A huge movement will come to the bridal and wedding industry over the next 10 or 20 years – ethical, vegan and world-friendly fashion and styling. Leading the movement by several million miles (in our humble opinion at least) is luxury bridal designer Sanyukta Shrestha. Not only are her exquisite creations unique, handmade and beautiful: they’re helping communities of women and keeping traditional crafts and skills alive.
Which leaves me at a loss for where to begin today’s blog post: Sanyukta combines two seemingly impossible worlds with grace and ease. Her bespoke wedding dresses are pure luxury, made with the most wonderful fabrics and innovative silhouettes and styling. They’re also made from hand woven and hand loomed fabrics, such as organic cotton, hemp silk and bamboo lace, made by and supporting women in rural Nepal.
As if all of that wasn’t wonderful enough, Sanyukta Shrestha’s 2019 collection – Entwined Love (Chapter 2) is a tribute to her brides, literally – with dresses named Sarah, Francesca, Jamie, Maddy, Chloe and Martha to name but a few! The designer’s compassion and empathy extends to her clients, whose needs, dreams and insecurities about their wedding dresses are taken into consideration when creating their perfect wedding gowns.
