Siwangi Pradhan’s designs are the epitome of elegance and grace. TGIF follows the creator of ‘Si’ and gets a glimpse of her different styles for different occasions
It’s interesting to be known as a fashion designer. Designers are an integral part of the industry and having been a part of the modelling world, it has given me insights into what makes a good designer. I urge to bring something new to fashion in Nepal. The transition brought a lot of opportunities and threw a lot of challenges.
The way an individual expresses his/her personality and style.
Who is ‘Si’ for?
I wanted my label to be a reflection of my personality and represent women in a strong way. My aim is to make women feel confident and look beautiful in my creations.
How was your experience at TGIF Nepal Fashion Week 2016 as a designer?
There is no better platform than TGIF Nepal Fashion Week to showcase designs. I got instant recognition and was able to make my mark in the fashion industry.
I am overwhelmed with the appreciation and response I received for my collection ‘Red Carpet’. The response was overwhelming and I was not expecting it. I think I am on the right path and there is a lot to do.
What exciting things are in store for you in 2016?
The year 2016 is going to be the biggest year in my life. I plan to embark on a new journey and take my career to new heights.
This is the look to go for if you’re out for fun with your friends. A pair of shades is a must to add a touch of coolness to your look.
If you are wondering what to wear for work, then the answer is — something simple and classy. You can always add some fun to your outfit with high heels and accessories.
Jumpsuits best define my style. I think they make me look fabulous especially the striped ones. They are elegant and chic.
The good old 70’s fashion is back! No matter what fabric you choose, a pair of flared pants guarantees the glam factor. Tuck in a white ruffled blouse and put on high heeled pumps to complete the look.
The polished look is good for day events as well as for nightouts. Accessorise a simple outfit with a choker for the oomph factor.
