Update on the Eastenders Asian Wedding - Chelsea's mehndi outfit


We already had a behind the scenes look at the Eastenders Asian Wedding, (click here to check it out if you missed it) but it wasn't just the bride that everybody was talking about! Another outfit which caught the eye of many viewers was the mehndi outfit the character "Chelsea" wore, played by actress Tiana Benjamin.

Jasmin, from Jusst Pink, who designed this outfit got in touch with me to tell me a bit more about dressing a character for a big tv asian wedding.

It all started with a visit from the Eastenders costume design team. They explained their ideas and Jasmin drew some sketches, talked through fabric and colour choices and the final design was chosen: an asian outfit with a Victorian twist!


Similar outfits were also created in pink for other characters/extras who took part in the mehndi episode.

So now you know - if you fancy an outfit straight off the tv, Jusst Pink are based on Green Street in East London.

  3. I bought an outfit from this shop, in fact, the dress I designed is still displayed as one of their pictures in the store! Its a lovely shop and the customer service is great, but you have to be willing to pay the extra cost, cos it doesn't come cheap, as my dress came up to nearly £400!
