Just as much as the colour red is synonymous to an Indian bride, gota patti is that art form which is very dear to every woman. Be it the traditional suits, saree, lehenga or sharara and gharara sets, every designer is giving the right touch of gota patti to the outfit that it works well for the traditional as well as a contemporary bride. It looks amazing in every colour and brides nowadays are going gaga over this work and are rocking it on their wedding ceremonies like how! And if you need inspiration on how to include gota patti in your lehenga this wedding season, then Ambani bahu, Shloka Mehta is your go-to diva!

Shloka Mehta, daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta and Mona Mehta, is on the board of directors’ panel for Rosy Blue Diamonds and the Co-Founder, Director at ConnectFor. And it was on March 9, 2019, that will be celebrated by the Ambanis for a lifetime as it was then when Shloka had officially become the badi bahu of the family. From lacy to shimmery, heavily-embroidered to sequined or floral, every look of Shloka is etched in our minds and whenever we have to look for any inspiration for ethnic ensembles, she is the one we look for!
Scrolling through social media, we got hold on a throwback picture of Shloka Mehta, dressed in a beautiful lehenga at a function. Shloka looked breathtaking in a pink-coloured lehenga with gota patti work on her dupatta which has left us speechless. Minimal yet so voguish, we're floored by Shloka’s look which she accentuated with minimal makeup, heavy earrings, maang teeka and bangles. We love how Shloka prefers to keep her look as simple and elegant as it can be, and still look like a vision!
Looks like not only Shloka Mehta, but the other two Ambani ladies, Nita Ambani and Isha Ambani Piramal are too fans of the gota patti work. To mark 33 years of Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, the designer duo had posted many throwback, million-dollar pictures of many important starry events and had revealed the significances of those outfits. On August 21, 2019, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla had shared an unseen picture of Nita ji and Isha, looking ethereal in their traditional best. The description on their look could be read as “2007: Gota, a gift from Rajasthan! Gota is a woven metallic ribbon that is crafted with gold or silver wire thread and silk or cotton thread. It is made in Rajasthan and was formerly used mainly as borders and finishes and also as flowers and dots on many north Indian royal outfits. It has been a constant in Abu Sandeep's work over the years and they have kept reinventing its usage on fabric with much success.” (Also Read: 10 Lehenga Looks Donned By Shloka Mehta Which Every Girl Wants To Steal From Her Wardrobe)
The note by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla could be further read as “Here's Nita Ambani and Isha in Bali Gota for Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla's India Fantastique. Their ensembles have multiple borders on the ghagra and dupatta featuring beautiful floral bael motifs. Nita’s ghagra is finished with a peacock Zardozi border, while Isha’s ensemble displays the radiance of a real gold Kuran lace border. An avid aficionado of their work, Nita says - "For me, Abu and Sandeep are the epitome of Indian couture, perfecting the art of beautiful dressmaking and intricate designing. My family and I have been fortunate to have the honour to wear their designs and to share a close bond with the duo." #33YearsOfAJSK.”
On December 3, 2019, celeb makeup artist, Mickey Contractor had posted an ethereal picture of Nita Ambani flaunting a stunning red-coloured gota-patti work lehenga with contrasting blue and pink coloured dupatta. The heavy work on the dupatta had completely complemented the minimal lehenga. Nita ji had accentuated her look with heavy kundan jewellery and her entire look seemed just perfect for the ongoing wedding season. Mickey had captioned the pictures as “Luminous”.
