Aashumi Mehta – AZA Fashions
Discover her transformation with WeddingSutra on Location at AZA Fashions, Bandra
WeddingSutra on Location went to AZA Fashions, Bandra. This multi-designer retail brand is renowned for its wide range of couture, diffusion and prêt collections for brides-to-be with an emphasis on ‘occasion-wear’.
We started with a Style Consultation followed by a Makeover and captured the transformation with a professional Photo Shoot. Each participant also had the opportunity to interact with some of the best names in Bridal and Wedding services.
In the last of this three-part series, bride-to-be Aashumi Mehta writes about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location at AZA Fashions, Bandra.
“I wasn’t even engaged when I found out about WeddingSutra on Location from a friend. She was all smiles and praises when she spoke about her experience. When I saw her photos, I was spellbound! I knew I just had to experience this too. So as soon as I got engaged, I reached out to WeddingSutra and was delighted to learn I was shortlisted for their upcoming On Location at AZA, Bandra.
My experience began with warm greetings from Team WeddingSutra. Then as I started looking through the curated bridal creations I came across a Gaurav Gupta gown in burgundy. The silhouette, style, embellishments all looked really beautiful and I thought I’d try it on. When I did, the entire team kept telling me it looked like it had been made especially for me! I thought I looked extremely attractive and glamorous in it too! There was also the choice of a gorgeous Sabyasachi creation but I have to admit I’d already fallen in love with this, the perfect gown. I couldn’t picture myself wearing anything else.
Then it was time to get glammed up by makeup whiz Recinda Martis and hairstylist Ronella. They’re both so friendly. I’m not very patient and like to be on the move constantly so sitting in one place for a long time would have been a nightmare if it wasn’t for them keeping me occupied by talking to me. It seemed like time flew by and suddenly, they were done and I was thrilled to see the end result! I’m actually planning to go with the same hairstyle for one of the functions at my wedding.
Once ready, it was time to proceed to the photo-shoot with Hardik from Picture Perfect India. I’m not that much of a poser and pretty camera conscious but Hardik made the process so much fun. I was totally at ease and honestly, I felt like a supermodel.
All in all, it was truly a one of a kind experience. Thank you and kudos to you WeddingSutra!”
Keeping in mind Aashumi’s glamorous Gaurav Gupta cocktail gown, Makeup Artist Recinda Martis decided to give her a uber-glam evening look. Recinda began with applying the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation in Natural Flare shade all over her face and then set it with the hydrating formula of Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact in Beige Honey. For a smokey look, Recinda used the darkest shade of the newly launched Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold all over her eyelids and used the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate for a smudged finish. She then brushed on a few coats of Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara to her lashes. Recinda used the Lakmé Absolute Sunkissed Bronzer on the apples of her cheeks for a chiseled look. For the lips, Recinda used the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi Definition Matte Lipstick in Burgundy Affair shade for a bold bridal pout. Finally, her curly hair was prepped and left open for maximum drama.
