There has been a huge explosion in the Indian Designer Wear garments category in the last two decades. Indian designers such as Sabhyasachi Mukherjee, Manish Malhotra, Ritu Kumar, Rohit Bal, Tarun Tahiliani, Anamika Khanna and a few others have dramatically changed the designer wear landscape.
By incorporating western design into Indian ethnic wear, Indian designers have paved the way for a myriad of unimaginable designs and silhouettes. This is the reason why a modern day bride does not wish to go for a totally traditional wedding dress and likes to opt for a contemporary Designer Wear dress.
Remember how Anushka Sharma recently inspired Indian brides-to-be with her pastel pink Lehenga by Sabyasachi Mukherjee. In fact, the designer was instrumental in creating Priyanka Chopra’s bridal wear too. She was dressed in a Sabyasachi designed cranberry red lehenga choli for her wedding ceremony held in Jodhpur. The designer incorporated french embroidery in a typically Indian wedding dress.
The colours, the the fabric and the embroidery on these dresses have mixture of Indian and western influence and is appealing to a lot of young women across the world.
Designer Wear dresses are no doubt expensive and are a luxury item. Designers create gowns, dresses, bridal lehengas, blouses and sarees. They have retail outlets also.
The DLF Emporio Mall in Delhi showcases some of the top names in Indian Designer Wear.
Designers also create custom made dresses for celebrities.
