Katrina Kaif’s Vintage-Inspired Sari Took 1800 Hours & 40 Artisans To Handcraft
New Delhi: Katrina Kaif may have had an all-Indian wedding but she paid tribute to her mother’s British heritage during the pre-wedding festivities.
Conceptualised and created by Sabyasachi, the designer took to Instagram and described the ensemble: Katrina Kaif pays tribute to her mother’s British heritage during the pre-wedding festivities.
Sabyasachi conceptualised and created a vintage-inspired couture sari with a trailing veil. Silhouetted like a white wedding gown, the pastel tulle sari is embellished with hand-cut English flowers, embroidered by craftswomen from Bengal and liberally sprinkled with semi-precious gems and crystals. The ensemble took 40 artisans over 1800 hours to handcraft.”
Adorned with heritage jewellery, the sari was paired with a statement uncut diamond choker detailed with opals and pale Russian emeralds, with matching earrings from Sabyasachi Heritage Jewellery.
Katrina Kaif was styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania and Akshay Tyagi. While planning Katrina’s look, Anaita expressed that she wanted it to reflect the beauty of a white wedding. She shared: Dreams do come true…Sundowner… While planning the looks I really wanted something that reflected the beauty of a white wedding… veil , trail and a bouquet of hand picked flowers. So we added these ideas to the eternal grace of a sari. @sabyasachiofficial created this magical nude floral tulle with the most delicate flowers, that reminded me of flowers we press in our favourite romantic novels. Here’s to creating magical memories. (sic)”.
