The secret of the latest Indian Bridal Fashion for Embroidery | from : Machine Embroidery

Hello Everyone!
This morning I was browsing Strand of Silk's website to look for some new masterpieces to add to my wardrobe. 
As it often happens, I ended up in the bridal page and I spent sometime looking at the beautiful bridal lehengas and wedding sarees. 
In particular, I focused on the embroidered creations by Narendra Kumar. I love his style!

All of these details must require a huge amount of work - I thought. 
Then I noticed the grey box in the top menu calling me again! So I got to the Strand of Silk blog and I read a bit about embroidery, and its latest trends.
Enjoy a preview of the article below!

"This season few of our designers are leaning towards machine embroidery. This technique helps in creating a variety of designs with ease as compared to hand embroidery. It allows for the use of a wide variety of colours and stitches. It is almost a way of perfecting the embroidery and the finish for the final design."

Designers Put Their Bridal Best On Display

Popular designers such as Vikram Phadnis, Narendra Kumar, Jaya Misra and Shaina NC recently presented their Indian bridal wear collection at the Hotel Westin, Pune. 

Giving the fashion outing its dose of Bollywood glamour was newbie Evelyn Sharma, who did the showstopping act for Misra.
While Phadnis and Misra presented opulent designs and bright colours, the other two creative heads stuck to a lighter colour palette and toned-down silhouettes. While it was traditional or fusion lehengas, indian bridal dresses and embroidered saris for the ladies, for men, it was more about tailored jackets and brocade sherwanis paired with dhoti pants and silk trousers.

Here are some of the pictures of the different collections showcased at the event.

Remembering Good Moments from Narendra Kumar at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012.

Remember the good moments from Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012 where our designer Narendra Kumar chose the famous  song " Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon Five and Christina Aguilera .


For this special occasion Narendra used a distintive hair style for all the men, including in his outfits a variety of material such as cotton , velvet and wool taking advantage of bright colours. 


The women´s style was inspired in the 70s, using fresh garments such as printed panelled silk tunic or slim jackets to the summer nights as well as  ivory embroidered gown.

Lehenga : Another Style Coming From a Blend of Indian Clothes.


                 Saree is a dress which is different from a Lehenga Style saree. Saree have to form pleats, making it difficult to wear, whereas the Lehenga Style saree is easy to wear. This is precisely the reason why the designers created this outfit, so that it is more confortable to wear. The Lehenga Style saree is a blend between Saree and Lehenga Choli. A Choli is a cut garment that leave the midriff and the navel exposed, which lets fresh air come through when temperatures are high in the South of India. 

Embroideries are used to create the Lehenga Style saree, such as Chikan, Kasida, Kasuti, Bagh... If we take the example of a wedding, the lehenga could be embellished with Bagh embroideries made of gold, silver, real pearls or glass beads, in order to highlight the ladies’ outfits.

One example could be a Lehenga from Narendra Kumar .
