Bangladeshi fashion icons in Vogue India

Water is synonymous to Bengal. The vast expanses of blue waters and the vast blue sky over our heads, especially in the seasons of Sharat and Hemanta, and the monsoon downpours every year, have made blue and its shades another particular favourite of Bangladeshis. Contemporary fashionistas take both comfort and beauty under consideration, perfectly combined in this resplendent white tie-dyed and embroidered Muslin number, at once bright and soothing. A charming design by Humaira Khan, the mind behind the creative designs of Anokhi.

Chunky silver jewellery has been a part of the Bengali belle’s wardrobe forever, along with the bright colours of the handloom fabric, woven for all purposes in various patterns. Perhaps the best preserved traditions of Bengal are reflected in the garbs of the people spread over different areas of the country. Here we see an ensemble by Tenzing Chakma incorporating various key pieces like silver jewellery, handloom cloth, the blouse’s unusual cut, the wrap around skirt, and the bright red colour - a hue favoured by many a Bangladeshi.

The charm of a Bangladeshi bride rests in the colours of her getup and the shades of emotions playing on her cheeks, as well as the shine and glitter of her cherished jewellery. The colour palettes may have changed somewhat over the past decades, drifting away from the traditional red and gold, but the vivacity and lustre remain the same. Artist Sadia Moyeen of La Belle goes all out yet keeps it classy to bring this new version of the traditional and demure look for a bride.
