Saleem stated that Bakhtawar’s chiffon was handmade regionally. “As a brand, we make use of the best local material [for bridal dresses] available in Pakistan,” she stated.
When requested whether or not she felt nervous on designing the gown for Bakhtawar’s large day, Saleem stated it wasn’t true. “You can say were excited and not under pressure,” she stated, including that the workforce loved engaged on the gown understanding how a lot confidence Bakhtawar had on their model.
Saleem referred to Bakhtawar as a “dream bride” for any model, saying that within the very first few conferences held between the 2 to debate the gown, Bakhtawar advised them that she did not have any doubt on their capabilities.
“We did hold a few discussions on the customisaton of the dress,” she stated. “However, Bakhtawar never interfered in our work.”
Saleem revealed that it took 45 craftsmen to work on Bakhtawar’s bridal gown, including that they spent an enormous 7,000 hours in making the gown.
