Siddhartha Daga Bridal Lounge and Bandhani reopened doors post pandemic at their Sarat Bose Road address at the end of last year with a regal revamp of its interiors. Spread across 1,200sq ft, the interiors designed with grand chandeliers, Venetian mirrors and ancient arches complement the royal collection showcased at the store. Along with the classic Rajasthani tie-and-dye art of bandhani, the store houses bridal-wear in Indian ethnic as well as contemporary fusion silhouettes and designs including handmade bandhej saris, dupattas and lehngas, gowns, drapes, jumpsuits and kaftans featuring the craftsmanship by artisans of Rajasthan and Gujarat. With the spring-summer bridal season on, The Telegraph created a subtle-glam, contemporary-chic bridal lookbook from the store’s eclectic bridal trousseau in summer hues of ivory, yellow and baby pink complemented with the regal red and bright pink.
"Luxury shopping is an experience that you need to soak in.When I'm dressing up a bride for her big day, she deserves to feel nothing less than a princess! Brides want to try out outfits and want their own customizations and personal touch. The exclusive bridal lounge section of the store has been designed keeping them in mind.The intricate craftsmanship and fine finishing on each outfit along with customizations are our forte. With this bridal lounge, we aim to redefine the Calcutta bride's shopping experience and add an old world vintage charm to it," said Siddhartha Daga, designer.
