A woman is said to look most beautiful on her wedding day. Whether she is a vision in white, a princess in pastels, or in an auspicious hue of red; a bride is the star of her show. But every star needs a support system – her girl gang. Bridesmaid duties include helping the bride dress up, holding her purse, mobile phone, make-up, making sure her clothes always fall perfectly. But with these duties comes some of the spotlight, and Mishru’s collection makes bridesmaids look their shaadi best.
Mishru, founded by fashion designer Swapna Anomolu, has always offered intricate luxury Indian wear, keeping in mind the latest in new-age fashion for the modern woman. ‘Mishru’ itself translates to “a mix or fusion of elements” and, just as the name suggests, the label excels in bringing together contemporary design elements with India’s rich traditional aesthetics. The bridesmaid collection epitomises this ethos, with some stunning pieces for the new-age bridesmaid.
This two-piece, royal blue lehenga choli embroidered with a golden foliage design. The sheer dupatta has a dotted golden embroidered pattern, with a scalloped border. This is a rich-looking ensemble that has the best of a royal colour with embroidery and a fashionable sheer dupatta.
This dark red ensemble is sure to make a statement. The torso is embroidered with a golden pattern and the waist is cinched with a golden chess-board design embroidered belt. What stands out are the cape sleeves that cascade to foot level.
This purple crop-top, with silver embroidery, has been designed to go with a nude skirt. The dupatta that goes with the outfit is made of a sheer, cream coloured fabric and is studded with sequins. This is definitely an outfit that has a pop of colour to add some flair to the entourage of bridesmaids.
The cobalt blue lehenga choli has an eye-catching botanical print embroidered in silver that runs through the voluminous lehenga and the sleeveless choli. It can be accessorised perfectly with a maang-tika.
This lehenga choli is a summery colour of peach with silver embroidery, with the choli going heavy on the beautiful plant-design embroidery. The paired dupatta is sequin-patterned, sheer white, with a beautiful bead and sequin work on the border. It also comes in a beautiful blush pink colour.
