Sanchaya Lehenga by Anita Dongre
For long, Anita Dongre has been renowned in the Indian fashion circles as a designer that believes in showcasing Indian aesthetics coupled with modern sensibility. Her bespoke collection is inspired heavily by Rajasthan’s rich heritage, and one could say the same for this stunning yellow lehenga set. This Sanchaya Lehenga features exquisite traditional crafts in the form of embroidery such as gota patti, zardozi, resham and dori work. The yellow lehenga set itself is riddled with subtle hues of summer blend and floral motifs that mimic royal gardens of the state of Rajasthan. The fabulous fabric of the entire handcrafted lehenga set has been sourced from Chanderi silk, Chanderi mull, and Organza. The U-shaped subtle yellow choli imparts a look of marked elegance to the entire ensemble.
Ivory Floral Gara Embroidery Border Handwoven Saree by Sabyasachi
Sabyasachi is another wildly popular luxury fashion designer who lays huge emphasis on his impressive portfolio of traditional garbs. Hailing from Calcutta, this designer brand opines that Indian hand woven sarees not only create a strong visual statement, but also help in fashioning a distinct identity for Indian women across the world. This purpose is served quite well by the featured ivory self-pattern hand woven dhakai (which is 90% cotton and 10% silk) saree with gara embroidered floral border that has sequin and cutdana work on either side. Its simplicity emphatically makes a statement with an ivory and peach textured floral print blouse with a thin khadi lining.
Emerald Green Hand Embroidered Capsule Clutch by Sabyasachi
When you are looking to buy designer clutches online, then this ethereal maroon capsule clutch crafted in velvet with gold intricate hand embroidery by Sabyasachi should be on the top of your list. It’s a ringing endorsement of Sabyasachi’s acclaimed mastery in traditional handicraft, and features embroidery all over the front and back accented with sequin embellishment. The metallic push lock on the top and a detachable chain provide a beautiful visual contrast against the backdrop of soft velvet.
Banaras Hand Woven Suit by Anita Dongre
