Sarah Karim, owner of Sarah Karim Couture, showcased one of her exquisite creations worn by the renowned Kolkata-born British chef, restaurateur, and author, Asma Said Khan, during an event at Buckingham Palace, London. 

Her signature zardozi craftsmanship in the outfit caught the attention of both Queen Camilla and King Charles III.

Asma Said Khan received an invitation to participate in a reception honouring Britain's humanitarian workers, organized by the Royal family on November 8. 

Asma later shared moments from this regal evening on her social media platforms, and thanked her cousin, Sarah Karim, for designing the gorgeous outfit. 

“It’s a grey and rainy day in London - thanks to Sarah Karim I have something beautiful to wear that is also comfortable and warm! My first time going to the palace for a reception. In these difficult times- it is good to see the king inviting people who are working in humanitarian relief in war zones and areas of natural disasters,” she wrote on Facebook.

For years, Sarah Karim Couture has established itself as one of the luxury fashion houses in Bangladesh. Their outfits are the ultimate image of royalty, glamour and sensuality. 

Sarah Karim's journey into the world of design started as a hobby. 

She used to help her grandmother-in-law with her brand Al Ehsan. The brand specialized in detailed zardosi, aari work, gotapatti and embroidery dating back to the Mughal Era.

Now, a consistent and central theme runs through all of Sarah Karim's designs -- a pleasant blend of classic aesthetics coupled with contemporary cuts. 

Each of her outfits undergoes a rigorous process, transitioning from initial sketches to the realization of tangible designs. 

The fusion of classic with modern design is what makes her unique from the rest.
