With the New Year come new trends, designers launch new collections and everybody awaits the trend of the year to unroll. Indian weddings are not only known for their grandeur and extravagant nature but also the colourful fashion too. Khadi is one latest trend that’s in vogue – from everyday fashion to weddings.
Khadi, the traditional Indian fabric is getting quite popular not only amongst limited classes and culture also gradually made its way to the mainstream fashion. From boutique designers to the ace designer to the likes of Sabyasachi Mujkherji have launched their entire collection of the season inspired by khadi.
Traditional Fabric and Ultra Modern Prints
Khaadi is a traditional fabric that’s available in a hundred different varieties in the present time. Silk mix Khaadi is what becoming more popular among people these days. Pretty contemporary prints ranging from chevron prints to traditional block printing, look absolutely beautiful on the fabric.
Heavily Hand Embroidered
The traditional Zardosi work can make the most boring fabric or the dullest colour come alive with its intricacies. Especially, in the wedding collections from anarkalis to bridal lehengas made with khadi fabric have heavy zardozi work with also, beads, sequins and cut dana work all over the outfit. Irrespective of the simplicity of the fabric or the sentiment attached to it, khadi is becoming immensely popular.
Colours Do The Talking
As we listen to the word Khadi the colour that appears in our mind is brown or beige which apparently is the depiction of khadi but not today. Designers have explored every shade and tone of every hue in the colour wheel when it comes to khadi outfits. It’s probably the most experimented fabric in terms of colour.
Light In Weight, Heavy Impact
Apparently, it’s super lightweight and has a very rich look and feel. Yes, you must be wonder how is that possible. Khadi that designers are using is not the traditional fabric with raw and rough feel. Silk and velvet are the most popular fabrics amongst but khadi is definitely a super competition to both in terms of affordability and lightweight, respectively.
Something Different, Boho and Chic
It’ll definitely set you apart from other brides and bridesmaids for its brand new and elegant. The prints and work that is coming up in the fabric are very bohemian and chic. It’s inspired by traditional Indian fashion but has a very boho touch to it. Sabyasachi’s new collection is entirely on khadi and is titled ‘The Neo-Bohemian’. If the legend himself playing big on the trend then there’s no reason left to give it a second thought.
