The latest bridal collection is also all set to make any woman feel and looks like a maharani from the golden era”
He quotes from a British novelist “Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze’
In his ensemble she transcends into a different world of royalty, he uses rich fabrics with embroidery techniques such as ‘dabka mukesh aari etc. to adorn the lehengas and odhnis. The colour palette is mostly of vibrant reds and gold adding a sophisticated modern feel to the garments.
