Sonam is a chameleon : Pernia Qureshi, Actress and fashion designer
Updated on: 11 Jun 2016
Sonam Kapoor is the showstopper for designer Pernia Qureshi tonight
Style maven Pernia Qureshi is extremely observant and indulges in people-watching all the time. She soaks in everything — from movies to art to people —and this vast wealth of inspiration finds its way in her creations. "I am a sensitive person and have my ears and eyes always open. Besides, I'm a huge movie buff and love dance."
Not surprising as her new line captures the old world regalia of actress Vyjayanthimala so ably essayed in the cult dance-inspired film Amrapali. Qureshi's friend Sonam Kapoor will be walking the ramp for her. Over to Miss Qureshi...
Tell us about Sonam Kapoor's outfit.
It's very ethereal, goddess-like but in a modern way and at the same time quite wearable. Sonam is a chameleon and can carry off just any style under the sun. She is capable of doing full justice to any style of clothing. My line oozes elegance and it completely befits Sonam's personality. The collection is about grace and grace is something which Sonam has in abundance. At the same time, it's a young and fun collection. I have been a huge fan of Vyjayanthimala in the epic film Amrapali and the line is a modern version of that aesthetic.
You've worked with Sonam in Aisha and she's walking for you after a long time. How do you two share your creative canvas?
