A craft couture fashion brand founded in 2013 by Creative Director Sanya Dhir, Diva’ni celebrates the sheer romance of existence through the revival of ancient, authentic, hand-crafted zardozi. With the inheritance of a 75 year legacy of the parent company, KBSH Private Limited; the roots of Diva’ni honours the nostalgia and lingering beauty of ancient Punjab and Awadh (Oudh) province. Reminiscing and tracing the family roots to Lahore, and the craft evolving from its journey from pre colonial era, Diva’ni celebrates heirloom traditions. The Hindostan of yesteryears is alive and thriving in our memories. It is peppered with Persian and Mughal influences and the art and craft of Sind, Amritsar, and Multan. The journey of craft to couture from this chapter of history that Diva’ni seeks to keep alive today is a vintage kaleidoscope; a confluence of many influences which came together to form a signature aesthetic.
Diva’ni works with over 500 zardozikars and master craftsmen and more than 100 looms with approximately 400 weavers’ base and women artisans (hand-painters), across Lucknow, Jaipur, Kashi and the home of the brand; New Delhi. These artists, who reignite dormant imaginations and whimsical desires with the magic of their gold, silver and platinum zardozi, are harmonious personifications of the Diva’ni’s ethos – “Celebrate Hindostan”.
The brand represents strong, untarnished couture, and specialises commissions for the Indian/International cinema and HNI client base including celebrity wardrobe styling. Diva’ni’s unapologetic love for all things old-world and vintage; a love that few openly admit to in contemporary times, has garnered it a cult following across the UK, UAE, Canada, Bangladesh, Pakistan and many parts of the Asian continent.

Unlike the ordinary brides I chose a lehenga with bronze and chocolate hues to give me the perfect look to stand out glamorously, my engagement outfit from diva'ni is definitely a show stopper ! Iv been getting compliments ever since !

Living in Hong Kong the opportunity to dress up in Indian Bridal outfits and have your pictures taken would never be possible, so when I just happened to be in Delhi to plan my own upcoming wedding around the time of the Diva’ni shoot, I wasn’t going to refuse the offer. While the first lehenga I tried on was more my style- classic with a modern twist, the second one was all out glam and super heavy, with intricate detailing from waist down. The blouse was an interesting corset style, with fabric roses embellished on it.
It's every girl’s dream to get dolled up in a wedding outfit. I was lucky enough to experience a glimpse of lil before my wedding day, big thanks to the Team of Wed Me Good Team! An opportunity that I will cherish life long. From the make up artist fussing over me to the runners getting accessories, I felt like an actress shooting for my own movie. Getting touch ups done, settling down the drapes of my lehenga. I was lucky enough to pose for not just one but for two different outfits at Diva’ni.
From the bride: While I was unsure about this lehenga in the beginning, when I slipped into it, the skirt had so much drama that I instantly took a liking to it. The color of the blouse was lovely and this was definitely the most unusual piece in the store.
