral palette has become an integral part of bridal closets, thus, accommodating the trend of subtlety and elegance that is becoming popular among modern Indian brides.
While the bridal lehenga has undergone a few transformations, the details- ancient prints like Bandhani and embroideries like zardozi and Dori work still rule as essential bridal-wear elements.
Virasat – Lehengas for the Modern Bride
The charm and impact of aesthetic lehengas are undisputed. That explains why most Indian brides are attached to this gorgeously flared silhouette. Virasat- the legacy celebrates the emotional element of timeless lehengas with ensembles crafted in choicest details. An ode to traditions in their most glorious avatar, the Virasat lehenga collection bridges the Timeless with the New through gracefully adapted designs. The use of the opulent fabrics and exquisite hand embroidery makes these lehengas luxuriously inspiring.
While each lehenga boasts of classic finery, it also carries accents of new-age charm, connecting the cultural inclinations of today’s fashionista with ongoing trends. Let’s take a look at some of the beautiful creations from the enthralling range:
Here is a treat of royal pink in flared formations with the evergreen bandhej prints and dreamy fabrics. Pink has always been a perpetual trend in the wedding segment. Featured here is an all-pink Bandhani lehenga that is every bit of timeless and a modernistic organza lehenga paired with a colorful blouse and heavy, embellished Bandhej dupatta.
Woven grids in glistening golden yarns are an inherent pattern in traditional wear. Here are two lehengas that adopt the classic- one in its finely woven silken flare and the other as multi-colored floral lehenga paired with an embroidered grid dupatta- designed and crafted for royal celebrations.
Bright tones of purple exude a powerfully feminine charm. The Virasat collection portrays the palette in two diverse versions- a paneled traditional purple silk lehenga full of golden ostentation and a cream flower-woven lehenga that carries spunk in its puff-sleeved purple designer blouse and statement ruffled dupatta- to give you the picture-perfect moments that you have been wishing.
Adorable- is the word that defines the combination of bright pink and effervescent purple. While this purple silk layered lehenga narrates the story of imperial silk wrapped with a pink twirl of modern elegance, the magenta peplum lehenga choli makes space for trends in the wardrobe for sacred ceremonies.
White is adaptable to the classic and the novel. Modern brides have taken a liking to this ethereal hue that fits in with the theme of contemporary and cross-culture weddings. Virasat combines the dazzle of mirror embroidery with elements from different eras to create modest silk lehengas and experimental jacket lehenga fusion sets- perfect for pre-wedding celebrations!
Delightful Bandhani prints and Gota Patti artwork create beautiful ensembles in gorgeous shades of green to meet the vibe of culture-oriented parties happening around the wedding ceremony. While the green and mustard composition is an extravagantly ethnic treat, the green Bandhej lehenga accommodates the layering trend with a flattering, embellished jacket replacing the dupatta- so that you can move around with ease and enjoy the occasion to the hilt!
