The girly elements were all there – ribbons and ruffles included – and it was clear that Syomirizwa Gupta wanted his collection pieces in FashionValet Bridal to highlight the bride’s best features on her big day. Looking natural is one thing, but we found out more as we quizzed him about all things bridal.
What does the ideal bride look like?
In my opinion, the ideal bride should look exactly like how she is but in her best version, without looking like someone else.
Tell us your favourite materials to work with when designing a wedding gown.
When it comes to materials, especially for weddings, my favourite will always be chiffon, crepe and duchess satin. They give dresses a certain elegance and drape to the silhouette.
What is your number one advice to all brides who are hunting for “the dress” ?
Understand your body type! Think of a type of look or theme that suits you and your personality. The bride needs to know which part she wants to emphasise and which part she wants to hide.
What do brides often forget to look for in a wedding dress?
Please remember to be yourself and always remember that classic lines last forever. You’d want to revisit your wedding photos and think you looked good then even after 20 years!
