Applique lehengas are quite new to the party if you compare them to zari, prints and other forms of work and embroidery that are popular. Applique work has this 3D effect to it, which literally makes it stand out, adding a extra layer of depth to the lehenga which means it doesnt need a lot more to make it unique. Applique lehengas are especially popular with brides for the mehendi, and there are so many types, like chrome appliqué lehengas, flower applique work lehenga and of course, mirror and gota applique lehengas among other. Here's why we are definitely fans when it comes to applique work lehengas, but we may add, when done in moderation!
FYI, for the uninitiated, Applique is a type of embroidery that employs a smaller patch or fabric to be applied or sewed onto a larger fabric or surface.
