Leheria Blues - Sangeet Ready

07:51:00


With a couple of my closest friends getting married in November and December, I've been looking forward to the wedding season this year with extra zest and enthusiasm...Given that I've already got all my outfits planned, stitched and ready, I truly mean it when I say extra enthusiasm and of course tons of excitement!

When it comes to Indian outfits, I genuinely enjoy the process of designing an outfit and getting it stitched as per my own customization. Of course I do opt for ready-to-wear outfits as well, but when time permits, I love putting thought into things and getting tailor-made ensembles.

Dance practices are in full-swing and I thought the time is apt to put up this post and tell you guys about my Sangeet outfit. I wanted to get a little experimental and neither opt for my usual go-to fabrics nor colours. I came across a Leheria outfit while looking for inspiration on Pinterest. Having always loved tie-dye, I knew instantly that's what I wanted to work with. Leheria is a traditional form of tie-dye popularly practiced in Rajasthan. The technique is named after the Rajasthani word for 'wave' as complex wave patterns are produced using this technique. When I went fabric shopping, although there were tons of colours available, there was something extremely fun about this blue. I asked my tailor to make a very simple and flowy dress for me, with just a few buttons in the front as I wanted a pretty yet fuss-free outfit.

Speaking of the look, this is exactly what I will be re-creating for the actual function. I paired the dress with a net dupatta that I'd gotten made with another kurta. I like the fusion of blue and green while the hint of pink and gold work on the border added a pop of colour! As for the accessories, I chose a pair of embellished earrings, a couple of studded bangles from Rajasthan and a simple neckpiece that I'd picked up from Colaba. To further add a pop of colour to the look I chose this pink embroidered clutch from Dhaaga.

My makeup artist and hairstylist, Rujuta Kulkarni, wanted to give the entire look a Jasmine feel in keeping with the blue outfit. My hair was put into a bun and tiny little yellow flowers were used as embellishments. A tiara was added for that princess-like element. As for the makeup, the base was kept really simple and fresh with just a hint of blue eye-shadow and light coral lips...

I cannot wait to dance the afternoon away. <3
