It was so nice to wear my deshi Dhakai Jamdani at the event. When it comes to Jamdani, I never think about anything other than Aarong ! Thanks for arranging such an exclusive one within a very short time. Special thanks to Asif Bhai who simply said ‘Yes’ to Jamdani when I expressed my interest to wear one from Aarong.”
