The main thing I stumbled on and which proved to be an issue was that they didn't have many examples of the types of kaam (embroidery) they could do on an outfit, its well and good to discuss on the phone but I would have liked to have seen swatches/samples and close up photos to give me an idea…
My outfit on the whole is very pretty and pretty much what I had requested cut wise, it has a lot of flair and the lining and churidaar are also both very good quality..
The main thing I felt let down by was the kaam… I specifically said I do not like sequins and this is what I got all across the bodice!
The work below the bodice was lovely however, the sequins were the most prominent.
I am not going to complain too much as I like the outfit in general but when you’re paying designer prices you do feel let down when a main element isn't quite 100%. The other issue which has cropped up many times in the past (not just a RE issue but something I suffer from across the board) is that chiffon just isn't durable – after just a few wears the sleeves are completely ruined and stitching has come undone on one of the kalis… For the price paid I would have liked to have the option to wear it again but it’s in a bit of a state now…
What I love is the kaam they did on the daaman and if they had done the same on the top this would have been a 10/10 outfit for me, again this small issue could have been rectified if only they had provided good quality close ups of the kaam offered.
On the whole I got many compliments on this outfit and did enjoy wearing it – would I recommend Rani Emann? I think so – I've seen many a glowing review especially where bridals are concerned and so would like to put my own issue down to mis-communication – perhaps if I had been more specific from my end and sent pictures of what I wanted rather than relying on them I may have ended up with the perfect outfit!
