Summer’s here, earlier than usual and along with the sweltering heat, it has brought with it the season for summer weddings. Summer weddings often pose quite a dilemma. You want to wear all those gorgeous layers of traditional Indian wear but the heat makes you force the idea of a heavy saree or a ghagra right out out of your mind. That’s where Closet Couture by Neha Kukreja comes to your rescue.
The featured outfit is a piece I especially loved from Neha’s summer ethnic collection which hosts 6 fabulous pieces. Closet Couture presents a unique blend of outfits, inspired by India’s top designers, for summer weddings. Keeping summer in mind, the colors start from warm shades of coral and builds into the red and orange family. This makes the outfits in her collection a perfect choice for a day or a night event! I love how the traditional ghagra has been given a daring and unique twist to perfectly suit a summer wedding. It’s light and airy with a sprinkle of tradition. For me, the light overcoat steals the cake. It’s elegant, flowy and exudes grace. It really brings the outfit together perfectly. The fabrics are chosen with extreme care keeping style and structure in mind.
Inspired by European tastes, gowns are the speciality of Closet Couture. The brand caters mainly to the young generation and is open to customisation of the outfits. They are extremely accommodative of personal requests for added flair, tighter bodices or intricate embroidery. If you can’t find the right outfit from their ready-made collection, you can always contact them and place an order and they will have it crafted to perfection, just for you.
I love how much thought and care goes into the make and cut of every outfit. Trust me, take one look and you will be hooked! You can take a quick look at her collection, which recently walked the BFW ramp, on her Facebook page Closet Couture by Neha Kukreja or shop from her collections on the luxury shopping site www.theluxeaffaire.com.
Don’t waste a moment, head over right away!
