Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
Why Elie Saab?
Elie Saab has been my dream from when I studied at parson the new school of design and a part of the aesthetic of my brand Shriya Som is majorly influenced by Elie Saab. So that was an obvious choice to choose him as one of the designers I would wear!
You being a designer, what were your inputs given for the Elie Saab outfit?
As a designer keeping the fit, finish and the entire quality of the garment is what I look for and mainly that the garment fits my personality as well as I how I feel in it. I would never change the design of the particular designer I chose to wear since I would like them to stay true to there own aesthetic.
Can you shed light on your bridal look in terms of makeup, accessories?
I decided to have fun with the looks! Each look has a different theme for it which I work on with Namrata Soni. E.g. the soirée a more boho bride with a touch of Indian, my Marchesa reception gown is more of a classic look etc
Are you wearing any of your designed outfit for any of the wedding affairs? If yes, plz tell us about the outfit.
Yes, I am wearing a yellow lehenga from my label for the 4th brunch which is an “Indian Renaissance” theme at home. Inspiration of the flowers come from Daisy ’s, sunflowers, daffodils. So tonnes of bright happy yellows, offwhite and whites, highlighted with delicate French knots and Swarovski crystals. Keeping my SS18 theme in mind with the yellows as well as incorporating a bit of a fun ruffle into it!
Anything traditional that you will be wearing it on your wedding day given by your mom?
I’ll be wearing antique Gadwal Jewelry that’s an heirloom from my dad’s side of the family, as well as a Gadwal sari.
Pre-wedding ceremonies were of course grand, what should we expect from the wedding? Are we seeing your close Bollywood and Tollywood friends?
Yes, I have invited a few close Bollywood and Tollywood friends of mine.
Lastly, how has your life influenced after Anindith came into your life? Just a few days for the wedding how do you feel? All jitters?
I’ve known Anindith all my life. We were in the same grade from the 5th till we went to college. So it’s literally like I’m marrying my best friend and deff no jitters 🙂
