Last year my younger nephew, Balaji got married. I designed and embroidered a maroon silk kurtha for his engagement. Here he is in his engagement attire. He wore a cream narrow salwar [Indian leggings] to match this kurtha.
This fabric was also cut by the tailor and given to me for working the embroidery. The pattern-
The embroidery was done with silk and metallic gold threads- the embroidery detail of the borders.
Balaji loves peacock design. The details of the embroidery on this twin peacocks.

Zardosi beads were stitched on the spaces made by the arches and red stones and beads were added to embellish the border.

I was in a hurry to finish the embroidery and let the tailor do his work.
In India, these days, men’s kurtha are embellished very heavily. I wanted to do this for my nephews. I feel happy seeing the pictures.
