'Purple Princess' Lehenga Choli

Added May 29, 2011

Kuala Lumpur, Ma...






Fish Cut Lehenga in Tissue with Silk Brocade Princess seam + Panel Style choli with Petal Sleeves

I made this dress for self and wore it on my Cousin’s wedding reception, sadly didn’t have much photos on that day (too busy with festivities) and hence decided to make a photo shoot specifically for this outfit (it deserves one doesn’t it?) There was an exhibition near my place having a ‘Taj Mahal’ Replica and thought it would make a perfect backdrop, so here i was wearing a lehenga in an ‘exhibition’ being the cynoclosure of all eyes (read misfit for the location), but who cares, as long as i got a nice backdrop for the photos!

Then i ventured out onto the road and took some snaps when there weren’t much onlookers!

More about the dress & photoshoot over here @ my blog
