Emma Watson's new film titled Beauty and the Beast is already making waves around the world. Along with her intense acting, Emma Watson's Belle is also being hailed for her gorgeous costumes.
And these costumes apparently, have an Indian connection. No, we're not kidding!
Some of Belle's dresses have intricate embroideries that have been crafted by Indian artisans.
Sinéad O’Sullivan, the assistant costume designer of the movie, posted few snaps on Instagram to appreciate the toil and efforts of all the designers who contributed towards Belle's costumes and dresses.
She lauded the commendable efforts of artisans Kasam and Juma from Bhuj, Gujarat who embellished her French floral designs with their beautiful Aari Work.
Aari work is a fine chain stitch embroidery, a special form of design in Kutch area of Gujrat which will now feature worldwide courtesy: Belle and her pretty gowns.
Another feather added to the Indian artists' already overcrowded cap!
