Amazon India's Bridal Wear Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016

Updated on November 22, 2019

Bridal wear is all about tradition, ethnicity, luxury and elegant beauty. The designer bridal lehenga brings out all these characteristics, as we saw in 2016's runway fashion. Sometimes fashion shows display such gorgeous bridal collections that we must keep talking about them! The 26th Amazon India Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2016, in association with Maybelline, that was held in New Delhi, is one such unforgettable fashion show, so far as wedding wear is concerned.

Of course, the best was saved for the grand finale on day 5, when we saw brilliant shades of red, green, blue, yellow, black, ivory, gold and cream Benarasi silk creations on the runway from India's best fashion designers. Here are a few of our favorite lehengas, according to the embellishment, designer, ethnicity and fabric of Amazon India Fashion Week SS 2016 designer collections.

Bridal Extravaganza

The bridal extravaganza that was on display by Siddartha Tytler embraced gorgeous red, off-white and golden lehengas with astounding detailed embroidery on the skirts.

JJ Valaya and Tarun Tahiliani also impressed everyone as everyone knew they would with their traditional bridal lehenga and anarkali designs. You can discover many gorgeous designer bridal lehengas online at affordable prices.

Benarasi Obsession: The Art of Benarasi Weaves

If there is one fabric that screams luxury it is the Benarasi (or banarasi) weave. Many banarasi lehengas were spotted everywhere at AIFW 16, with designs varying from the classic to quirky and dramatic. On day 5, they all made us all drool over the masterful craftsmanship possible only with the Banarasi Silk fabric. There were amazing, bright hues and even black regal-looking spring-summer Banarasi silk bridal lehengas and sarees to close the fashion show with a bang!

This year, the use of luxurious fabrics wasn't restricted to only lehengas, but also anarkalis and sarees, that will interest both the classical and futuristic bride-to-be. On the closing moments of AIFW 2016, there were 16 Indian designers who paid tribute to the delicate 'Art Of Banarasi Weaves' and 'Born In Banaras' themes, including the top labels. When it comes to traditional Indian clothing for women, there are few who come close to Sabyasachi Mukherjee's attention to detail. Sabya's and Tarun Tahiliani's green blue and red banarasi lehengas contrasted nicely with Abhishek Gupta's gold and black banarasi silk lehengas.

Modern in Silk

Sanjay Garg's modern silk lehengas were a huge hit! These crimson red and indigo blue mashru silk lehengas with blouse and dupatta may look casual, but they are made from luxurious silk fabric and richer hues. So they'd work well at your sangeet, and the red one can even be worn on the wedding day.

Flowers for the Bride

There's nothing more feminine than expressing your love with flowers. Flowers are an important part of any wedding, but today's modern bride feels she needs to wear it on her lehengas and sarees too. Florals can genuinely boost the summer lehenga look, so if you have a summer wedding to attend, why not try one this season?

Day 2 of AIFW SS 2016 was showered with flowers! After Rasa Jaipur (centre) set the mood for Pratima Pandey's lovey floral lehengas—aren't these colourful, prettily embroidered creations in white and cream delightful? Pratima creates feminine outfits so well in any form of women's fashion she chooses.

Floral motifs and block printed lehengas in blue, white and red also stood out in Poonam Dubey's collection. These charming floral lehengas can be worn at your mehendi or engagement.

If you are a fashionable bride be adorned at your spring, summer or winter wedding in elegance, tradition, style and opulence!
