This Indian Bridalwear Designer Is The Fresh, Young Style Every 2018 Bride Needs!
We’ve died and gone to Indian bridalwear heaven! Lehengas, gowns, bandhgalas, sherwanis, oh my! Everywhere we turned, there was a little sparkle peaking out, some fringe calling out to us, splashes of whimsical colour and a feast for us fashion obsessed folks at Happy Shappy! (Not gonna lie, we squealed more times than is socially acceptable.)
Akanksha Gajria was one of our very favorite Indian bridalwear designers at Bridal Asia 2018 – and we’re here to let you in on why!
With every piece we picked up, we felt more and more like kids in a candy store!
And not just because this Indian bridalwear comes in an assortment of confectionery colours! We saw lovely pastels, delicious sorbets, deliciously airy but pigmented women outfits. We love that you can pick a lehenga for yourself and a coordinated sherwani or bandhgala for your dapper groom as well!
Akanksha Gajria let us in on the secret to her gorgeously unique designs!
She has a special technique to tie-dye her fabric, giving it the unique colour patterns that you see. Akanksha then uses a foiling technique to add a metallic embellishment to her masterpieces, and quilts the fabric to give them body – without adding unnecessary weight! This makes her lehengas light enough to twirl and dance in, but gives them body and that princess feel that every Indian bride wants! Genius, really!
Glitter, Glimmer, Fringe & Sparkle!
Is it even really Indian bridalwear if it doesn’t have the bling? Akanksha Gajria does it in a whole new wonderful way! With sequin flowers and shimmering fringe that makes you want to shimmy and shake, her lehengas, gowns and even adorable dhoti sets are perfect for a trendy fashionista! We especially loved a strappy sequinned piece paired with a bright fuschia pink dhoti – would be great for a wedding guest too!
