Indian designers across the country are gaining international recognition for pushing the envelope when it comes to bridal wear. While the Sabyasachis and Manish Malhotras of the design world take over the global stage, several homegrown designers have garnered interest and built their brands up from scratch over the last few years.
Given our perennial obsession with love and labels – here’s a list of TWB’s Top 5 emerging Bridal Wear Designers that you need to look out for!
Headed by Mumbai-based designer Apoorva Dixit, ORU is a one-of-a-kind label focused on breathing new life into traditional craftsmanship. While her collections have a plethora of colors to choose from, we particularly love the way the pastels and chikankari work play off each other set against modern silhouettes.
Literally translating into rebirth, Renee Label is a love letter to Indian textiles and handiwork in its purest form carefully penned by the sister duo Pooja and Karun. The breathtaking level of detail and the bold colors are quintessentially Indian but retain a level of freshness in their collections.
Lavanya the Label founded by fashion enthusiast Pooja Chaudhary is a playful departure from heavy and ornate ethnic wear. Their light, breezy designs are perfect for just about any occasion from an impromptu desi event to travel without compromising on its Indian roots. Encompassing minimalistic designs to elaborate handprints and classic colors that belong in every trousseau, this label truly has something for everyone.
A contemporary designer who is a force to be reckoned with, Anisha Shetty’s formidable expertise with dress design and her ability to draw inspiration from flora, fauna, and architecture has won hearts around the country. Her collections range from an eclectic mix of bold color combinations to somber but beautiful metallic tones making her design aesthetic as intriguing as it can be!
Known for making the simplest designs stand out with stunning finishes and beautiful simplicity, Label Nitika captures the essence of the modern Indian woman without any pretense. The playful mix of colors, the love for florals, and the wide array of comfortable silhouettes make their collection a favorite with just about anyone that sets eyes on it!
