In a previous post, Sabyasachi said that 110 embroiderers from Kolkata took 3,720 hours to create the gorgeous outfit.

Watch the making of Priyanka Chopra's wedding lehenga here:
"While some bride stay rooted in purist tradition, others aspire to re-interpret it to suit their personalities... Priyanka Chopra's neo-traditional bridal lehenga was the result of an active collaboration between the designer and the bride. The Kanauj Rose lehenga remains a Sabyasachi house classic for women who like to marry global tradition with Indian heritage," Sabyasachi said in a statement posted on his Instagram page.
Sabyasachi also said that a tonal red bridal lehenga was first a part of his 2012 couture collection "New Moon" and three years later it was later updated for a couture show with Christian Louboutin.
