Among the many spectacular shows at Lakme Fashion Week, one was that of House of Kotwara, where Bollywood actress Dia Mirza was a showstopper in a beautiful lehenga. Working up neutral hues, Dia Mirza's look was easy, breezy and fuss free, and a welcome change from excessive bling. Here's a quick tete-a-tete with Dia Mirza as she reveals more about her fashion choices, shares hacks and also speaks on her upcoming projects.

What are your fashion preferences?

Dia Mirza: Sustainable, timeless and effortless.

How do you like to dress up on an ordinary day?

Dia Mirza: It depends on what kind of day it is. I wear and enjoy all kinds of garments. Dresses, a pair of denims paired with a t-shirt, or even a salwar kurta.

Please share three fashion hacks.

Dia Mirza: Always keep a small sewing kit in your hand bag, reuse old garments but mix and match or accessore them differently, and choose natural fabrics and long lasting craftsmanship.

Three wardrobe staples for you?

Dia Mirza: Traditional handcrafted sarees, sustainable textile dresses/shirts and resort wear.

How do you like the latest collection of House of Kotwara?

Dia Mirza: I absolutely love it! It speaks of timeless elegance, craftsmanship, femininity and playfulness. Sama reflects her heart in this line. The brand has always evoked a sense of comfort, freedom and beauty in my heart.

How does it feel to walk the ramp every time?

Dia Mirza: You mean the butterflies in the stomach? Oh yes, they arrive. But go away as soon as I step foot on the ramp. Fortunately, I get to choose who I walk for and it's always for people who's craft and brand ethos I care for. So it feels really good.

Do you do rehearsal or just follow your heart while on the ramp?

Dia Mirza: If I get time for a rehearsal, it's always good to see and feel the space in advance, but if a rehearsal cannot be managed then I just go with the flow.

How is working with the online platform different from mainstream media?

Dia Mirza: Nothing is more mainstream than digital in the digital age! It furthers our opportunity to be artistes, offering a democratic platform that gives audiences an intimate viewing experience at the luxury of their time. Making new friends and collaborating with like-minded people is always rewarding, and winning awards for Kaafir was a bonus. But the best part was being able to tell a story we collectively felt so deeply about.

What are you working on?

Dia Mirza: I start filming for Wild Dog with Nagarjuna Sir soon and will be celebrating the release of Thappad on February 28.
