Step1. Finalizing the Design

The first stage of the couture process is the selection of the design for your bridal lehenga. This involves choosing the silhouette of the skirt, the style of the blouse, the sleeve length, the neckline, the shoulder style, as well as the design for the separates. You can share some sample images of lehenga designs that you like with our designers or can browse through our catalogs to pick various design elements. Here are some design guides to help you make the best choices

Step2. Choosing the Fabric and Construction Details

Brides often get carried away by gorgeous designs and flattering style of their bridal lehenga and don’t pay much attention to the material. Don’t forget that wrong fabric choices could completely ruin the look, however compelling the design may be

Typically, the design & fabric selection goes hand-in hand & is often an iterative process. Our designer will assist you in making the right choices, will keeping your budget in mind

Base Fabrics & Colours

We will help you select the base fabric of the lehenga as per the silhouette and other design elements that you have chosen for the lehenga. We also recommend to keep the weather and the setting of the wedding in mind

Color of the lehenga dress plays a significant role in enhancing your skin tone. The base fabric can be dyed as per your colour preference and customized prints can also be added on the fabric during the construction phase if you have opted for a printed lehenga

Lining Selection

Investing in the right kind of lining is as important as investing in the right fabric for the lehenga. Choosing the right material for the lining of the skirt and the blouse is crucial to the comfort and overall fit of the final outfit

We recommend pre-shrunk cotton or linen linings that are comfortable to wear and do not distort the shape of the garment after washing. For sheer fabrics, we opt for a crepe lining that provides a seamless finish. Our high-quality lining will ensure that the blouse and skirt hold their shape well and that any embroidery or embellishments on the outer fabric do not scratch against your skin

Use of Can-can

Cancan is the stiff net material that is used to create an underskirt for the lehenga, to add volume. While it adds a statement flare to the lehenga and looks appealing in pictures, cancan also makes the lehenga heavy and thereby difficult to maneuver and walk

Since your comfort is of prime importance as a bride, do not go too overboard with the cancan merely for visual appeal and choose the right volume for the skirt that you can easily handle throughout the event. Our designers can help you choose the right amount of cancan as per your frame and the fabric of your lehenga

Step3. Construction, Trials & Fittings

The construction phase of the couture process is when the fabric of the lehenga is cut into the desired shape, the embroidery, prints and embellishments are added to the cloth and the blouse and skirt are stitched as per the chosen design. The reason why the design stage is so important is because once you choose the various design elements, the fabric is cut accordingly in the construction phase, and any major design changes cannot be incorporated once the cloth has been cut as per the chosen pattern. Our designers create your comprehensive fit profile based on your measurements, so as to minimize the need for any alterations during the fitting phase

01    Embroidery

Since embroidery is usually the most alluring feature of a bridal lehenga, we take special measures to ensure that it always meets our high standards and take customer approval of the embroidery samples at each stage of the process. You may therefore be called in for your feedback on certain design elements at multiple points during the construction phase. It would be a good idea to plan a physical visit to the boutique at these construction milestones as suggested by the designer
