The ‘Made in Heaven’ style guide


Shobhita Dhulipala is on top of every best-dressed list of fictional list characters right now — or at least, Tara Khanna, the character she plays in Amazon Prime Original series, Made in Heaven, is. And she has costume designer Poornamrita Singh to thank for it.

The show’s outfits have drawn a lot of attention, not just on social media, but also in the retail sector. Cashing in on the hype, Amazon Fashion too has a dedicated space on their shopping platform, featuring wedding styles and luxury beauty from the show, and home decor inspired by the sets. The Indian equivalents of Fashion Nova are already hard at work, replicating Tara’s cocktail sari and printed blue top.

Having worked with series directors Zoya Akhtar (Dil Dhadakne Do, Gully Boy), Alankrita Shrivastava (Turning 30) and Reema Kagti (Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.) on earlier projects, Singh knew what would be required of her. For The Hindu, she explains what went into creating each distinct look. The common thread, she says: “I didn’t want the clothing to overpower or overshadow the character or what they were saying.”
