If you are a bride-to-be and looking for someone to design your outfits for your big day, Archana Karthik is the one. I am a big fan of fancy blouses and I always prefer them to be unique. I have got my blouses designed by multiple Chennai/Bangalore based designers where some of my experiences were good and some were not. Based on my experience, I can easily say Archana Karthik and her team stand out.(Hands down!!!) So get comfy, grab your popcorn and read the key points of Team AK that impressed me 1)Communication - this was the first thing that stood out. Ever since my first Whatsapp message to them, I was in constant touch with her and her team. They explain everything in detail, from how they work, how they r going to design your blouse/ your outfit, when to pay, how to pay(They even made a video on how to use GooglePay and make the payment), delivery etc. They were very professional and well organized. 2)Customer focused - After the initial discussion with the team, I got a call from Archana to discuss the basic outline of what I wanted and what kind of style I was inclined to. After few days, I had my first appointment with her where we had a very detailed discussion about the designs. She was very quick to grasp what I wanted and she made sure that she understood my style. Unlike few famous designers who try to force their designs on their clients, Archana was more focused on what I WANTED for my big day. 3) Creativity - Archana designed my reception gown and a madisar blouse(wedding blouse) for me. I wanted a mermaid gown which would make me look elegant but not too girly. Something sexy but not too awkward while meeting my relatives. Archana did a fantastic job with the gown, many appreciated the outfit including my conservative relatives who frown upon glam. Coming to the blouse, I was very specific about not wearing the usual blouse designs which float around on Instagram. Archana added her own creativity to my style and she designed a very stylish yet traditional blouse for my madisar. It perfectly suited my personality and I felt special and one of a kind on my wedding day. 4)Precision - The very first time I tried the gown, it was a perfect fit. They had to alter only the length of the gown. On my reception day, I was able to dance, twirl and had loads of fun with my family and friends. Though the gown was an off shoulder, it stayed in place and I didn’t have the need to adjust it. The blouse was equally perfect. Tamil weddings are usually long and tiresome. I was super comfortable in the blouse all day long and I never had to pay attention to it. 5)Trust - Though Archana was very popular and reputed, the trust was not established 100% until I spoke to them. I was doubtful as I had bad experiences with two famous designers before and also it was for my wedding(I wanted everything to be perfect). The minute I spoke to them, I understood their passion to deliver the best and their urge to keep their customers satisfied. Throughout the process, I trusted them and they made sure that they delivered something which I would like whole heartedly. They made me look great on my big day and I became their fan forever. Disclaimer: I didn’t write this big review because I was bored in quarantine. I have never done this before and I only did this because they truly deserved this. I hope this helps all the future brides to make a clear confident decision of choosing your designers for your Big Day!! Cheers!!

Archana is one of the finest designers i have met. She is so friendly, polite, professional, and does her work with elegance and her confident talks made me to trust her completely, and she did justice to the blouse i gave. The perfect fit, embroidery, color combinations, everything was impressive. Absolutely beautiful work done, just loved it and was complimented by all my folks. Made to stitch for yourself is a special feel, and Archana makes it extra Grand which gives us a sense of fulfillment. Thanku archana ! Sure to recommend AK 👍🏼

Hi archana, I’m so so happy with the blouse. The measurements are so apt, the stitching so perfect. My mom was telling I don’t need to wear a saree for this blouse , instead use with a skirt after marraige. Being a bride I’m so happy 😍😍😍. Thank you love for your remarkable work. Will definitely tag you in all my marraige pics .
