Silk lehenga choli
Silk lehenga choli
Silk spells luxury like nothing else. The lustrous, organic fabric has been considered a royal fabric, since ages. Despite its delicate beauty and regal appeal – the fabric is not too flimsy or sheer. It has body and depth – which makes it perfect for dyeing (into various colors) and also as a great base for embroideries and embellishments.
No wonder then that silk is one of the most preferred fabrics for Indian wedding outfits too. Silk Sarees, handloom silk sarees and weaves like Banarasi and Kanjeevaram are an integral part of every Indian wedding – and silk lehenga cholis continue to remain a popular choice for wedding and bridal ensembles, despite the invasion of endless new and fancy fabrics and textures.
Whether it is the sturdy, heavy raw silk base or the smoother South Indian silk base, lehengas look lovely and truly majestic, when made in silks. The vibrant, glistening silk fabric makes for a wonderful canvas for heavy antique hand-work techniques like Zardozi, Aari, Mirror-work and more. Since silk fabric has a good fall – it can easily be tailored to create many lehenga designs and silhouettes. A variety of lining materials or underskirts, including the now famous cancan, are added for extra flair and volume – under silk lehengas.
Many girls choose graceful silk lehengas – with little or no ostentation – for festivals and special occasions like gruh prevesh and god bharai ceremonies – and also for pre-wedding functions like mehendi and sangeet. Brides may also choose South Silk Lehengas with broad borders and South silk thread weaves for their own pre-wedding rituals. These Indian lehengas tend to remain fresh and evergreen – as silk is a classic that’s least likely to go of fashion. Silk lehenga choli without embroidery is light-weight and is preferred by women for dancing. Thus, you may often see many Navratri lehenga choli in this lush fabric or even many Kathak dancers wearing simple silk lehenga choli dupattas for their performances.
