Sujata Assomull Editor of Harper’s Bazaar is marrying her ex colleague Jaideep Sippy this month-end. Mumbai’s fashion and style community are looking forward to the wedding functions at Blue Frog, Mayfair Rooms and the Regal Room at The Trident. Sujata’s friends can’t wait to see how the ace stylist will style her own wedding look. Sujata, who has styled high-profile fashion shoots for so many years, says she didn’t have trouble figuring out whom she wanted to wear—because since long she always dreamt of wearing a Tarun Tahiliani on her big day. She says: “Tarun Tahiliani and Anamika Khanna—both designers know what I want and always design what I like. Anamika has designed my dresses for the Mehndi and Sangeet function. And I’m wearing a Tarun Tahiliani for the Wedding and Reception.” For the pre-wedding party at Blue Frog, Sujata is wearing a gown by the world renowned New York based boutique Oscar de la Renta. Jaideep’s wear is from Hemant Sagar and JJ Valaya.
On Wedding Planning, Sujata says she experienced the biggest stress on figuring out the date. “There wasn’t one date which was convenient to all us—me, Jaideep, our parents and our close family and friends. Finally, we zeroed in on this date in May. If Tarun Tahiliani knows what she wants on the look and clothes front, on Wedding arrangements, Sujata says her Mom knows best. “All the arrangements are being taken care of by my mother. She is very knowledge-able about all things weddings, she understands what I want and is the best Wedding Planner.”
