Minal Khan and Ahsan Mohsin Ikram’s wedding has been the talk of the town over the past week, with the bride’s looks taking centre stage in most discussions about the festivities. For the baraat, the Jalan star donned a heavily embellished cranberry-coloured traditional bridal pishwas, complete with gold detailing. The pishwas was paired with a tailed lehenga to add a touch of royalty to the look.
The designer of the dress, Annus Abrar, took to Instagram to share the painstaking process of bringing the dress from the drawing board to life. Sharing pictures of Minal in the dress, the designer wrote, “Minal looks like a dream in a floor-length pishwas paired with farshi lehenga in shades of raspberry pink and red incorporated with handcrafted zardozi and kamdani detailing.”
Days after Minal’s September 10 wedding, Abrar gave a deeper insight into the creation of her dress, taking to his Instagram stories to share videos and pictures of artisans at work. “Making of Minal’s bridal. Stunning shade of cranberry red with deep maroon applique incorporated with kamdani and zardozi,” he shared.
Abrar also shared that the elaborate bridal had 38 kalis (panels), which gave the dress the perfect twirl-worthy volume. “Over 55 artisans worked day and night to create this magical piece of couture,” he said, likening it to a ‘creative village’ at work.
After a long and stellar events, Minal and Ahsan finally tied the knot in a glittering event among friends and family on September 10.
