Designer Maheka Mirpuri shares New Bridal Wear Trends
The Wedding season is here! And we know all brides are looking for some expert advice on what's latest in Bridal Couture as they hunt for their dream wedding outfit. myShaadi.in spoke to Mumbai based Fashion Designer, Maheka Mirpuri who gave us all the insights into Bridal Fashion 2013!
Today’s brides are bit more experimental and open to challenges than the earlier conventional ones. However traditionality still remains constant, as they still want to look opulent and Indian.
A bride is young, innocent, and demure. There is an inner glow and an anxious look of feeling like a princess. I feel auspicious colors like burnt orange, brick red and hot pink are classics and will remain constant forever.
I never recommend mature or deeper colors for the effervescent Bride. Colors bring out your personality. I have experimented my coloring with a huge palette in nude, corals, canary yellow, marigold, lime green, deep blue and hot pink.
Gold is a strong prominence and remains my constant feature.
Voluminous skirts with swiss Chantilly lace under linings, brocade waist coats teamed with anarkalis.
The empire line full girded floor length anarkali, the short megya or ¾ quarter sleeves, low cut cholis look strong, the one shoulder as an alternative neckline, lots of drama and volume in hemlines, gold prominent and colors rule.
When Brides are shopping for their trousseau, they need a variety. They should pick up stuff which is more wearable and timeless. Since wedding clothes tend to be heavy, they should pick silhouettes with detailing or structure & opt for different colors and styles.
Voluminous chiffon, a light sari, an Indonesian anarkali, a skirt, a corset, a gold and silver Swarovski blouse, a western gown and a Chantilly sari, must be a few, one has to get.
Depending on each one's schedule and type of order anywhere between 2-3 moths time is adequate for delivery. Since I do 2 – 3 shows annually, followed by trunk events and sale online, I work within this time line schedule.
I always match my committed date and till date have delivered. A Bridal outfit does need more detailing and intricate embroideries, to be matched keeping her personality and colors in mind.
We sell online, and a lot of our selected works are uploaded on the site at; www.mahekamirpuri.com. We do fix appointments to understand the queries and create samples specially meant for for Bridal orders. My USP is I personally try to meet every Bride (if in town) and create clothing keeping her synergy and personality mind.
If it is an outstation client, we work on emails, sketches and measurements format. I do try and recommend a meeting with them personally however.
While doing a collection, I keep a wide spectrum of garments and its range differs. If a client has a certain budget, I do try and work around it. We give options and suggestions keeping their requirements and try to accomplish their needs. I believe every client has their own vision and I try to implement it.
I customize very often due to size or color variations, alternating conservative styling.
