Renowned for infusing authenticity and creativity into her outfits, Shibapriya Sen has meticulously curated a masterpiece inspired by Rajasthani tradition, blending regality with grace. The exquisite bridal ensemble is a symphony of warm hues – Wine, Maroon, Red, and Mustard – all woven into a luxurious velvet fabric. Zardozi and Gota Patti embroidery adorn the attire, showcasing the intricate craftsmanship that breathes life into the attire.

A 15-meter head trail, decked with star patterns, adds a celestial touch to the ensemble. The lehenga features a King and Queen design seated on an elephant, evoking a sense of royal grandeur.

Hailing from the heart of Jaipur, the pure brass and silver jewellery complement the look, with original stones adding a touch of authenticity. The overall ensemble is layered, featuring a dupatta in Sita's hand and the mesmerizing 15kg lehenga. The hand-made embroidery attests to the dedication and skill invested in creating this iconic bridal look. It took 3 days and 18 hours to complete the embroidery and overall, the lehenga took 5 days to get ready.

Portraying the character of Mata Sita, Prachi Bansal shared, “Wearing Sita's wedding outfit with all the heavy jewellery, crown, and hair accessories was quite challenging but it truly makes me feel regal. The outfit weighs 20kgs along with jewellery, and it takes me 2.5 hours to get ready each day. But the positive reception and my acceptance as Sita make it all worthwhile, and I'm grateful for the support and appreciation from the audience.”

Designer Shibapriya Sen shared, “Designing Sita's wedding look was an ethereal experience, where femininity met divinity. I feel blessed to be getting the opportunity to design the wedding looks for Prabhu Shri Ram and Mata Sita and their divine siblings. The costumes and accessories were quite heavy, but the actors have taken it in their stride. We have maintained the sanctity of the occasion through the traditional and pure tapestry craftsmanship and artistry, to achieve the opulence you’d expect when the princes of Ayodhya wed the princess of Mithila.”

Keep watching new episodes of Shrimad Ramayan, every Monday to Friday at 9 PM, only on Sony Entertainment Television.
