Traditionally, Indian brides have two outfits to choose from for their wedding; sarees and lehengas. However, the design and fabrics used for the saree or lehenga's will differ depending on their choice and the region from which they come from.

Banarasi Silk Saree:

The Banarasi saree is one of the finest and most flaunted sarees in India. Its popularity stems from its gold or silver zari or brocade used with the silk fabric. In South Indian weddings, traditional saree is prevalently worn by a bride.

 Lehenga with Trail:

This is one of the trendiest Indo Western Dresses for a bride to wear on her wedding. A traditional Lehenga will have some sort of royalty when a trail is sewn to it.

Jacket Lehenga: 

This looks pretty much like an Indo-Western Gown. A gown that is knee-height is worn over the Lehenga to make it a Jacket Lehenga. The Jacket may replace a choli or may be turbid, in crepe or silk. Designers like Manish Malhotra and Satya Paul has done some remarkable work on Jacket Lehenga.

Traditional Kurta Shalwar:

The Traditional Kurta Shalwar gives the groom elegant look and comfort. Since it can be designed in a variety of styles it can be worn not only by grooms for a wedding but can also be worn to formal and informal parties.

Undoubtedly, the most traditional and elegant clothing for a groom is the Sherwani.It is the common choice for a number of sub-continental grooms. The earlier trendy off-white color has been replaced lately by various colors of Sherwani such as black, maroon, gray, and much more.

 

Achkans:

Achkan would be just a perfect outfit for a groom who wants to look trendy and classy at the same time. This is pretty much like a Sherwani, but the fabric and the length of an Achkan are different is where the two differs.

Indo-Western Suit:

When it comes to a wedding, Indo-western suits have become very much a top trend for grooms in recent time.

Indian Fashion Designers and Pakistani Fashion Designers January 30 2017

Despite having own uniqueness and differences, Indian and Pakistani fashion industries do share quite a few similarities, notably with respect to inspiration and aesthetics. In addition, the consumption patterns of the typical Indian and Pakistani are also comparable.

The variations are within the infrastructure expedited by the public sector and also the development of the retail fashion market. Moreover, the political and socio-economic surroundings play an enormous role as well in the growth and development of both nation's fashion industries. Both markets do possess a certain passion and desire to achieve and maintain generosity in fashion and have several common aspects of interest in expanding their fashion industry.

When a discussion about the comparison of fashion industries between these two countries arise, it's obviously the fashion designers from each country are the main component to carry the responsibilities and draw most of the attentions to evaluation their fashion industries respectively.

Indian Designers

When you up to find the best fashion dresses designed by the top Indian fashion designers, you will find the ideas that Indian fashion designers have played a significant role to introduce their outstanding designs and traditional Indian dresses all over the world. Today Indian can be proud of many of their excellent fashion designers, who can easily compete with any Western fashion designer in their designs and ideas.

Some Top Indian Designers

Well, they are plenty in numbers when it comes to fashion designers in India. Bollywood and fashion designers are two different things of the same coin. The Mumbai film industry has always been privileged having the likes of Masaba Gupta, Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi, Ritu Kumar, TarunTahilaini, Manish Arora, etc as costume designer. All these designers are among the top designers belong to India but has attached an international brand value against their name and went beyond India with their skill and creativity in the fashion industry. All of them are like legends in terms of designing Bridal Lehenga Choli, Indo Western Gowns, and many other trendy outfits.

The importance and impact of the general designers for common people are none less as India is a country with a population of around 120 billion. And a huge number of fashion designers has been providing an outstanding concept for outfits for all age and gender type people over the decades and they are an integral part of Indian Designer Boutique industry. 

Pakistani Designers

Since Pakistani designers don't have a huge market like Bollywood to showcase their talent and creativity, they aren't offered with the same demand and importance usually, compare to the designers from the neighboring country. Sometimes, people across the border who are not familiar with Pakistani design much often wonder how the Pakistani people dress. However, Pakistani designers have played their role to introduce their best fashion designs among the country as well as in some other part of the world. Pakistan has a rich and a very own ancient culture in which cultural costumes and fashion dresses are given a lot worth focusing on.

The Pakistani salwar and kameez are one of the most popular and identified dress of women owned by not only in Pakistan but also in the other continental countries including India, Bangladesh etc. It is a remnant of the Mughal era when the royal and other high-class women of that time introduced some attractive and unique concept of outfit to the public through Designer's Salwar Kameez.

Some Top Pakistani designers

The number and work field of Pakistani designers may not be as big as the Indian designers but there are quite a few Designers from Pakistan who haven't only enlighten the Pakistani fashion but also the world fashion arena.

Designers like Hasan ShaharyarYasin, AsimJofa, Fahad Hussayn, Deepak Perwani, BuntoKazmi, Sana Hashwani, SafinaazMunir, Maria.B. all are world class designer from Pakistan.

As it's already been mentioned, designers from both the countries have their own uniqueness, creativity, and taste. There are some similarities between them at the same time. But it can't be determined comprehensively designers from which country are better. In a word, the Indian designers have a great market and client to work for, while the Pakistani designers don't have that at all.

Having said that, Indian designers surely have an enhanced work skill with more experience and variety of work range compare to the Pakistani designers. But the designers from Pakistan may have an upper hand when it comes to Shalwar, Kameez, Kurti. But in terms of variety, experience, and working arena, designers from India will always have an extra rating for outfits like sarees, lehenga, choli etc.

Different types and class of Indian Designer Boutique are there for you presenting Party Wear Lehenga Choli, Kameez and more. Embroidery perhaps is the most important part to keep in mind for most of the ladies while buying those sorts of dresses, and rightly. So the design, color, shades, contrast, threads etc. of each embroidered patch comes into consideration to look fabulous when you wear the dress.

Which color should you buy or which thread should be used in embroideries to make it look lovely and long lasting? These opinions demand a deep conversation while that is not our main goal today, rather we would like to assist you with a different yet highly important aspect of embroidery. To be precise and make things simple, we will be highlighting some vital aspects about the two different kinds of Embroideries, 'Handmade Embroidery' and 'Computerized Embroidery'.

Difference between Handmade Embroidery and Computerized Embroidery

The basic difference between handmade and computerized embroidery is the embroidery stitching process. A variety of unique stitching styles, in terms of the thickness of different threads are available for Handmade Embroidery, while computerized embroidery doesn't allow that variety. Every step of stitching of computerized embroidery is premeditated.

Hand embroidery has its own beauty and attraction which is preferred by most of the girls. Computerized machines help you create embroidery quickly and reduce costs. However, hand-embroidery designs are the traditional ways that individuals choose as it allows their creativeness to flow and they can create their own designs.

Computerized Embroidery and Handmade Embroidery

The use of machines makes you reliant on them and these machines have their boundaries. Many designs are inbuilt within the computer, so the user's creativeness can't be applied. That means you cannot enhance or change the designs to fit your own choices on something you are working on. You should have technical knowledge if you want to create your own designs. Computerized embroidery machines are expensive too.

Hand embroidery, on the other hand, always looks fresh and alive as it is made with personal touch and desire of the artist. The hand embroiders master their skill diligently to craft a design and that's what it makes the work special. Each of the hand-made embroideries gives a unique appearance even with the same design and materials because these artists are allowed to use their flair to choose different colors and stitches. Computerized embroidery will give you a robotic feel in the terms of appearance.  It looks like just a print for all the copies. The same stitches, same color, no uniqueness, all of them are fully identical. 

Another technical difference between these two types of embroidery is, you can use pure silk thread for hand-made embroidery, but since the silk threads break too easily in machines, you can't use them for computerized embroideries. Polyester, metallic, or rayon threads are mostly used for computerized embroidery instead.

When it comes to spotting whether embroidery is hand-made or computerized, there's a very simple way to determine. Take any embroidery work and look at the back of it. If the back of the canvas looks irregular and loose, then it is hand embroidered. The knots of hand-made embroidery can be felt easily. While computerized embroidery will have the opposite attributes. The back of its canvas will be firmer and tight with the pasting. 

Final Words

Computerized embroidery has gained a fast reputation as it reduces efforts and saves time and is cost-effective too. You can get pre-designed Party Wear Lehenga, Kameez or kurta from any good boutique if you want to attend any party on an urgent basis. There is a lot of eminent Indian Designer Boutique all across the country. However, the experts commonly suggest selecting the hand embroidery designs.

Regardless of what kind of embroidering you choose, hand embroidery designs provide you with a lot of confidence and satisfaction as the patterns and designs will be yours. They will allow you to be innovative and let your creativity go crazy.

The Indian subcontinent is famous for its excellent wedding ceremonies. These beautiful ceremonies reveal customs, rich traditions, and cultural heritage. Females are certainly the most integral portion of these events as they are the ones who enjoy these events the most. As every event requires special dresses, it applies to the wedding ceremony also.

Long cholis are among the coolest difference well-liked by all subcontinental women as well as designers are nowadays. These Lehengas are perfect for any year and give you a different look in comparison to frequent choli designs. These are a tremendous choice for events for example engagement and mehndi events.

When seeing the beauty and attraction designer Lehengas, we see they are very costly comparatively to the normal Lehengas. Normal Lehengas are low cost and you can find them in many gorgeous colors prepare with excellent fabrics. The cut-patch work plays an important part in the designing of a normal collection. The designers use these in to offer a modern touch to their collections. The innovative cuts are supplied so that the collections get the stunning touch. The colors also play an important part in the designing of normal Lehenga collections.

An Interesting Thing to notice About Lehenga

It is about the Provider or manufacturer of Lehengas. In an overall consideration, there are two sources of Lehengas where we can get it from. One is well-known and mostly recommended Designer Lehenga Choli Online and offline both, and the other is the general tailors or garment producer.

The designer’s Lehengas are very high in demand because of their great quality, looks, and brand. While there is possibility for the replicated/normal Lehengas to come up with a high quality in terms of look, style etc.

A designer Lehenga costs about $4,000-$25,000. There is no doubt this is quite a budget for most girls who belong to a middle class family. In a word, the designer’s Lehengas are meant to be mostly for people belong to the upper class in terms of financial condition and they need to think about where they have to spend the money. The expensive Designer Lehenga is not a choice for medium sized families. There are lots of replicated designer lehengas available in the market to choose from at a genuine price range in between $1000-$4000. Wedding is one-time event and even you can’t use the same lehenga for other functions due to variety issues these days. So, there is no point to buy expensive lehengas for just a game of a few hours. But yes there are some families who don’t care about money and the wedding outfits too are the status symbol for them.

Expensive designer lehengas don’t really mean that you will get an amazing lehenga with top quality fabrics and embroidery. In some cases, replicated lehengas are better than the designers’ lehengas in terms of quality and embroidery too. Every person who deals with replicated work would try to give you more beautiful outfits than the designers’ so that he can satisfy you with a price around 10 times cheaper.

Hence, the bottom line is that Designer’s Lehengas have turned out to be pretty much a status symbol for a certain class of people. However, girls, regardless of any class, can look as gorgeous as anyone spending a lot less than what it takes for a designer Lehenga.

What should I wear on my Best friend's marriage? December 05 2013

Weddings are the perfect Indian festival – traditional, fun, colourful and joyous! And when someone you’re really close to is getting married…well, nothing can top that!

So, your best friend is getting married. You’re the bridesmaid. Besides helping and aiding her on the big day, you can also help her look fabulous. Planning is never underrated - we suggest that all the bridesmaids wear colours from the same colour family – the bride can either choose to contrast it or match it – either way, you (and the photos) will look absolutely gorgeous!

The bridesmaid has to look spectacular but should never overshadow the bride! To avoid such fashion faux pas, Panache suggests strong colours in rich fabrics such as raw silk and velvet. Wear simpler ensembles with stunning colour contrasts and dramatic silhouettes. Not only will you be comfortable, but you’ll also enjoy the wedding fully unburdened!

Pair a chic chiffon sari with a corset – you’ll immediately stand out from the rest. Experiment with draping styles – pleating the sari around the side instead of the front? Why not! Indulge in sheer lehengas – they look gorgeous and are perfect for dancing the night away...

 


Contemporary ethnic wear gains popularity in India December 04 2013

Contemporary ethnic wear or Indo-western wear – a more relaxed, contemporary and modified take on traditional Indian outfits – is gaining popularity among India’s youth. With an impressive line up of clothing meant for different purposes and occasions, the contemporary ethnic wear brands are dominating the retail scene in pretty much all the metros and tier II cities today.

 

Nowadays, people prefer to dress according to different occasions, so dressing is no more restricted to just shirts, trousers or suits. We have ethnic formal, casual and occasion wear and there is a good percentage of consumption in each and every sub category. These sub categories cater to various kinds of requirements, for example formal and casual can be worn both at work and home and the heavier ones at occasions like festivals and weddings.

Our country has always maintained a parallel wardrobe of its classics because they are more colourful, in sync with the climatic and cultural conditions of the traditional Indian society, and definitely more flattering to the Indian figures as compared to western outfits.
