I'm going to go out on a limb and say that designers this year are favouring their brides in champagne, salmon pink and touches of periwinkle and powder blue. There is also a bring trend towards lamé, which is a bit of an unusual fabric for working with in traditional South Asian fashion, since it doesn't tend to work with all the shininess that we have going on by way of embroidery and other bling, but since they are toning down on handwork, it seems smart to add some glam, and add a little Roaring Twenties Maharani style to their collection, as in the case of designing duo Ashima Leena.
My favourite piece is definitely the first saree in the pictures below. I hate lamé, and I hate spaghetti strap saree tops, as a rule, but this one really works, with the exception of that random strip going across her belly that looks like the seamstress forgot to trim it off. Other favourites include a coral tulle saree with halter-neck choli. Probably the weakest piece in the collection is the last piece in the collection, the periwinkle lengha with it's coral top, which looks badly worked, the top not fitting quite right, making it bunch oddly around the underarms and hips, leaving the peek-a-boo belly looking like it's just too small on the model. It's too bad really, cause the fabrication is great, and maybe with a little bit more work, it could be a great party piece.
