The beautiful and exquisite costume was designed by Hyderabad-based designer – Shravan Kumar. The border and pallav of the saree are encrusted with the embroidery depicting the three-hundred-year-old Pichwai art form adding grace.
“Saree is the most beautiful 6-yard sheer, I think it is magical it covers our culture beautifully. It took me and my artisans more than 5 months to weave the saree. The color of the national flower & the aura of women has inspired me to design this costume. The motives all over the saree are the description of a peacock eye. This quintessential yard of elegance is a glowing tribute to magic flowing out of the deft hands of the Nakshabandhas, the supreme Master of Art, and their age-old hand weaving skills. I am happy & proud that Adline has carried the outfit so well empowering the true essence of an Indian woman on the universal stage”, said ace designer Shravan Kumar.
