A new season equals new fashion colours as well. Lucky for us brides, designers work round the clock to bring us new exciting designs to love. This time around, Lakme Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018 showcased some beautiful creations by a ton of designer labels. But the one thing that stuck throughout was the introduction of New Summer Bridal Colours in their designs.
So, in this post, I am sharing some of my favourites from LFW 2018. There are fresh designs, fresh colours and a whole lot of inspiration for brides, brides sisters and even family of the bride/groom. Here goes:
# Peaches and Greens by Aarbee by Ravi Bhalotia
The colours are perfect to wear to a morning mehendi function. The designs are not too heavy making it well worth the investment and for reusing the garments. One can mix and match and style these outfits in a number of ways as shown by the designer.
# Greys & Mints by Payal Singhal
This years collection was inspired by the architecture in Middle-Eastern countries, captured by way of intricate patterns, jaali work, filigree, and antique embroideries. Although at first glance, it may seem like different colours and not mints or blush, the backdrop fabric of the lehengas is set in lighter shades.
The heavy cutwork embroidered choli with lehenga and embroidered dupatta are the reason for the premium pricing. But these are beautiful pieces to wear on your wedding day if you are looking for subtle opulence.
# Classic Reds by Punit Balana
One of my absolute favourites at LFW 2018. Punit Balana’s collection is eternal. The classic red with the modern twist of the silhouette looks gorgeous and easy breezy for a summer bride. The best part is the budget-friendly pricing which makes the garments all the more appealing.
# Beige, Ivory and Soft Pinks by Tarun Tahiliani
Tahiliani brought the romance and fantasy of florals and the cosmic stars along with an ethereal flavour of his signature, layered and weightless fashion for his “Tarakini” Spring/Summer 2018 collection. – The Indian Express
‘For some time now, I have been thinking about fashion’s role, especially in the evening and bridal wear, and how it has failed the modern Indian bride because the clothes are so heavy, stiff, uncomfortable and never to be looked at or repeated again,’ Tahiliani said in a statement. ‘We set out to create clothes that let women be comfortable and really have fun while still being as glamorous as they felt inside.’
