South Indian weddings are known for their glittery gold jewellery and elegant silk sarees. And, what better describes the heritage of South India than their Kanjeevarams? Although, they are a representation of their history, but we should certainly not overlook the new-age designs that are being introduced in the market. Yes, you read it right! For our new-age brides, we also have some designers who have designed and styled sarees that will suit their new-age look and not be a passe. Let’s take you through the designs of these 5 talented South Indian designers!

Shilpa Reddy 

Are you someone who can not decide between their love for contemporary and traditional? Then, Shilpa Reddy Studio located down south is the perfect place for you to visit. This designer and model brings forward an amalgamation of classy, traditional and a modern saree look.

Gaurang Shah

From Vidya Balan to Taapsee Pannu and Keerthy Suresh, we are sure you must have often seen these actresses poised in rich silk sarees. And the person behind their elegant attire is the designer, Gaurang Shah. One of his most famous collection included Kalamkari prints with rich golden zari border. Vidya Balan wore a beautiful Kalamkari Kanjeevaram saree from Gaurang’s ‘Chitravali’ Collection.

Sailesh Singhania 

This one is another celebrity designer whose sarees have many a time been adorned by actresses, such as Rakul Preet and Madhuri Dixit. Sailesh Singhania’s sarees can give a bride a traditional look along with a taste of modern motifs. 

Bhargavi Studio 

Bhargavi Kunnam is a designer who is known for mixing modernity with traditional looks! Unlike many others, she just does not only deal with dark colours for her silk sarees, but also goes pastel many times, just the colours our modern-age brides are looking for. And, if, you are in for something unconventional then Bhargavi Studio is the place you should be heading to. She often combines light and dark colours in one saree, making it a rare-to-find combination.


They are famous for their different weaves and patterns, giving their sarees an absolutely rich look. One of their most-loved series is their beautifully designed and lightweight Ratnamudra kanjeevarams. From anklets and toe rings to bands formed of pearls and diamonds, this curation features sarees adorned with symbols of jewellery and precious gems, handwoven on the silk.
