How did you get into the business?
As certified Image Consultants, we understood the dynamics involved in planning a wardrobe depending on your body shape, color palettes and lifestyle preference along with personal style. Applying the same mechanism to weddings, we could successfully create varied wedding trousseau ideas for our brides and grooms. Thus dawned the concept of Wedding Styling & Personal Shopping.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
Weddings in India or anywhere in the world are a grand affair, the enthusiasm of a bridal party, the grandeur, the planning is all very exciting and of course, we do specialize in converting Bridezillas into BrideChillas!!
If you could pick one unique product or service offering, which would be your favorite, and why?
Our Personal Shopping or Wedding Shopping for our brides is most special, the moment when you know it’s the one and the reactions you get from the bridal party when you have found that dream outfit, is beautiful feeling always. With about 10 brides under our belt, this feeling never fails to seize.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned, and would pass along to others just getting started in your field?
Every client is different and camouflaging our way to suit each has been our biggest learning. Learning to adapt to difficult situations, thinking on your feet and relating to them as friends rather than clients is imperative.
What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?
We are hard task masters. When we aren’t shopping for one of our brides or calming nerves of another, we are researching about the ever-changing bridal fashion in India.
Any great stories from working with a client?
Every bride is a learning curve and every wedding is a challenge we face heads on, it’s tricky to pick one.
What makes you different from others in your field?
Our attention to detail, client servicing and going that extra mile to calm our brides definitely separates us from the rest.
Are there any trends that you absolutely love or would love to see brides leave behind?
Traditional Indian brides have been wearing Reds since time immemorial, We as your personal stylists and image consultants understand the perfect red to enhance your personal coloration, but we also strongly believe that there is more than mere reds for a wedding. Brides now are experimenting with colors and we as flag bearers would love to see varied colors on a bride.
What tips or advice can you give to couples who are in the midst of planning their big day?
If you are planning to make a trip to India, I highly recommend hiring a wedding stylist or a personal shopper. We have an inexhaustive resource here in India, and hiring a chaperone helps in streamlining your options, saves you time and your dime.
