About the lookbook

Bringing the best of Indian Couture designers in bridal wear, pret, and jewelry to Switzerland was my passion, giving birth to Rikshi fashions. The brand turned 5 years old in April 2023 and we have achieved phenomenal growth, reviews, and success.

Our fabrics are of the finest quality and are decorated with Zardozi, Applique, Gota, and other forms of hand embroidery. The Rikshi designs are made in-house with no replicas available across India.

Rikshi is proud of its extensive use of Zardozi in its creations. Zardozi is a type of heavy metal embroidery on beautiful fabrics such as silk and satin and makes the use of gold and silver threads. The designs are further hand-stitched to include precious stones or beads. As the process is laborious, this type of ‘gold-sewing’ requires the finest craftsmen along with designs that highlight the best of this craft. The Rikshi’s Zardozi work on wedding wear, be it ghararas or lehengas brings sparkle and shine to every special occasion. It’s no wonder the Rikshi’s designs are in demand amongst bride-to-be and fashion connoisseurs.

The brand has also revived the traditional Applique technique which is a decorative form of embroidery. Here, an expert craftsman is able to sew different pieces of fabric together on a larger garment to create stunning designs that are exclusive to the wearer. Just like any other traditional form of design, the Applique technique is uniquely rare and can be created in a variety of styles.
