Bandbaajaa - Pick out your favorite bridal color for this wedding season.

Anita – I love red as it complements Indian brides in the most obvious yet stunning manner. My collection does play around with hues of red but for the ongoing wedding season, I am also crushing on Rani Pink and Orange. So these three I would say are my favorite!


Bandbaajaa - What is special about showcasing your collection ‘Epic Love’ at the Vogue Wedding Show?

Anita - The best part about the Vogue Wedding Show is that there are hundreds of brides here. Be it the newly-weds or the brides-to-be, they come and hug me, thank me, appreciate my designs and I feel all of this is so gratifying. It’s also such a pleasure as I am with a woman on the most important day of her life making her feel confident in my designs. The Vogue Wedding Show in all is just precious to me.

Bandbaajaa - Which type of bride is your all-time favorite?

Anita - Even though I love every characteristic in a bride but a Bohemian bride pleases me the most. Also, brides who come back to me two years after purchasing their bridal lehenga and are open to customizing it in order to reuse it for some other event are the coolest. There’s nothing wrong with pairing an ethnic bridal lehenga with a contemporary top or adding some quirky changes so that the lehenga can be worn to another family wedding.  



Bandbaajaa - Which is that one ‘Anita Dongre’ exclusive style advice every bride-to-be should swear by?

Anita - It is very important to be your own self on your special day. Look at yourself, analyze your likes and dislikes and accordingly choose the color and style of your bridal outfit. It is good to take cues from ongoing trends but avoid getting carried as in the end, you will feel comfortable wearing what you always wanted to.

Bandbaajaa - The world affectionately calls you the ‘Queen of Pret.’ Do you agree?

Anita – Of course I’m the ‘Queen of Pret’ but can’t I be the ‘Queen of Couture’ too? (laughs) I love designing bridal couture as I try and have as much fun as I can to create something unusual and something that my brides will love. Also, it’s a refreshing change to design an outfit for a woman’s most important day. All this just makes me enjoy the process even more!
