TeamMissMalini (TeamMM): Tell us how did you fall in love with fashion?

Adarsh Gill (AG): I went to New York in the 70’s.Its such a fashionable city, that’s when my love affair with fashion began.I decided to join a fashion institute. After finishing my degree, I decided to launch my own label SAZ which was an instant success and I got great coverage in the press and magazines including the front page in the New York Times, that’s how the journey started.

TeamMM: Tell us what do you plan on showcasing this time around?

AG: Bridal wear remains invariably the same but with different treatment and different silhouettes. The colours will be bright as in  jewel colours.Styles will be more of an Indo -Western mix.Fusion is here to stay

TeamMM: What’s been your most memorable bridal experience?  

AG: The wedding I remember I did for a client in San Francisco.I dressed the bridesmaids the Mother,the groom and the bride herself.The colours, the flower decorations,the tables and the entire wedding was spectacular.It was like a dreamland.It was a great experience.The other memorable experience was dressing the young Sethia Bride and Groom for their wedding in Udaipur recently.

TeamMM: Tell us what do you plan on showcasing this time around?

AG: I have showcased my signature style yet experimented with doing newer things; I have created a look which is a fusion of East and West with an Indian spirit.The embellishments and embroideries are an eclectic mix of geometric patterns with floral motifs and meticulous attention has been paid to detail.

TeamMM: Any advice for brides-to-be?

AG:Yes of course, don’t forget to enjoy and relax. It is important not to get over stressed. So, do smile all the way and live this moment to the fullest as it will be one of the most memorable one of your life.
