My collection "Kaasika Bazaar" is collaboration of two spiritually and culturally affluent cities ‘Banaras’ from north and 'Hyderabad' from south. The blend of traditionalism and modernism of the two cities have inspired us to feature such resplendent ensemble with the amalgamation of raw silks, gold tissue and banarasis to showcase a contemporary bridal idea. The hues “red”, “green”, “gold” and “elephant” motifs in our embellishment with zardosi enhancements have been determined to refer to the ancient and indigenous lifestyles of the two cities."
