“My best friend was getting engaged in Muscat, and while I thought this might be too heavy for an engagement, she insisted that we go all out and dress heavy for her function. Since it was a day event, I opted for softer shades and went for a light lehenga with a heavier dupatta and embroidered blouse. I styled it with gold juttis from Needledust (not seen in the image) and a simple pair of emerald and pearl earrings and gold kadas.”
Ohaila Khan is one of the designer’s whose work I love and follow, and she wore this lehenga from her own brand’s new collection “Aurelia” that’s available on Pernia’s Pop Up Shop and AZA, Bandra. Her studio in Mumbai will also customise a piece from the collection for you if that’s what you need. I loved this lehenga for a friend’s wedding event, particularly because it’s pretty simple save for the heavy dupatta – ideal for a bridesmaid!
