While designing for ‘Enchanted Blooms’, Sanyukta was inspired by the beauty, form, delicacy and vibrant colours of some of the most rare and endangered flowers in the world.
As with her past designs, the dresses in the Enchanted Blooms collection create elegant and flattering silhouettes and they use gorgeous and sustainable fabrics such as bamboo, hemp and organic silk. And if my dress is anything to go by, they feel absolutely gorgeous on the skin.
Never one to conform, you’ll notice Sanyukta doesn’t limit herself to the stereotypical wedding dress style either. She is so imaginative in the shapes and design she uses, and if you check out the Enchanted Blooms collection, you will notice it also includes a bamboo lace jumpsuit inspired by the Franklinia flower – because who says you have to get married in a dress?
As ever, I am totally inspired by Sanyukta and her work, and she continues to pioneer the ethical fashion industry. Sanyukta continues to work with underprivileged women in her home country of Nepal and as continued support to the Nepal Earthquake Aid Relief, 10% of purchases from her Eco Goddess and Ameya Flower Girl Collection go directly to the fund.
What’s more, she is a breath of fresh air amongst wedding dress designers in other ways too. She aims to make the wedding industry completely inclusive – appealing to everyone from the ‘traditional’ bride, to non-English weddings, and from same-sex couples searching for their dresses together, to brides looking for something completely bespoke and unique. This is the way the wedding industry should be.
Here’s some highlights from the Enchanted Blooms collection – I hope you feel inspired.
