Summers have arrived & we are more than happy to take out our favorite dresses from our wardrobe & flaunt them for the wedding season. Making a perfect Autumn Winter collection/Nature's Origami collection, Ritu Kumar said, "We are extremely proud to showcase our designs that interpret rich Indian heritage with clean lines and edgy silhouettes that celebrate the spirit of a contemporary Indian woman". What made us in surprise was Aditi Rao Hydari who wore a pretty hand-embroidered organza dress that has prints on it that were inspired by the applique work of Orissa!
While we are already spoilt for choices with beautiful pieces of bridal lehengas, sarees, and dresses what we spotted next was breathtaking and we couldn't resist sharing it with you guys.

First up is a very famous fashion designer Sunaina Khera who launched her collection Promises in Lakme Fashion Week 2020, which is built of hopes, wishes, and dreams for lasting happiness. It began from a place of love, a best friend celebrating the unpretentious, openness of her soul sister getting married. An expression of her unique personality expressed in a lehenga. Speaking about the collection, Sunaina Khera said, “I always thought I would design bridal wear in 5-10 years, I’ve always had a vision for it. But my best friend is getting married next year and this letter inspired me to make her outfit and extend that mood into my collection for SS20.”
Sunaina endeavored to break a pattern she notices across bridal designing and styling in India, to strip away the “sameness” and create a look that is unique and allows the bride’s personality to shine through.
In fact, 'Promises' uses a collection of repeating patterns and motifs steeped in symbolism. The most noticeable of them is the infinity sign, a pictorial vibe that celebrates the occasion. The collection encompasses colors ranging from blush to traditional red with delightful streaks of silver and grey.
Three-dimensional motifs and intricately hand-embroidered flowers, and life bloom across surfaces, symbolic of new beginnings.
Just like we LOVE to pamper our brides we also make sure to give equal importance to our grooms who are getting married soon. Grooms! Just like your bride you also need to look dapper cos after all it's the time to impress your future wife on your wedding. From pastel sherwanis to stylish tuxedos - Tisa, Kunal Rawal & Amaare Couture has an extraordinary collection for Lakme Fashion Week 2020 that is worth noting down.
