Designer lehngas - A rage for the new-age Indian bride
It is the era of the smart dresser. Women, besides managing their domestic and professional fronts to perfection, also want to take time off to perfect their wardrobe, so that when these super-ladies are finally out to let their hair down and party, they would kill with their looks. Indian women in general are quite balanced when it comes to ethnic and western wear; they possess an equitable share of both, and are enthusiastic enough to flaunt both their traditional and modern sides. Talking about traditional outfits, Indian women rave incessantly about the saree and the lehnga, these two being the prime choices to be worn to marriages and family occasions.
Lehnga, let’s say, is the most favorite traditional attire for Indian women. But they aren't content with just that. They want it stand apart and have a class of its own. Designer lehngas come to the rescue for those that will not settle for anything regular, common or average. Designer lehngas offer them something unique, different and one-of-its-kind. They come with innovative cuts, art work, designs and patterns. Usually there is one exclusive design for each lehnga so that the wearer knows that only she owns that piece and nobody else can claim to possess a similar one. While many designers such as Anita Dongre, Rohit Bal, Satya Paul, Tarun Tahiliani, Ritu Kumar etc. have their own collections of lehngas, it is Manish Malhotra who is the most celebrated one when it comes to designing lehngas. No wonder most Bollywood stars and celebrities are seen wearing his label, including the likes of Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and so on.
It is every girl’s dream to be adorned in a designer lehnga, especially on her wedding day, so as to indeed make her feel like a princess! When choosing your designer lehnga for the D-Day, keep in mind that red, maroon and pink are the evergreen bridal colors. Even if you want to break the norm and try out a different color, wear one of these shades at least once during the customary functions/rituals. For the purpose of experimentation, you can try shades like mauve, ink blue, orange etc. if you feel you can carry them off with élan. Designer lehngas never go out of fashion, hence, you can preserve these timeless treasures for years and wear them over and over again. In case you have some particular jewellery decided before the outfit, you can show them to the designer so that he/she can design your lehnga accordingly. Your designer will make sure that your pre-selected jewellery complements your lehnga is every respect, and vice-versa!
Also, before getting your lehnga designed, ensure that it is customized to your size and fit. You should ask him/her specifically to leave some margin inside the dress so that if by any chance after marriage, there is some size alteration to be done, it can be amended. Once it is ready, you’ll be all set to rock!
