Pretty Gowns Add Glamor to the Party Scene

In older times, party dresses of women used to be highly restrictive of movement being floor-length with flounces plus puffy sleeves and so on.  These heavy and elaborate gowns did not allow them to dance or move around much.  Thus in the 1920s, these gowns that used to be called as evening gowns were given some tweaks.The evening gowns have evolved into stylish party gowns of today through the decades. 

They are worn for formal dinner parties, for operas and even weddings. Then relaxed dress codes allowed for some realty novel designs and styles befitting the occasion. The cocktail party is one occasion when women have more options of party wear gowns.  The ballerina gowns extend up to the ankle just touching it while the above the ankle gown is longer.

 The Little Black Dress (LBD) is the most popular of evening dresses which is highly versatile and elegant. They are worn with appropriate shoes, hairdo and jewelry.Today short designer party wear gowns and dresses are preferred by young women who like to follow their Bollywood idols.LBD is one gown that every fashion conscious woman prefers to have in her wardrobe.

Forr party wear gowns are taffeta, organza and satin but silk and a mix of light weight silk or wool are also used.  Velvet is another fabric of choice for evening gowns with off shoulder necklines are also in vogue among pretty divas.

Every girl dreams of her wedding day

Bride to be

·         Weddings are the D-day for every girl. It is the day that every girl fosters in her heart since the moment she sees a beautiful radiant bride on her day.
·         From walking down the aisles or taking the seven circles around a fire that is regardless of customs and traditions, the most important factor of a wedding is definitely the bride!
·         Recent obsessions of designer clothing and exotic wedding destinations have generated a huge lucrative business in the fashion industry especially in the bridal wear.

·         There are several designers who only specialize in bridal wear. In India, the most common form of bridal wear is the gorgeous and evergreen lehenga.

The rise of the Lehenga   
India is a country steeped in tradition and customs. So it is only natural to see those traditions in various forms of artistry especially in clothing and different forms of material. From various rich textures to different form of silk, India is exquisite when traditional wear designs are concerned.

·          The lehenga is the most common form of wedding wear in Indian weddings for the brides. In the earlier days, they were mainly composed of rich and pure silk with heavy ‘zardosi’ or other intricate work. The choli is another essential component of the lehenga.

·         They are mostly embroided patterns consisting of borders, broad laces and a ‘ghagra’. In modern times however, with the rise of the new crop of couture designers the Bridal lehega has undergone a major transformation.

   Heavy thread work, sequins, modern twists such as mixing pure gold thread on the fabrics are giving the young Indian brides a range of lehengas to choose from.

Too many options for the Indian bride
·        Traditionally though in most parts of India the lehenga is choice of wedding wear, sarees are also quite popular. In fact, traditional Indian bridal wear actually means sarees.

·         Bridal sarees are diverse since they differ according to regional differences. But the elegance and intricate designs are what ties most Indian sarees together.

4. Design / Pattern of the Lehenga
The design of the lehenga and the patterns used in it play a key role in making you stand out from the crowd on your wedding day. While ‘A-Line’ lehengas can match all types of figures easily, you cannot assume it true in case of other lehengas too. Hence, it is recommended that you assess your body type  first. Depending upon it, you can choose anything from the wide collections of straight cut lehengas, spherical cut lehengas, mermaid-cut or fish-cut lehengas, etc.
