From elaborate lehengas to traditional kanjeevaram saris, La’kiru offers a fine collection of luxury bridal wear
launched a couple of weeks ago in Bengaluru, La’Kiru — short for Lakshmi Keerthi, the lady behind the brand—is more than just a wedding boutique. Offering complete wedding solutions, it’s a one-stop shop for everything from invites and themed decor to trousseaus for your big day.
La’Kiru’s garments are luxurious, meant to make a couple feel royal. While you can pick up elaborate ensembles off the shelves, she encourages her clients to get their lehengas and cholis hand-embroidered for that luxe touch. “We ensure that everything we source or create is unique,” shares Keerthi, who started with trousseaus, before branching into full-scale weddings with Rama B Raj, a former client.
Room for opulence
The studio itself is in keeping with Keerthi’s sense of style, which she describes as a mix of “elegance, heritage and tradition with a touch of the contemporary.” Housed at the charming Hatworks Boulevard, ceiling to floor brass wind chimes welcome you into an airy, bright space.
Look out for jewellery, customised by Navrathan jewellers especially for La’Kiru, while off the first room, is a spacious area filled with saris. She favours mainly silk weaves with signature kanjeevarams. Moving along, the next room houses elaborate lehengas displayed along a wall decked, floor to ceiling, with a large hanging brass lotus—also the logo of the brand.
Keerthi has over 50 weddings to her credit already—from a Moroccan-themed sangeet with belly dancers and hookahs to a mandap that was designed to look like something out of an ancient rural South Indian town. Rs.15,000 upwards. At Cunningham Road.
