Ladies! Check out 16 intricate, gorgeous and extravagant bridal lehengas by the talented Indian fashion designer- Vikram Phadnis
Indian designers are truly magnificent and amazingly creative. They can do so much with a piece of garment. From color coordination to embroidery work to using rich fabrics that represent the exact theme, now that is a lot of hard work. One such Indian designer who has contributed a lot to the fashion industry is Vikram Phadnis. He is the master mind behind the gorgeously extravagant Indian outfits worn by Malaika Arora, Amrita Rao, and Soha Ali Khan. Today, we bring to you 16 beautiful designer bridal lehengas by this ace fashion designer!
From his super hit collection Swades from 2013 which spoke of practicality and affordability mixed with ethnic India theme to his latest assortment of Indian bridal lehengas that was showcased at Renaissance Wedding Fair 2015, Phadnis is known to create a beautiful balance between fashionable, Indian and western designs.
His latest bridal collection represents intricate designs that were a true depiction of artistic thoughts and talent. The designer played around with gold sequence and elaborate floral motifs on thin nets and summery chiffons. The lehengas and other outfits were flowy, elegant and stylish.
The magical shades and hues of gold, beige, and cream with a dash of bright orange, sea green and pink clearly sent out the splendid message of revival. Besides, royalty was in the air.
To achieve the ‘renaissance splendor’ look for an upcoming wedding, here is what you can do with your hair and makeup:
- Long braided hair or a stylish updo with a hair accessory (could be a strand of fresh jasmine flower band or a couple of English roses in red/orange/pink).
- Opt for kundan and pearl jewellery to further enhance that ‘royal’ look. A mang tika can be an add-on.
- Go for bright makeup, pink or red lips, glittery eye makeup, mascara and winged eyeliner if the lehenga is in a subtle beige or cream.
- Nude makeup with subtle lip shades is recommended for a lehenga in bright colors or heavy embroideries.
The vibrant wedding lehenga collection by Vikram Phadnis is sure to a bride into a goddess. Also, this time, it isn’t just the glory of traditional red that should be considered. So, why not experiment a bit. This season, colors such as peacock blue, orange, crushed pink, gold tint, mauve, turquoise and green are also getting a much-needed attention. Today’s modern bride is ready to take that risk. Zuri also recommends that a bride should embrace newer colors.
So all you lovely ladies out there, what is going to be your bridal statement?
