Meet Oorvi Desai, the couturier and entrepreneur who has been dressing wedding couples for 17 years

Bride and groom in navy and gold outfits designed by Oorvi Desai. Oorvi Desai is a name synonymous with quality and style. For the past 17 years, the esteemed brand has been creating showstopping outfits for brides, grooms and wedding guests. Using unconventional fabrics, texturing and detailing, Oorvi fuses different styles to create unrivalled pieces.

"I have loved fashion since the age of 13," Oorvi explains. "I knew fashion design was what I wanted to study and I was delighted to graduate from the famed Nirmala Niketan College of Home-Science in Mumbai, India with an Honours Degree in Textiles & Clothing." In 1998, Oorvi's dedication and skill was rewarded with the Best Textile Designer Award Mumbai. "I was then awarded a sponsorship towards further studies in Textiles & Fashion at the California University. In 2003, I launched my first fashion house in Mumbai."

With her bold fashion creations, Oorvi carved out her niche as an Indian luxury designer. In 2002, she showcased her high-end collections in London, Leicester and Birmingham, which would end up being a stepping stone to the UK. She now has UK fashion house in London.

In our boutique, we meet the client so they can view our collection and see all the sample fabrics and embroideries available. At this stage, customers will get a chance to try on different outfits to assess the styles that suit them the most. Customers can also experience Oorvi Desai shading, texture and weaving tests, where they can blend and match to make their fantasy outfits.

Customers meet with us again, when they are able to bring any thoughts, including magazine cuttings, color schemes and style ideas. We will propose various alternatives on textures and weaving to blend and match to make the intended outfits. We will at that point sketch the thoughts and style on paper.

When the customer is satisfied with a certain concept, we start working on the initial stage of embroideries and trial fittings, just to make sure everything is perfect. Two samples can be sent to the client so they can decide on which one suits them the best.

During this phase, we can send images of the piece as it is in progress. When all the hand embroidery is done, the outfit goes into stitching. We will then send an image of the stitched piece to the client.

When the outfit is ready, customers usually return for a fitting. On the off chance that there are any minor adjustments, these are done within a couple of days.
