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.
Dia Mirza: Sustainable, timeless and effortless.
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.
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.
Dia Mirza: Traditional handcrafted sarees, sustainable textile dresses/shirts and resort wear.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Dia Mirza: I start filming for Wild Dog with Nagarjuna Sir soon and will be celebrating the release of Thappad on February 28.Comments
