I am in awe of this collection especially the menswear. It ranged from ornate velvet or brocade sherwanis, kurtas, with heavy zardozi work teamed with impressive velvet opulent glittering shawls. Detailing like jewelled buttons, armlets, turbans added to the royal look of an era that was known for its glitz and glamour.
The gorgeous bridal wear for women included velvet lehengas, and dupattas, deep red sari with black velvet shawl
