Sonam Kapoor Lehenga

The heritage handwork which went to this Sonam Kapoor’s lehenga

Trends are something which sweep into a culture gradually and then become an inevitable must have. I guess the same principle applies to the raging trend of designer Lehengas for the south Indian brides. While, they still could not replace the Kanjivarams, they do have their predominant place across various other ceremonies like Engagement, Mehendi, Sangeet and Reception.

Talking about Lehengas today, I have recently been intrigued by the beauty and intricacy of Lucknowi Chikankari Work. When I looked up online out of curiosity of any Lehengas available in Chikankari, I was given a ton of inspiration.
Not to mention our recent B Town Bride Sonam Kapoor was spotted in a Chikankari Lehanga for her Sangeet/Pre wedding festivities. So, when some Iconic Divas themselves considered the handwork, it high time we try too.

While White is the statement color of Lucknowi Chikankari, most the Chikankari works are dyeable, so that means you can get the Lehenga in the color of your choice.

While these chikanari look understated and humble, the rich texture of the handwork makes a regal statement in itself.
