This Bride Embroidered Her Love Story Onto Her One-Of-A-Kind Wedding Dress

“For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of designing my own wedding clothes."

Many women find the perfect wedding dress, but few actually create their own. Indian fashion designer Krésha Bajaj Zaveri managed to do both. 

"For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of designing my own wedding clothes," she said in a blog post. "When I told my family I was going to make all my own clothes under my brand Koecsh, they weren't surprised, but at the same time they urged me to reconsider ...  However, it was something I felt strongly about and I started conceptualizing my own clothes."


Because her fiancé Vanraj Zaveri wanted a traditional Indian wedding, she knew she would be wearing a a lehenga, a long, traditional Indian skirt. Vanraj also wanted them both to wear white and gold. "All these things weren't me at all!" Krésha said. 

But because she was so excited to start her life with him and celebrate their marriage, she was happy to oblige. 

Krésha wanted her original dress to be framed as an art piece after the wedding, an idea she got from Adrienne Maloof after watching her onThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. 

"In order to have a piece of artwork up on our wall, it had be something meaningful, something we wouldn't get sick of looking at, and the one thing I knew we wouldn't get sick of looking at was our love story," she said. 

Krésha divided the bottom of the skirt into seven sections. Each one depicted a milestone from her and Vanraj love story.

She used traditional embroidery techniques to sew in moments, such as their proposal in the Maldives to the wedding planning. Her goal was that if you looked from left to right on the skirt, you'd see the couple's story unfold in front of you. 

The bottom of the skirt was finished with a hem of jumping dolphins symbolizing how they met. Their love story began after the pair worked together at a protest against cetacean captivity.

The couple's names are also hand sewn into the skirt, but they're camouflaged as a chevron pattern. 

"My favorite part was all the detailing that was in the lehenga. From afar it looked like stunning zari and embroidery work, but the closer you went to it, the more our cherished memories unraveled," Krésha said.
