The best wedding trends to lift from FDCI India Couture Week 2022 shows

Drama, decadence and dreamlike glitz and glamour… season after season, India Couture Week unfurls a visual treat in the truest sense. And as we are experiencing a long-awaited post pandemic renaissance, the series of bridal looks that punctuated the runways this year came through with the haute appeal we need for 2022. From Tarun Tahiliani’s ‘The Painterly Dream’ show that reinforced nostalgic workmanship to Rahul Mishra’s ‘Tree of Life’ outing that stirred imaginations, we were taken into high-octane fairy tales told through lehengas, gowns and saris.

Here is a recap of the standout trends that have emerged throughout FDCI India Couture Week 2022.

The trend: Jackets over saris

Capes to boleros, outwear teamed with classical pieces is a stylish and practical statement. For years, brides have been embracing wedding-appropriate jackets not only when the temperatures drop, but also to enhance their ensemble year-round. Couture week’s striking sari looks also had one thing in common—a complementing jacket. Tahiliani presented matching cover-ups—some cropped, some long—doused in the same embroidery along with his six-yard staples and concept drapes. Mishra continued his love affair with romantic florals rendered on sheer long layers. Valaya’s gilet-style jackets got a sequinned update, making each a standalone head-turner by itself.

The trend: Sexy blouse
