Behind The Scenes Exclusive
Interview With Sareh Nouri
After searching in vain for “The One”, Sareh decided to design her own wedding dress. Not only did she wear her dream gown, but Sareh also found herself on the path to realising her dream of becoming one of the top bridal wear designers…
I come from an art background and there are elements of art that are similar in designing dresses. I was always inspired by art. I loved to paint at an early age and took lessons from a prominent painter in Iran. I never got tired or bored from anything that was artistic and I always went back to it. During my college years I geared towards graphic design since it was digital and artistic and got my degree.
Sareh tells us how destiny pulled her from her artistic background into the direction of the bridal industry.
In 2009 when I was looking for my own wedding dress I had a hard time finding the dress I was looking for. I decided to design my own wedding dress!
After my wedding I moved to the New York Metro area. I fell in love with the bridal industry and started working for a high-end bridal salon. Working at the salon was like fashion school for me. I learned the fabrics, cuts, and what the brides were looking for. I met couture dressmakers who also motivated me and it all came together.
Sareh reveals that her key source of inspiration lies in her brides finding ‘The One’.
The highlight of my design career happens every time a bride to be is wearing a Sareh Nouri gown and says, “this is it”. It’s an incredible feeling that inspires me to continue.
The Sareh Nouri Signature Style
Inspired by the qualities that she herself sought in her own wedding gown, Sareh describes the signature style of a Sareh Nouri wedding gown.
The Sareh Nouri signature style is classic, elegant, one-of-a-kind, romantic and timeless.
The Creative Process
From conception to production, Sareh lets us in on the behind-the-scenes creative process of designing one of her signature gowns.
Designing a gown takes time and patience . You will be surprised how detailed designing a gown is, from picking out the fabric, doing the sketch, and working with the sample makers. Even if you have a perfect vision of what you want it could all change in the process.
Bridal Wear Trends for 2014
Elements of the upcoming 2014 bridal season’s trends are found throughout the Sareh Nouri Fall 2014 Bridal Collection.
The current trends for my collection include lace, illusion necklines, dresses with sleeves and a touch of sparkle!
Advice for Selecting the Perfect Wedding Gown
Sareh shares her pearls of wisdom for brides searching for The One – their perfect wedding dress.
- A wedding gown is an emotional purchase. I always tell brides to do their research, but to stay open-minded. We must remember that just because the gowns look gorgeous in a magazine doesn’t mean that we will fall head over heels in love when we try one on.
- Pick the styles you like (sleeves or no sleeves, full or slim-fitting, trumpet), but it could change once you try them on!
- And be honest with your consultant regarding budget and in the end you will benefit by finding “the one”.
