Variety of Print Designs

The two main types of prints are screen printing and digital printing. To pick the right one you need to know the difference between the two. Screen printing is a traditional method of printing where a stencil or screen is created to apply the ink/color into the fabric whereas in digital printing the computer process the designs and directly print them into fabrics. Screen printing provides you a high level of vibrancy while digital printing provides you high clarity on the detailing.

Certain occasions and events demand a specific look and hence decide where you would like to sashay your favorite print to before you go shop them. Here are my suggestions on how to flaunt your favorite prints at the most special ceremonies of a wedding. Engagement is a time when you can go for an intricately printed Lehenga with a simple Choli and Dupatta. Light, beautiful and traditional, this is the best look that will get all eyes on you. A Digital Printed Lehenga Choli with a contrast Dupatta is what will rock the Mehendi look. A beautiful floral printed Lehenga is the latest rage even among celebrities for a wedding so I would definitely tell you to try this look. Reception is an event where people will look out for fashionistas. A fun and trendy printed Anarkali Gown with some new style of neckline can up your look tremendously while keeping you stylish and comfortable. Adorn some breezy flowy printed Gowns so that you can party away the night in style.
