Aisha: A Fashion Primer

August 6, 2010

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!)

Key Looks

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

Statement accessories

Aisha: “The Lady Dior is Aisha’s go-to bag, it goes with everything!” says Pernia.

Arjun: Vintage YSL belt, Cartier watch, tie clips

Colours

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

Last word

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!
