‘Tis officially the wedding season. Just like every year, this time, too, people are celebrating their special days in full glitz and glory. From a couple celebrating their D-day in mid-air to another one arranging musical-themed ceremonies, this wedding season has definitely set goals that were previously not heard of.
The extravagance is not just limited to the decor of the venue or to the wedding ceremonies. With every season, we get to see over-the-top sartorial choices of the bride and groom, as nowadays, the wedding couture is wider than just heavy lehengas or sarees and sherwanis. The landscape of Indian wedding fashion is constantly evolving, and in contemporary times, brides and grooms wear what they feel most connected to or comfortable in.
Recently, we stumbled upon the pictures of an Indian-origin bride, who ditched the traditional outfits and instead wore something totally extraordinary, and we are totally in for it. Alaiia Gujral, a Chicago-based Indian artist, wore a sculpted corset for her big day. And, oh boy, she looked ethereal in that beautiful corset. Alaiia merged tradition with avant-garde fashion by adorning a custom-designed sculpted corset for her wedding celebrations in Udaipur.
Alaiia’s corset top was by the label, Misho, a Mumbai-based brand by a designer named Suhani Parekh. The brand is popular for its artsy and innovative designs. It has constantly been a pick by popular celebrities such as Zendaya, Kim Kardashian, Alia Bhatt, Kendall Jenner, and many more.
The bride, Alaiia Gujral, donned a custom-made 24k Misho gold corset and paired it with an ivory skirt and cape. The bridal outfit was not just a depiction of the bride’s love for art, but also an embodiment of a legacy passed down from her mother, Feroze Gujral. The bride’s corset was accentuated with an heirloom Temple necklace, a precious gift from her mother that added an immersive emotional depth to her ensemble. To complete her regal look, Alaiia paired her couture corset with a pair of handcrafted baroque pearl earrings. The brand posted a few snaps of Alaiia’s bridal look on their official Instagram account and captioned their post as:
“And the bride wore MISHO gold. The beautiful Alaiia Gujral in her custom 24k MISHO couture corset, ivory skirt and cape at her Udaipur wedding. An art collector and curator, Alaiia wanted a wearable sculpture - something she could wear on her special day that could become a sculptural piece she could display and add to her collection after. The custom-crafted corset made extra special with an heirloom Temple necklace gifted to her by her mother Feroze. Alaiia styles her couture corset with a custom-designed MISHO outfit and handcrafted baroque pearl earrings designed for her special day.”
Many people have shared their views on Alaiia’s look, and they are loving it. They are absolutely stunned by the gorgeous corset and the thought process behind developing the artistic piece. Even the public figure, Diipa Buller Khosla, totally loved the bride’s couture. A user wrote, ‘OMG, this is GORGEOUS’. And another one commented, 'This is just out of this world.'
