Treasure Trunk Tales – Uttar Pradesh

A typical style of Uttar Pradesh to combine hand weaves with intricate and rich zardozi, the lehenga in Indian pink was made for the Rani of Seohara, the late Rani Hirawati who hailed from the riyasat of Raja Ka Tajpur that was next door to Seohara. Married to Kunwar Hari Raji Singh, this costume was one of the first poshaks she created for herself in her in-law’s palace.
