Trying to catch the depth of the two fastest growing online stores, we interviewed the engines of these organizations, i.e. Ms. Shrishti Salecha (Fashion Curator, Mirraw) and Ms. Sanna Vohra (Founder and CEO, Indear) for our lovely, stylish and sensible AAW readers:
Question 1: What changes do you see in silhouettes, colours and designs, this wedding season?
Mirraw: This wedding season would be full of surprises where brides would be exploring lot of new colors. Brides are not sticking to the regular shades of red and orange. Colors like beige, white, blue etc will be incorporated in trousseau this season. Brides will prefer more of comfortable and structured silhouettes this season. Gowns, floor length Anarkalis and lehengas with a trail are going to be a huge rage.
Indear: This season neutral palettes and floral prints have been extremely popular. Fusion wear is also making a comeback along with crop-tops, capes, dhoti pants, embroidered jackets and long skirts.
Question 2: 5 colours every woman must buy for the upcoming bridal season.
Mirraw: 5 colours every woman must buy for the upcoming bridal season are
• Shades of beige, tan, hazelnut
• Powder Pink
• Darker tones of red like mahogany, sangria.
Indear: The 5 colours that every woman must buy for the upcoming bridal season are: Gold, White, Beige, Pastels and Light Blue.
Question 3: What is that one tip to shine on every wedding you attend?
Mirraw: Add an accessory. This year is all about “hero” accessory. Wear a stunning piece of accessory like Chand balis, Maang tikkas, Passa, Ear cuffs etc. to add that statement look to your entire outfit.
Indear: One tip to shine on every wedding that you attend is: to wear a striking piece of head jewellery (maangtikka, mathapatti, or paasa). This never fails to make an impact.
Question 4: How would you suggest Indian women usually with our thick waist line to dress up?
Mirraw: Fortunately Indian outfits are designed in such a beautiful way that they highlight and hide amazingly well. Sarees, Lehengas with Long kurtis, Anarkalis all would work well for our thick waist line. Stick to darker shades of red and blue for a slimmer look. Avoid flared petticoats and extremely tight blouses.
Indear: Women with thicker waistlines (Indian or otherwise) should try wearing designs with vertical prints and motifs, wearing single-color outfits (preferably in darker shades), and wearing styles that are tighter around the bust and flare out at the waist (such as anarkalis).
Question 5: Any must have accessories?
Mirraw: This season is all about hair accessories like Passa, huge maang tikkas, Chand ballis etc (Inspired by Deepika in Bajirao mastani)
Indear: Chaandballi Earrings, a signature gold and silver clutch, a pair of comfortable heels, a statement necklace and a smile!
