Tie the knot the stylish way with designer labels and everything glitzy. Brides and grooms out there, here's where to shop for in Pune if you wish to make your wedding extra special. Bespoke fashion is reigning strong this season and we think the sherwanis, kurtas, lehengas, ghagras and trousseau sarees from these labels have the ability to add the much-needed dose of extra shimmer and sparkle to your wedding. Take a look:
Brand, Baja, Baraat: Designer Labels For Your Wedding Shopping
Masaba, Manish Malhotra, Tarun Tahiliani, Taan Baan, Krishna Mehta- name any high-end designer brand and this tiny studio in Aundh can curate the original pieces for you. Popular among the creme-de-la-creme of Pune, this studio features a selective collection of a few designers for a month, before changing it for the next month. We had the chance to check out the beautiful collection of satin-silk sarees by House of Masaba starting at INR 16000. We absolutely loved the hand-crafted original khadi sarees and ready-made blouses by Taan Baan along with bespoke jewellery, something totally perfect for the wedding season.
Why should women have all the fun? Groomsmen, head to the Rohit Kamra Studio, a luxury store by an ace designer from Jaipur, Rohit Kamra. This men's fashion studio in Kalyani Nagar is about all things regal and posh. Although expensive (starting at INR 15,000), we quite liked Kamra's wedding collective featuring intricate needle-work, floral motifs and quirky geometrical patterns on rich, vibrant colours like peacock green, midnight blue, oxblood red and ravishing mustard. Also, check out the bespoke collection that boasts of well-tailored bandhgalas, sherwanis, Jodhpuri jackets, trench coats, waistcoats, trousers and more.
