Story Behind The Bride’s Lehenga Design:

“Floating clouds over the endless sea has always been my dream wedding’s perfect backdrop. As an eveningwear designer, my core designer philosophy has always been about sensual glamour. So designing my own wedding lehenga was super thrilling. I wanted to infuse my signature Glamzon take into this conventional Bridal Lehenga.

There is something ethereal, pristine and regal about our national flower – the lotus. For the main ceremony, we decided on Thailand and what’s more tropical than the poetry of our majestic water Lillies? Lotus also reminds me of the Goddess Lakshmi, resting regally in pond floating with gigantic lotuses.

I tried to translate this poetic grace using a delicate mix of intricate embroideries using floral thread work, baroque zari and dash of my favorite crystals. It was truly a memorable and extremely overwhelming journey to translate my dream lehenga from sketch into this reality. It perfectly complements and sums me as the bride I always wanted to be – Regal, enchanting & elegant.”









We wish the couple a very happy married life ahead!
