Indian designer Laila Motwane may not be a household name just yet, but given her growing list of A-List clients, we’re betting this wedding wear designer won’t be flying under the world’s fashion radar much longer. For the modern, fashion-minded bride, nothing says celebration like a vibrant Laila Motwane lehenga.
Before breaking into the India fashion scene, Laila Motwane worked as an interior designer and a make-up artist, and it’s clear that those former professions have helped her develop an eclectic eye for color and pattern. We love how Laila Motwane uses her signature hand-printed block patterns to keep her garments dramatic but lightweight. And did we mention her daring, unconventional color combos?
Check out this tangerine, fuchsia and red lehenga by Laila Motwane that actress Kalki Koechlin wore when she married director Anurag Kashyap last year. We can imagine a lot of brides, celebrity or not, feeling confident, comfortable and charming in this stunning lehenga. (And here’s something else to feel good about: Laila only uses fabrics and designs from India-based artisans!)
