We were blown away by Deepika Padukone‘s pictures that landed on our Insta feed last week. She truly looked like a millennial queen, ready to slay the day. The whole look definitely got everyone talking, but we were most enthralled by the custom-made peplum gown she wore that night.
The maker of this structural art piece is none other than ace designer Amit Aggarwal. His signature style came through with this design and it also perfectly aligned with Deepika’s style. In a very new-age way, he gave us an insight into the making of this gown with 3 engaging Instagram posts. The construction of the dress was inspired by the delicacy of dandelion flowers—Here’s how he described the experience:
I’ve often closed my eyes and blown the petals of a dandelion flower to make a wish. The simple pleasure of wishing is sometimes a greater joy than its fulfilment. The dress for Deepika started with a wish that she would one day wear something specially made for her by our studio.
The video he shared brought the above description to life for the audience and was mesmerising, to say the least. It also explained how much detailed mastery goes into the making of such a couture number. Check out how it’s done in the video below:

The Deepika Dandelion dress. I wanted to create something that imbibed qualities of being effortless yet graceful, simple yet eternal , modern yet deep rooted. I looked upon the form and detail of a dandelion flower for inspiration. It's simple form yet intricate structure, its ability to sway with the wind and spreading its petals to carry million wishes. A weightless spherical form was created through a ruffle like structure. It was then detailed with radiating lines done with our signature polymer strips on a very gossamer chanderi and intricately beaded with a million tiny crystals almost emulating the lightness of a swaying dandelion. The simple stem of the flower created the column like silhouette at the bottom. @shaleenanathani @deepikapadukone #amitaggarwalcouture #makeawish #deepikapadukone #amitaggarwal #couture #fashion #madeinindia #makeinindia #amitaggarwalstudio #womensfashion #bollywood #inspiration
