New trend alert: This bride stunned in a denim lehenga designer by her father
Ahaana Khosla, desiring to be a 'different bride,' worked closely with her father to create a wedding lehenga entirely made of denim.
In a groundbreaking moment for Indian wedding fashion, Ahaana Khosla and Shehan Minocher embraced a unique twist as they tied the knot in neo-traditional denim ensembles. Ahaana, a fashion enthusiast, collaborated with her father, Manoviraj Khosla, a Bengaluru-based menswear fashion designer, to craft a distinctive wedding look that defied conventional norms.
Crafting a denim outfit
Ahaana Khosla, desiring to be a 'different bride,' worked closely with her father to create a wedding lehenga entirely made of denim. The unconventional choice marked a departure from the traditional bridal attire, as the father-daughter duo sought to infuse modernity into the rich tapestry of Indian wedding fashion.
The denim lehenga was adorned with contrasting floral embroidered motifs, creating a visually striking ensemble. Ahaana expressed her vision for the outfit, ensuring that it retained the essence of a wedding lehenga. The butterflies and dragonflies intricately embroidered on the attire symbolised themes of change, transformation, and new beginnings.
Taking coordination to the next level, Shehan Minocher, the groom, complemented Ahaana's denim lehenga by donning a denim bandhgala paired with white trousers. The groom's attire included a surprising element – denim footwear, adding a touch of contemporary flair to the traditional wedding ensemble.
Neo-traditional is not an entirely new concept
While Ahaana and Shehan's denim wedding attire may seem unconventional, it's not an entirely new concept in Indian fashion. Several designers, including Varun Bahl, AK-OK, and SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi, have previously explored the fusion of denim's versatility with the ethnic charm of the lehenga silhouette.
The couple's choice of denim wedding attire reflects a broader trend in Indian fashion, showcasing how modern couples are embracing outfits that resonate with their personalities. The shift towards unique, personalised ensembles symbolises a fashion evolution in the Indian wedding scene.
Ahaana and Shehan's denim wedding attire stands as a testament to the evolving landscape of Indian wedding fashion. The decision to break away from tradition and embrace denim as a wedding fabric underlines the contemporary choices made by couples, mirroring their individuality and style preferences.
