Wedding season is around the corner.. and whenever this season arrives we are all pumped up to attend the weddings looking our gorgeous best!!
we Indians can’t get enough of weddings..the decors, lightings, chandelier, the chaos of relatives, yummy food, prayers, customs, traditions and to get noticed we are in our best outfits. There are so many customs in an Indian wedding, that it goes on for 3-4 days at a stretch. Taking into consideration the ample amount of spending going on during this season, we surely spend a lot on our apparels too, be it the bride/groom or their relatives, each and every one puts an effort and chooses to look classy for the wedding vows.
Since we are designers and running a clothing brand as well, it is really a hectic yet fun task we must say. So we tend to roam a lot around fabric markets to get the best fabric needed for our product to look chic and stunning.
There are many such fabric markets in Mumbai, since Mumbai is a fashion hub, many fashion events like lakme fashion week and other celebrity events are held here. Also the best fashion institutes hail in Mumbai. So for these events and shows designers certainly require unique patterns, textures and prints and we are truly blessed to live in this city as a designers. we are surely making the most out of it!
