Every year, new trends pop up on the runways in all industries, from streetwear to wedding dresses. This year, the trends that have shown up in Asian bridal fashion are fresh, fun, and impactful. The past’s minimalist styles have been replaced with more glitz and volume, showcasing pieces that make a statement when you’re walking down the aisle.
Designers are playing with unique color palettes and taking accessories to the next level, making wedding dresses that are real works of art.
If you’re shopping for your wedding dress and want to find something on-trend, check out this year’s Asian bridal fashion trends:
While not necessarily a traditional staple of Asian fashion, feathery accents are all the rage in wedding fashion, and in fact, all fashion this year. The sleeves of classic Indian lehengas have been given a fun twist with theatrical, feathery fringe.
The sleeves have been exaggerated to create a focal point of the lehenga with a fluffy and in-your-face design. Feathers are also emerging in other aspects of dresses.
These include around the tiers and the dress base and create almost an ethereal look.
Playing up the Flowers
Flowers have always been a part of Asian wedding dresses & clothing, but this year designers are taking it to the next level. Suneet Verma, for example, has released full collections, like her Couture 2020 collection, which uses beautiful floral patterns to create impactful designs.
You won’t only see florals in the dresses and lehengas themselves. They are appearing in hair accessories and embroidered onto veils and shawls.
Asian bridal fashion designers are taking risks this year, with a modern twist on a traditional style. Statement blouses have never had a home in bridalwear and are becoming increasingly popular. These bold blouses have beautiful necklines, open backs, and dramatic sleeves that make a huge impact and impression.
These designs are highly customizable to highlight each brides’ favorite features, whether they want to show off their back, stomach, or neckline. The cuts are very modern, so they are perfect for a bride who wants to mix a bit of tradition with a more contemporary look.
Tiers and Ruffles
During past years, Asian brides and designers loved a minimalist, sleek look. That has changed this year with designers going the opposite route. Tiers are trending this year; the more, the better. Classic lehengas with added volume are what brides are obsessing over, using tiers, ruffles, layers, and bustle to give their ensemble that extra WOW factor.
Some famous designers like Falguni Shane Peacock are showcasing these designs in their wedding collections this year, and retailers and brides are taking notice.
Asian bridal fashion plays off traditional designs but incorporates some modern and bold elements to make them unique.
Whether you prefer to stick to the classic styles, but add a bit of volume for fun, or create a dramatic impact with a statement blouse, you’ll be able to rock the hottest bridal trends at your wedding this year.
