There is no denying the fact that every year Lakmé Fashion Week comes with new trends for the upcoming seasons! Be it for street fashion, or for wedding haute-couture, the five-day fashion gala displayed inspiration-worthy dresses for all! And in the second segment of Function Mania’s Wedding Inspiration from LFW2018, I have compiled 4 beautiful collections of India’s top designers especially for the pretty-ladies who are seeking trendy ideas for beautiful bridal wear as well as gorgeous bridesmaids dresses for the upcoming wedding season!
So, let’s get started with…
The designer duo showcased their creations with beautiful saris, lehengas, and gowns featuring gorgeous embroidery on rich fabrics like silk, satin and tulle. We loved the way traditional attires were given a trendy western touch in their creation. The collection looked like a dreamy combination pretty pastels like grey, pink, peach, violet. There were ruffles, flared skirts, intricately embroidered bodices embellished with golden and floral work. We think the collection was a perfect assemblage that mirrored fearless feminine elegance and beauty.
