‘I think the biggest mistake people do is that they do not know when to stop,’ designer Payal Khadwala shares insights on the right bridal attire and the celebrity she’d like to dress.
Payal Khandwala is an ace designer with her creations worn by big divas like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra and many more. Her aesthetic is an amalgamation of traditional Indian textiles with a touch of modernity. Balance in silhouettes, styles and colours is what her brand embodies. So in an EXCLUSIVE interview with Pinkvilla, she shares her idea of the perfect bridal attire and the upcoming trends to look out for.
1. Your work is an amalgamation of Indian textiles with western silhouettes, what was your thought process behind it and how did it lead you to the kind of work you present?
– This for me is an overall umbrella with which I work for any case – for our pret collections to even the way I dress. So even when we launched our store in 2014, we were doing exactly this. We were using Indian textiles whether it was brocade or its just silk or hand-woven sarees. Our idea was to do with a different prism and not do what was expected. So we took the fabrics and turned them into silhouettes we care about and even wear. So as far as the philosophy of the brand goes, we try to keep the soul of it Indian and in the spirit of it all we like to keep it more international. Our idea is that the wearer should not feel like she’s putting on a costume of sorts.
