Our verdict – These are no repeats so you can be assured of wearing something for the party that is not common. Kurtas with chudi sleeves, cotton ethnic wear with borders in brocade and in vibrant seasonal notes are good picks here. A perfect finish on the sleeves and borders is what makes the designer clothes sought after apart from the stunning combination of colors and structuring that goes into flattering your figure. Sterling silver earrings are chic. So are the purses. The staff is friendly and you can get the ensemble altered to fit your size.
