Radhika Apte Shines in ‘Near Weightless’ Wedding Lehenga by Saroj Jalan

Radhika Apte played muse to Kolkatta based designer, Saroj Jalan, at the Lakme Fashion Week at The St. Regis, Mumbai on 28th August, 2016.


Kolkata’s queen of couture, Saroj Jalan showcased 13 exquisite garments at Lakme Fashion Week yesterday.

In a bright red zardozi and hand woven tussle silk lehenga by Saroj Jalan, Radhika Apte looked like a lovely bride!

Muse Radhika Apte, was dressed as a conventional Indian bride, but everything else about her was unconventional- her blazing confidence, immense sense of couture comfort and stunningly simple make-up.

The collection, titled Gulzar, incorporated the mystic beauty of Mother Nature in a vivacious spectrum of colours. Inspired by the poem, Sakalban, penned by the great Aamir Khusro Saroj Jalan says, “ Radhika’s garment is a Zardozi embellished lehenga in red, which is every bride’s favourite colour. The entire lehenga is done with an array of hand stitches and embroidery with a lot of floral motifs and dancing peacocks used in the garment. The garment is very light and easy to handle, almost weightless, keeping in mind the ease and comfort the bride of today would require on her D-Day. The work and fabric (velvet)reflect royalty, poise and vibrance which enhance the beauty of the bride and helps in making her the cynosure of all eyes on her special day.”

The designer is well- known for her 18-20 inch, elaborate borders and the 5-metre ghera that she gives to a bridal outfit.


Speaking after the show Radhika said, “The conventional idea of beauty does not interest me much. Rather something unconventional yet elegant that brings out the best in you, would attract me more. I like Saroj Jalan’s work because each embroidery style has its own history and a story of development which makes every garment different and unique than the other.”

Saroj Jalan also showcased her debut menswear couture line at the fashion week.
