I would not wear this to the main wedding ceremony but is great for some of the other functions that require more movement like the mehendi or music night. A heavier scarf (dupatta) is a way

The Modern Age bride wears white

Next, she is not afraid to wear white to her wedding (a color commonly worn at funeral services in India and considered the color of mourning). While I don’t subscribe to the idea of archaic purity that the west attributes it to, there is definitely a simplicity to wearing white that I deem pure.

The Modern Age bride wears tees

Payal Singhal has found that happy medium between the two in her luxe printed silks. I love deconstructing indian outfits and pairing them with simple pieces from my everyday wardrobe. I liked the idea of wearing this silk skirt with a tshirt for a mehendi or sangeet or simply to dinner or the opera. Crop tops and blazers are another great alternative to this

Payal Singhal

Payal Singhal is a designer who has managed to bring modernity to traditional Indian wear. And yet her clothes allude to a certain old world charm. She takes you on a journey – and her clothes make you want to discover the story behind the craft. Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of meeting and seeing Payal in action at a trunk show in New York.  What was so great to witness was she is as excited about styling her garments on shoppers as she is about designing them. She walks us through her approach to design.
