latest bandhani dress pattern for 2017
Bandhani is one of the most underrated material of Indian textile industry and I truly believe so. There is so many ways that you can flaunt this tie-dye trend and yet when you have a new bandhani dress material the very first confusion you have is how you gonna design it? Because there are this set patterns and styles dedicated for a bandhani dress like putting a zari lace or mirror lace at the bottom and make a decent neck pattern or maybe add a scallops lace to the duppatta and that’s about how you will style your bandhani dress. When I recently got a bandhani dress as a gift, apart from the usual work or lace trend, I decided to do something different with my bandhani dress. I did not want to turn it into a maxi dress which was my very first option because of two reasons, I have too many westerns and not many places to go these days and other is that I regularly take my little one to prayerhall where I don mostly Indian outfits, also we had festivities lined up this year so having an authentic gaji silk bandhani dress in my wardrobe was totally on my checklist.
So I got this really prettty pink and red bandhani dress material and rather than making it all glitzy with diamonds or mirrorwork and lace appliques, I decided to let the bandhani’s tie-dye trend shine by going the simple way with the dresss design. I chose a pattern with a false overlap on one siden with tiny potli buttons adorning the lenght of the dress.
I had this mustard colour leheriya material (another form of tie-dye) which went pretty well as a contrasting material for the pattern. that had a long slit covered with a different material altogather. With a matching palazzo pants and a messy bun hairstyle I am ready to rock this ethnic attire.
Tie-dye fashion has been totally in vogue this year and to think of it, India has been the origin of this beautiful ethnic textile trend, I think it is really great to flaunt this pattern in different styles keeping intact its traditional heritage.
