The 'RETURN TO BENARAS' collection that has been beautifully created by Jayanti Reddy is an ode to the vibrant temple flowers that grace the ghats of one of the oldest cities of the country while the mesmerising Aartis entrance the world. Gracing the ghats of the ancient city, and the summer flowers in the royal gardens of the Nizams have been the root of inspiration and this pink lehenga is surely one of the best heritage weaves of the label. The silhouette of the blouse with a front slit adds to the fervour.
The couture brand Sulakshana Monga is sure to get you noticed with their light green lehenga with the trail which drew inspiration from the sunset view from the ghats of Varanasi, with a sleeved blouse and tulle dupatta. The heavy Zardosi work was used to weave calligraphy and various forms of art found in the holy city onto the lehenga, with precision. Another piece after Jayanti Reddy's collection owes its inspiration to Varanasi. The collection brings out Indian heritage and culture through storytelling lehengas and opulent colours, sure to turn heads when you walk down the aisle with the phoolon ki chadar above.
