Blouse is short sleeved, it is made of pure raw silk. It is beautifully embellished.
Lengha skirt is panelled for a really good shape, this too is made of pure raw silk and has large navy blue velvet paisley shaped appliques. It features lots of heavy gold dhabka, zardosi, diamanté stones and gota patti work. It has long straps inside which are worn over the shoulder and tied, this helps to lift the weight of the skirt.

The skirt underlayer is heavily interfaced to give it a little more structure.
Dupatta is made of fine net, this too has the same embellishment work, mostly around the outer edges.
This was worn once for a fashion show very briefly. It is of excellent quality using really good quality fabrics and embellishment work.
Pre-loved in excellent condition.
