In a chat with us, the young and very vivacious Sakshi Jerath talks about what’s trending in décor, how meticulous detailing and a strong foundation can take a budding designer places and more! Read on...
Sakshi Jerath stated, "Today less is definitely more. Over the top is not being appreciated. Sometimes as décor professionals we have to make certain clients understand the limit to which décor should be extravagant/glamourous."
According to Jerath, attention to detailing should be the prime focus. When each design is particularly designed, sketched, coloured and then transformed to reality, it shows.
Moreover she feels that if the overall design is based on meticulous detailing even on small decor items, the right amount of grandeur automatically gets infused in the event.
She adds,"Minimalistic but detailed decor can make a huge difference as opposed to going over the top while decking up a venue with loud props and accessories in an attempt to add grandeur."
Speaking of trends, she explains, "Today designers are looking more at pastel colour palettes. I also like pastel shades but sometimes, I feel an amount of oomph is necessary to jazz up the decor. International trends are also snaking their way into the Indian design market. But I feel a mélange of our traditional designs with just a hint of internationalism works wonders for weddings. Of course, when working for a non-Indian client, one has to be cautious while incorporating traditional elements (although in my experience, they love seeing an Indian touch to their decor)."
Interestingly she mentions, "Having worked with The Wedding Design Company headed by Vandana Mohan, I can certainly say that one can learn a lot from an experienced and good leader, which I was lucky to have. Exposure while working with an established enterprise can add a great deal to your experience. Having said that, making your individual name in the business of wedding décor is pretty much your own hard work and the attention you put in detailing your designs."
