It was a beautiful and very fulfilling experience to style the look for WeaveinIndia. They take crafting by hand to a magical level, evoke a feeling of Indianness and national pride of our rich heritage and culture.
I consider myself a purist when it comes to working in my styling projects. I believe in minimalism, keeping the looks simple and clean so that it doesn't overpower the clothes I'm wearing. As I am wearing a luxurious, handwoven kadhua benarasi with all over jaal, embellished blouse and bandhani dupatta, so I went with dewy makeup, wispy bun, and a tiny bindi to offset the rich sari. A dual tone silver jhumka with green enamel to lend an element of contrast to the orange and pink sari and an oversized silver ring were my choice of accessories.
Since, I'm based in Ahmedabad and truly believe that backdrop plays a crucial role in putting together a complete, wholesome look, so I decided to shoot it in the bylanes of the Old city to capture the true essence of the city.
