If we were to quote an example in timeless style and grace, just uttering Dia Mirza’s name would more than suffice. The actress became a sustainability champion way before it turned into the favourite buzzword of the fashion world and has stayed true to her ideals ever since. With her arsenal of comfy yet standout fashion picks, Dia has consistently proven that one can indeed mix effortless style with ethical choices. Today, she can very well be labelled the poster child of conscious Indian fashion and each one of her recent fashion outings has been proof enough.
From her resplendent bridal look to her breezy maternity fits, Dia has surely kept us on our toes with her impeccable fashion game this year. She recently turned showstopper for designer Sanjev Marwaaha and left us smitten in an ivory and gold lehenga set. We got an opportunity to catch up with the actress post Marwaaha’s show and talked to her about her personal style, bridal look, and wardrobe essentials. Edited excerpts below:
My personal style is a reflection of who I am as a person so I’d say it is effortless, comfortable, and easy. I choose garments that are sustainable and textiles that one can celebrate.
I love everything about Sanjev’s new collection. It is ethnic, it is beautiful, it’s delicate, it’s ethereal, and it’s absolutely stunning.
The most beautiful thing about being an Indian bride is that you can really celebrate the traditional inheritance of handicrafts. It is a centuries-old legacy that we get to embody and take forward. I love the fact that Indian brides get to wear some of the richest textiles and celebrate some of the most beautiful handicrafts.
I was inspired by nature and the fact that we have this great inheritance and wanted to celebrate that. More than anything else, I realised that it is the bridal garment that you should be able to wear again. It should not be something that you just wear on the big day and put away. So I opted for a forever garment—a saree. I know I’d be able to wear it on different occasions and in different ways and I look forward to repeating it.
Less is more has always been my mantra. I really care for grace and elegance and think that your own personality should shine in whatever you wear.
