With her relentless push and constant innovation, Bridal Asia has become a luxury force to reckon with winning accolades and recognition globally.
Hailing from Dhanbad, she was a Science student and was aiming to pursue a career in Architecture. However, her marriage brought her to Delhi and it was the beginning of a new career in entrepreneurship. Given her keen eye for aesthetics and unwavering quest for beauty, she initiated a cultural dialogue with the weavers from the Kolkata School. Later the aesthete went on to do a course in Gemology where she recontextualized stones and metals in a whole new game-changing design palette in jewelry.
Divya's penchant for the dynamism of design eventually culminated in the mega event `Bridal Asia'. Grasping the growing importance of weddings getting the ‘designer’ tag, she decided to offer a complete 360-degree solution to the new-age brides, who were ready to push the envelope for that ‘perfect’ wedding. She scouted the country for real design talent and even crossed the boundary to create a chic cornucopia of bridal extravaganza where she curated the finest in bridal attire, jewellery, home concepts and exciting accessories. Carefully handpicked from around the country and subcontinent by Divya, the first Bridal Asia way back in 1999 was a thoughtfully selected group of 40 participants that set the blueprint for India’s largest Bridal extravaganza. Over the years, the number of participants since the first exhibition had amplified tremendously and so has the legion of Bridal Asia loyalists. She singlehandedly transcended geographical boundaries by encouraging overseas participants. Crafting a new lexicon of bridal retail, haute couture and luxe bridal services
