Customer Of The Week

Archana is a regular client of mine who is getting her trousseau saris ready. She is a Dentist by profession and is sporting enough to model the saris designed by us for a magazine shoot at La Princesse. She is wearing a silk sari in electric blue shade with kalamkari border and a big peacock motif in the centre of the pallu. The kalamkari painting is then worked with brass sequins and zardozi work.

In the olive green sari, we have designed antique zardozi embroidery with cutwork. Though the sari fabric is not very expensive but the work done on the sari turned it into a designer one. That is what she said when she saw her sari worked with embroidery. She and her sister Anjana are a treat when they come here with their mother who loves embroidery works and they all look like three sisters delighting over the designs that are being shown to them. It keeps our creative moods always on the high to churn out some unique designs for them.
