How would you describe your design journey?
I’ve been designing for five years now so SFK bridals was a very natural progression for me.
Do you have a muse?
For today’s shoot Anaum is my muse who is truly beautiful and looks stunning in each and every color and every cut.
In life, who would you say is your muse?
I think there are so many well dressed inspirational women across the world so it would be hard to choose one.
What inspires you when you’re designing?
I’m quite a minimalist person anyway and I don’t like ostentatious things, so we always keep that in mind. Motif wise I’ve gone with sticking to patterns, mosaics, florals. As we go further, we’ll develop a signature style so to speak but for now we take inspiration from everything.
How would you describe SFK in three words?
What was the starting point for this particular collection that you showed at Pfdc?
Since I’m a business graduate, I handle the business side of things and work with my design team who develop the khakas and we together we add to the databank for inspiration. For the recent collection, we looked at the moonbow which is quite a rare phenomenon and uncommon.
What are your plans for expanding SFK in the future?
I think Bridals will remain an integral focus and since there is no bigger category then couture we will keep on expanding with that in mind. We have big plans let’s see how they roll out.
