Classic yet contemporary are what define Sheffali Hegde Rai’s designs. Sheffali frequently exhibits abroad for NRI clients who love the majestic and chic looks she creates.
Hot pink and pista green net saree
The hot pink and pista green saree is fashioned on net with a velvet border. Swarovski and diamante with pitta work on the border and buttis all over—for the sangeet, reception or an evening event.
Peacock green double layered lehenga
The duppatta is pre-attached to the corset giving the illusion of a saree drape. The two layered lehenga with a fitted hip belt embellished with silver, diamantes and pearls oozes style & elegance.
Mango and sea green anarkali with antique work
Net and raw silk Anarkali heavily embellished with antique silver, pearls and colored stones. To balance the traditional look, it has one shoulder and a contemporary texture on the torso.
Reddish maroon lehenga with antique kundan work
Reddish maroon fitted lehenga with a brocade and silk corset. The antique kundan, pearl work with silver and diamante all over the skirt give it a very rich look. If you’re wearing it for the wedding, team it with heavy kundan or uncut jewelery and drape the dupatta over your head for a very traditional look.
Purple and green net and brocade lehenga
The colors are modern but the styling traditional. Perfect for brides who do not like to go the ‘red’ way, worn with a velvet choli with long brocade sleeves and a net lehenga with a brocade skirt underneath.
