Sonia & Kaveri are sisters and they both have different body structures. Hence their dupattas are draped in a unique manner adding style to their physique. They both are seen wearing brocade silk suits. Sonia is seen wearing a maroon brocade silk with green salwar. The zari border had to be enhanced using a green and gold zardozi border along with a black and gold combination zardozi work. The dupatta has been draped in the coat style in front and V style in the back. Kaveri is seen wearing a maroon brocade silk with a beige color churidhar and a multi colored gota border has been added to enhance the dress. The dupatta has been draped in the sari style so that it covers her broad hips. A kundan brooch has been attached to both their outfits and danglers at the back neck to give it a glamorous effect.

Dear Sonia & Kaveri,
As a thanksgiving, La Princesse would like to present you with a gift coupon. Kindly check your email for more details. Congratulations to you both!

Tip Of The Day

Short and slim women can wear outfits of one color but avoid wearing large designs and plaids.

Tip Of The Day

Tall and Thin women should avoid wearing vertical stripes. Instead they can wear horizontal stripes as this will add width to their body.

Sreedevi had visited my store last year when she had come for a vacation. She resides in US and it was a pleasant surprise to meet her again this year. The last time she visited my store and got herself a dress made,  she had wished that she had come across my store earlier as she wanted to place an order for several clothes. But she did assure me that the next year, she will be back and will make sure that I had enough time to make more designer outfits for her. I had forgotten about it until I saw her again at my store and she said...."Here I am Tabu, back to you....".and as promised she did place an order for some designer outfits to be made for her. I was feeling ecstatic and its a high  feeling of joy when my clients revert back to me with good feedback and also recommend through word of mouth. I take this opportunity to thank all of you who have stood by me ever since La Princesse was just a business philosophy. I owe my standing to all you gals out there. Three Cheers to You All!!!

In the first picture, Sreedevi is seen wearing a peach and white kalidar silk set and if you observe the churidhar, a lace has been added to increase the outlook of the floor length anarkali dress. In the second picture, she is seen wearing a canary yellow and royal blue combination anarkali dress which is also made in the floor length with a matching netted dupatta with rich parsi work done on it. The third picture shows her wearing a velvet chiffon dress that is richly embroidered with antique zardozi and the combination of ice beige and olive green is the highlight of this dress.

Dear Sreedevi,
As a thanksgiving I would like to present you with a gift coupon which I am emailing to you. You may kindly redeem it the next time you visit my store. I think this would be the longest validity period ever offered. Check your email for more details.

Christina Rajathi is a faculty at the INIFD(International Institute of Fashion Design), Chennai. She is teaching Interior Designing and is also a Fashionista to the core. She loves to dress impeccably and has a good choice in living size King Size. You will always find her dressed elegantly. She belongs to the Feminine and Elegant category of Style which is the present style, dominating this season.

In the first picture she is seen wearing a purple color kurtha with wine color salwar, which is a very rare combination. The wine color dupatta has paisleys woven in gold zari with maroon, green and black that adds richness to the otherwise simple dress. In the second picture, she is seen wearing a red and green combination dress in benarasi silk fabric. Here again the dupatta stands out because of the big paisley motifs. The mango motifs or the paisleys have always been a classic and make any dress look prettier with their mere presence. Of course, Christina is able to carry both the outfits with an eclectic and aesthetic appeal.

Dear Christina,
Congratulations! As a thanksgiving La Princesse would like to present you with a gift coupon. You may kindly check your email for more details.
