The sangeet outfit and blouses for the sarees were designed by me through a lot of research and referencing. I bought all the fabric and got it tailor made to my measurements from Desire Boutique in Bangalore. Dilshad of Desire Boutique was very obliging and I couldn’t imagine anyone else putting up with and executing my specifications and detailing ideas,". Lilac Love

My mother found some gorgeous material on a roadside store in Hyderabad and we used it to stitch my Sangeet lehenga with. It was simple, I loved it," Traditions On Cue

My wedding blouse has the ‘Suryavanka’ (sun) and ‘Chandravanka’ (moon) motifs, work done with zardozi and stones. They matched the jewellery given by my grandmother. My Mehendi outfit was completely custom-made and self-designed too" Cape & Glory
