The style dates back to the mughal era and is contemporized in style but in essence has kept the embroidery traditon of the old zardozi craftsmanship.The ensemble is made up of a kurta, farshi paijama and a dupatta. The upper half or paat of the paijama is made of gold net and lined with tanchoi silk brocade and the lower half or gote is made of green and turq stripes of patched silk sewn together diagonally. Each stripe is designed with stylized floral designs. The elaborate borders placed on both the paat and the gote seams are finished in a style typical of the Hyderabadi court, a city which Dia has lived in for many years. The dupatta has been embroidered by master craftsmen with a lineage from the Avadh court. The kurta is decorated with zardozi around the neckline. A similar design is embroidered on the ground of the second emerald green dupatta in alternate rows of curling vines and stylized floral motifs. The main dupatta has a special motif embroidered on the part that covers the hair.
