Rani Sushma Kumari Singh of Sahaspur Bilari has grown up watching elders wearing chiffon dresses. At present, she loves working with the fabric as she thinks it is perfect for the Indian climate. The flowing light fabric helps display workmanship, she says. Her dress code is florals and pastels for the day, dark colours and louder prints for the night and embroidered chiffon with zardozi, sequins and pearls for a special occasion. She works with silk, gold and silver-based threads. Her most prized possession is a tissue saree handed down by her grandmother.
