Aisha: A Fashion Primer
You’ve heard from Aisha’s costume designer Kunal Rawal on how he worked on the guys’ looks. To make it easier for all fashion and film lovers, here’s a mini-guide on Aisha’s fashion, so when you watch the movie, you don’t miss out on the fashion!
We’ve prepared this mini-guide with a little help from both of Aisha’s costume designers—Pernia Qureshi and Kunal Rawal. (Thanks!)
Sonam Kapoor as Aisha: Fun, feminine, high fashion
Abhay Deol as Arjun: Understated, bespoke, corporate
Amrita Puri as Shefali: Sweet behenji (later goes mod)
Ira Dubey as Pinky: Quirky
Lisa Haydon as Aarti: Tailored, glamourous
Arunoday Singh as Dhruv: Outdoorsy, casual
Clothes: Who’s wearing what?
Aisha: Designer clothes—Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Lacroix… the works! “I shopped everywhere in New York city,” says Pernia. “Thrift stores, vintage stores, department stores, the street…” (Speaking Chic has learnt that Frock was one of the stores)
Shefali: Anamika Khanna churidar-kurtas
Arjun: Bespoke Kunal Rawal suits
Aisha: “The Lady Dior is Aisha’s go-to bag, it goes with everything!” says Pernia.
Arjun: Vintage YSL belt, Cartier watch, tie clips
Sonam: Pastels, whites, some pop colours
Abhay: Lots of colour blocking (such as two-tone ties); off colours like powder and sky blue, ice blue, tones of maroons and tobacco browns
What to steal from Aisha
Pernia: “Everything is wearable. That was something I kept in mind while styling.”
Kunal: “Learn to block your colours well, and adopt an understated style.”
Costume designer favourites
Pernia’s favourite: Pink Christian Lacroix vintage top and skirt
Kunal’s favourites: Abhay’s metallic blazer in denim in the party scene; Arunoday’s sherwani in Gal meethi, Cyrus’s black Dior leather jacket with white t-shirt
Watch out for
Pernia says: The first wedding sequence, salsa song and Sonam’s purple climax dress
Kunal says: Salsa song, detailing on Abhay’s suits
You will spot both Pernia and Kunal in the film, and Kunal’s roasting marshmallows! “To my defence, everyone was styled in that shot except me!” Kunal exclaims.
Enjoy the movie and tell us what you think of the fashion in the film!
