Designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla remind us about their beautiful creation for Madhuri Dixit's character Chandramukhi in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas.

'2002: Mesmerizing Madhuri Dixit in the iconic Devdas Mirror Lehenga,' Abu-Sandeep post with an image of the elaborate outfit.

'Seen in Devdas, this handcrafted ghagra features real mirrors embedded in the fabric with Zardozi embroidery. The flared, 10 panelled wonder took an entire team of highly skilled artisans two months to make and it weighs ten kilos as a set. 2015 saw the ghagra being featured at 'The Fabric of India' exhibit held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

'Abu Sandeep visualized Chandramukhi as Meera -- a devotee of Lord Krishna. They saw her similarly devoted to Devdas and used colours, fabrics and accessories to express the subtleties of the enthralling but unfulfilled courtesan played by the legendary @madhuridixitnene
