Sonam Kapoor’s wedding ceremony with entrepreneur Anand Ahuja is the new celebrity news.The star has invited a larger group to take part in the festivities at Sunteck, Signature Island, Bandra Kurla Complex today. The latest from Kapoor’s much-talked-about, yet private wedding is the star’s ivory and gold lehenga by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. Known for their signature chikankari, mirror and metallic lattice work over Indian ethnic silhouettes, their garments stand out distinctly in a crowd.
Sonam Kapoor’s ivory lehenga for her mehandi is covered in intricate chikankari detail, embellished with accents of light gold, with a bold gold choli is the highlight of the look. The lehenga in question took over 18 months to come to life. According to the designers, each panel of the lehenga skirt features a unique set of motifs done in intricate chikankari. Forty different stitch techniques have been used in the entire look. Each panel is highlighted in gold and silver zardozi, zari, pearls, Swarovski crystals and tiny sequins. “This ensemble is a labour of love and joy. Sonam is our absolute favourite and for her wedding it had to be a fantasy piece that set new creative standards for us in order to do full justice to her and this sacred occasion. She ordered it two years ago and it’s taken multiple teams of artisans eighteen months to create,” say designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla.
