Repurposing Samantha’s Wedding Gown

Handmade, intricately detailed couture designs are incredibly special. What can be challenging is giving them a new lease on life, so you wear them often and along different journeys. Samantha Ruth Prabhu turned muse for Kresha Bajaj’s La Soiree.

The tulle of the wedding gown was first repurposed by dyeing it nude and black. Then the nude tulle was created into a corset using resham thread and new beads. The boning was retained from the previous outfit. The rest of the tulle—in black—was used to form a structural skirt.

The center stone on each flower was changed from clear to black. The entire outfit was repurposed with very little wastage. This can encourage people to bring back their couture pieces so that they can be reimagined and redesigned to work into current life.

Samantha’s Sustainable Fashion Choices

Samantha, who won a sustainability award, also shared details about her gown, writing, “We cannot ignore sustainability anymore. We’re past that stage when it was a choice. It’s now a necessity for the longevity of our planet that we call home. The dress I am wearing today is a beloved gown that has been repurposed for this occasion by the most talented Kresha Bajaj. While that might sound insignificant… entitled even… to many… I assure you that repurposing my old clothes is only one of many steps I am consciously taking to alter my habits and make my lifestyle more sustainable. And every little gesture, every little decisive action, is important. It all adds up. I urge myself and all of you that have goodwill for me in your hearts to make those little efforts. Thank you.”

Kresha Bajaj’s Artistry

Kresha Bajaj shared a collab post with Samantha on Instagram showcasing the entire process of creating the outfit and captioned, “We are very excited to see this thought come to life! The entire outfit has been repurposed with very little wastage. And that was the thought behind starting La Soirée – to give couture a new lease on life. We loved working with Samantha on this piece, and she brought her own sensibility and style to the process. Being part of her journey at every step has been a privilege.” This transformation serves as a powerful symbol of sustainability in fashion.
