Chikankari Lehenga is a breath of fresh air this summer wedding season!

Chikankari Lehenga is a breath of fresh air this summer wedding season!

I remember when I was six my mother was talking over the phone describing her kurti, saying “It is a chikan kurta.” Can you imagine a poor child’s confusion? I fell in love with chikankari the very instant my mum showed me her kurta. My wardrobe has at least 6-7 such outfits. The delicate, hand woven embroidery is a speciality of Lucknow. The intricate thread work has its own old school charm with a touch of contemporary hues.


As a big fan of chikankari, I was over the moon when I learned brides are now flirting with chikankari lehengas! Let’s take a trip down Lucknow’s lanes to enrich ourselves with chikankari ensembles!
