Lehenga – The Perfect Attire of Indian Brides

Posted by indianselection on May 30, 2012

An Indian wedding is, more or less, a festival in itself! The stunning décor, the bright colors, the dazzling lights, the ‘shehnai’, the abundance of flowers and the fragrant spices – it looks like something that has jumped right out of a fairy tale book. It goes without saying that the wedding day is the most important day in a woman’s life and it is of paramount interest that she looks absolutely stunning. And it is only fair that at an affair as lavish as an Indian wedding, the attire of the bride is nothing short of amazing. Even though, every part of India has a different wedding dress deep rooted in the regional culture, ‘Ghagra choli’ or ‘Lehenga’ has been accepted as the most common form of wedding dress by the Indian women in recent times.

There can be no denial to the obvious fact that Indian fashion has seen some massive changes in the last century. However, ‘lehenga’ has somehow managed to retain its charm. Elegant – that is the word that comes to your mind when you see a woman clad in a gorgeous ‘lehenga’. It is one of the most beautifully crafted garments in the Indian bridal wear and comes in stunning fabrics like chiffon, silk, crepe, net and brocade. When it comes to the styles of wedding lehengas, Indian brides have a wide variety to choose from. While the traditional ghagras still come with an elbow-length or full-sleeved blouse and an overly round skirt, over the years, new styles and patterns of this dress have also emerged.

It must be mentioned here that modern fashion designers aim at making the fashionable Indian bride look like a traditional yet modern woman of substance. And that is why they have started thinking out of the box. Today’s lehengas come in a variety of colors, materials, styles and embroidery work. While there are the fancier ones like georgette lehenga, satin or net lehenga in fish cut, mermaid style, there are also short-length or a crepe lehengas available with a fancy ‘neemzari’ choli. Indian brides are very fond of lehengas that have a maroon short top heavily, embroidered with thread work with a green or beige maroon combination skirt with full zardosi and kundan work.

The Timeless Beauty of Sarees

Posted by indianselection on February 15, 2012

In recent times the busy world has restricted the use of sarees to family occasions and festivals like Diwali and Dusshera. Even though the rat-race of everyday life has forced Indian women to get into trousers and shirts, they have not forgotten that the beauty of saree is eternal. It is the ultimate definition on a woman’s beauty, elegance and poise. That is why new prints, patterns and styles of sarees emerge in the market. And that is why, saree – the apparel wore by Indian women since time immemorial, is still so contemporary.

Saree – which is believed to be the Indian woman’s universal identity, are generally made of cotton, silk or synthetic fibers. A portion of the credit for keeping the popularity of sarees alive goes to the manufacturers and designers of recent times. They take immense pleasure in creating new designs and styles for these traditional dresses which keeps on bringing freshness to the fashion trends. Lehenga sarees are one of the most popular styles of this apparel. It is the perfect blend of a lehenga and a saree. These are most preferred by those who find the original style of wearing a saree very difficult. They can be easily wrapped around the waist and the pre-stiched pleats will automatically fall in place. The sarees are very comfortable and can be easily carried. They are available in different colors and combinations.

Another popular form is the Maya saree. They are made in shot-colors and are designed to change shades in the sunlight. The name suits this saree as “maya’ literally means magic. These are best suited for daytime outdoor parties. The reversible sarees are also a great addition to the unending variety. As these are designed in two different colors and show more than four pallus or anchals; they can be wore in many different styles. How about denim sarees with pockets where you can keep your keys, mobiles and pouches and still look ravishing?

As interesting as the new styles are, the traditional sarees are also popular as ever. They can be found in different kinds like Kanjivaram, Baluchari, Dhakai, Jamewar, Banarasi, Zardousi, Sambalpuri, Tangail, etc.
