Who is Shloka Khialani? According to the internet, we don’t know a whole lot. She’s shrouded in mystery—not in a salacious way, but in a calm before she takes the fashion world by storm sort of way.
Here’s what we do know about Shloka Khialani. She is, in fact, one person. Not 4 designers like MadSam TinZin, or 2 like married couple Shyamal and Bhumika. Shloka started her eponymous fashion label at the ripe young age of 25—an age, mind you, when I was still blacking out at every Midtown bar in Atlanta (makin’ my parents proud since ‘87).
We know that she’s recently married herself, and that the bride wore white.
Tack me onto the growing list of Shloka devotees. I may not own any of her pieces myself, but I did spend hours staring at every design I could find—and they’re exquisite.
Sets in strong monochromatic colors. Blouses, dupattas, and lehengas richly decorated with zari (a fine thread of silver or gold). Flowing and figure flattering fabrics that create movement reminiscent of the sculpting greats (think Giovanni Strazza’s The Veiled Virgin).
In isolation, each element of her designs is impressive. Combined, it’s a symphony. No one feature overpowers another. They coexist in balance and harmony.
Compared to other popular South Asian bridal designers like Anita Dongre or Sabyasachi, the price for a Shloka Khialani outfit is more affordable.
Guests can find wedding worthy outfits as low as $400. On average, most of her pieces are around $800 (works for both guests and brides). And bridal wear specific designs are listed online for as high as $2,000.
