Although now people can buy ethnic clothing online and readymade dresses on places like Amazon, Poonam Jain, owner of Vastra Fashion Boutique of Long Island, feels that the beautiful hand-crafted work will always surpass the “fast fashion” mentality that online shopping has created.  Being able to custom design your own colors, fabrics, and accents and having people work on every little bead and piece of embroidery by hand is an art form that is native to India and a part of the Asian history and culture.

 

Vastra Fashion Boutique of Long Island just finished working on a desi wedding in New York this summer.  Custom designed clothing for the bride and groom on their special day was designed and created by the bride and Vastra’s designer, Poonam Jain in Hicksville.  The designs and concepts were then sent over to a private unit in New Delhi, India with some of the city’s best artisans and craftsmen, who worked on the outfits for 2 months.  All the outfits have been hand-crafted for the bride and her bridesmaid as well as the matching accessories for the groom and groomsmen.

 

The bride chose an off-white and turquoise lehenga with custom finishings for the traditional Indian ceremony held in New Hyde Park.  She outfitted her bridesmaids with elegant purple long dresses that matched the accents on her own dress.  The groom was wearing a traditional sherwani with a purple dupatta created by Vastra.  The groom said after looking at all the pictures, “Thank you Vastra for creating this custom look for us.  It was amazing to see the dresses turn out so beautifully on our big day”.

 

Will online shopping go away?  Absolutely not.  However, that element of owning a dress and having designed it yourself on your wedding day is a beauty that cannot be matched.
