From the first consultation to the final fitting, each Talking Threads couture dress is meticulously designed, precisely engineered and intricately hand-crafted. Over a series of appointments the client will see her dress develop at every stage towards its beautiful completion.


Designing a dress with Talking Threads is a joyous affair and the renowned service is professional, unhurried and exclusive to every client. Clients are given complete carte blanche to pick and personalise every element of their dress from a collection of over 100 different styles, 70 fabrics, 1500 embroideries and 2000 colours. From full skirted lehengas, to mermaids and draped sarees or creating a future heirloom, working together the designer and client co-create her personal vision of perfection. Design decided – the couture dress-making process begins.


A Talking Threads couture dress is created using the skilled craftsmanship of the specialist atelier team of fitters, pattern-cutters, seamstresses, embroiderers and finishers. Over a series of appointments the team works fastidiously to turn the design sketch into a stunning and unique outfit.

Once the design has been finalised, there is the initial measuring appointment followed by calico toile fittings, where the lines of the dress are defined to compliment the body’s curves and the shape is perfected before the final fabric is cut. There are then further fittings before the final check fitting, as close to the wedding or event date as possible, to ensure the dress is absolutely perfect.


Beautiful bespoke embellishment is a Talking Threads design signature and one of the reasons why the designer is the go-to atelier for those looking to create an exclusive couture embroidered piece. From luxurious silks with hand embroidered zardozi, from French lace with hand-embroidered pearls, custom diamanté detail on a sweeping veil to an heirloom worthy Parsi Gara or Kashidakari piece incorporating the client’s vision– it’s these personal touches that take a regular couture experience to the next level of impeccable design.
