By Manish Arora
Bold and vibrant colours with experimental embroideries as well as statement jewellery are all synonymous with the ‘Indian by Manish Arora’ bride
My signature bride is someone who has a crazy, cool fashion streak with a fi erce attitude and the fl air to pull off an elaborate, extravagant ensemble. While designing my bridal collection, I have used a lot of my signature Gold Rexine Appliqué work which is something I’ve incorporated this season, giving it an unconventional appeal. I feel that hues of gold and a blend of international trends with Indian infl uences while creating bridal attires are an ideal mix for the upcoming wedding season. At ‘Indian by Manish Arora’ bold, vibrant yet one-of-a-kind attires are created to the specifi cations of the clients. We have been lucky to be part of many beautiful weddings, with gorgeous starry eyed women, each different from the other and all of whom wore my fi nest creations, as special brides who are not afraid to experiment and merge their sense of individuality with the ensemble to create a combination that is befi tting for today’s modern bride.
While putting together her trousseau, the garments must be intelligently chosen so that their utility does not wean away after the fi rst few weeks of tying the knot. They should be wearable long after the festivities are over. Also, it is important that the bride keeps in mind her comfort and personal style while choosing not only the garments, but also, the accessories.
