While ordering online I'm receiving this message: "Sorry. Your session has expired. Please try again." Why ?
This message may appear in two cases. The first would be if too much time is taken between adding products to the basket and checking out. The other could be your browser history conflicting with your current order. In this case, clear your browser cache and try ordering again. If you are still facing problems you can ask for a Personalised Payment Invoice OR use any of several alternate payment options as listed here .
I'm having trouble ordering online. I'm receiving server error messages. Why and what can I do about it ?
For your protection, we have elaborate Security Software built into our Payment Gateway. Should you be ordering from an insecure server, this software automatically disables the Payment Gateway. In this case please contact us for a completely secure personal payment invoice OR use any of several alternate payment methods listed in our How To Order page.
What sizes are your products available in ?
All our products are tailor-made from scratch. We work with your measurements or size as provided during order.
Products can also be provided unstitched on request. (not valid for ready-to-ship products)
How do I submit my measurements ?
Easy! After processing your online order, e-mail detailed actual body measurements of HEIGHT, BUST, UNDER-BUST, WAIST and HIPS to firstname.lastname@example.org. In case any other measurements be required, our production department will contact you later. (measurements can also be entered in special instructions box at checkout)

I love the outfits in your gallery. However, I want small changes made, like long sleeves instead of short, longer blouse to cover my midriff, etc. is it possible?
Yes, all special requests are accommodated. While most changes are free of cost, any substantial changes resulting in extra cost for us may result in a marginal change in price. Details of ALL Changes/ Special Instructions MUST be repeated via email after order.
We have recently had cases, where the customer has expected his/her order to be executed, incorporating changes suggested by customer via email, weeks even months before actual date of order. We will NOT check email history before executing an order. If no email containing Special Instructions / Changes is received AFTER order is placed, order will be executed without any changes.
Am I getting Original Bollywood Outfits and Jewellery ?
No. All Bollywood Outfits are only inspired by those worn by Movie Stars and are made exactly in the same style. Please be aware that very slight insignificant differences may occur, due to all outfits being completely handmade. (No two pieces of any Handworked Product can ever be exactly the same as each pair of hands will have it's own style of working.) Also be warned that wearing an outfit, similar to one worn by a star, will not necessarily make you look like that star!
Please Note: most original movie costumes are made for single use with cheap poly-mix fabrics. These fabrics have a shiny finish that looks good on screen but is quite tacky otherwise. All our Bollywood Inspired outfits are made from lush fabrics such as Pure Silk, Satin etc, so you are actually getting an improved product.
My outfit is not the exact shade of cream as the outfit shown on your site ?
Please be aware that actual color may differ slightly from that shown. While the essential color will remain the same, that is pastel pink will be pastel pink and turquoise will be turquoise, the actual shade may differ. Minor differences in exact shade of color differ due to lighting differences, individual photographer styles, film development differences, scanner differences and individual pc monitor color settings. See Shade Chart 1 and Shade Chart 2 .
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL WHITES ARE NATURAL - BRIGHT WHITES NOT AVAILABLE (TO AVOID BLEACHING CARCINOGENS)
