Adding a feather to her cap, actress Sagarika Ghatge became a fashion designer with the launch of her own brand.
The 35-year-old revealed that the brand, called ‘Akutee’, was inspired by the women in her family. She shared a series of posts on Instagram to talk about her inspiration.
In one of the articles she wrote: “Through the hazy haze of my childhood memories, I distinctly remember being surrounded by such beauty and grace. What seemed like a perfectly normal childhood was in fact, I now realize a lesson in grace and poise. “
Ghatge then explained how she had “naturally” imbued herself with the traditions, which are reflected in her designs, of the women of the family. “A girl’s role model is often the women of her family and I have subconsciously absorbed a lot of customs, traditions and folklore very naturally. Looking at their timeless elegance, I couldn’t wait to grow up to be as beautiful and poised as they are, ”she said.
Fashion doesn’t necessarily mean extravagant outfits, and it was from the ladies of the family that Sagarika first learned that there is elegance in simplicity. “… I saw them dressing in simple kotas, chanderis and chiffon sarees, accessorized with minimalist jewelry and beautifully matched glass bracelets,” said the Chak De! India actor added.
Speaking about her designs, Sagarika revealed that she organized her first collection with her mother. “My first collection is very special to me because I organized it with my mom, who was my inspiration for Akutee,” she wrote.
