Have I ever told you that all my Indian wear is designed and made by me? Having said that, I would also like you to know that I obsess over saris and lehengas. While my co-blogger sister Anisha yells at me about writing posts and updating ourselves on social media, I while away the time staring at beautiful lehengas on pinterest (Anisha I’m just joking) or not.

I love Indian embroidery, gota being my most favourite. Now I know everyone has their own taste in clothing but I never do understand these fusion lehengas and gowns. I love the traditional big A-line cuts and always avoid the diamante filled ones which I feel just make you look like a chandelier. Eek!
A traditional bridal lehenga with a full flare will and should consist of eighteen kali’s. Gets a bit heavy but look so beautiful! With our fabric market having such beautiful things I always get greedy when I go to buy for my shoots.
Let me take you through some of my favourite designers and beautiful summer lehengas by each. Once you see them its quite clear that I love pastels and soft colours. Also prefer gold and rose gold to any silver work.
