When asked about the inspiration for the dress Shinde pointed it towards the Phulkari motifs. She wanted to celebrate the Punjabi roots of Harnaaz Sandhu but did not want to make it literal.

Harnaz Sandhu’s dress took 25 days and multiple fittings in making.

Harnaaz made a special request to Shinde and wanted the dress to create minimum wastage. So the designer used materials that were already available in inventory. Dress has Swarovski chain crystals and beads arranged in traditional Phulkari motifs.

Designer Saisha Shinde changed her gender and name from Swapnil Tulsidas Shinde to Saisha Tulsidas Shinde earlier this year in June.
