Sameera Reddy Rocks Her 8-Year-Old Wedding Saree, Sets Sustainability Goals

Sustainability and upcycling have become an integral part of the fashion universe today. With many brands taking a step towards better, greener land, buyers have become mindful of their purchases as well. And following a similar mantra are celebrities who are often spotted championing sustainability through their closet. An apt example of this is a new post on Instagram by actress Sameera Reddy. Sameera recently dropped a couple of images and talked about how she repurposed her eight-year-old wedding saree. Sharing an image from her wedding day, Sameera re-styled designer Neeta Lulla’s wedding wear for a recent event and we absolutely loved it. Featuring stunning banarsi silk, and gold borders, Sameera wrote on her Instagram handle, “I wore my wedding saree after 8 years, and it felt so amazing.”

Re-purposing her wedding saree that she wore with a statement gold belt, red palla and heavy gold jewellery, she brought a contemporary charm to the heirloom piece and teamed the drape with a brocade sleeveless blouse and sealed the look with her mother’s Laxmi chain, and her grandmother’s earrings for a recent event. How lovely!

While bridal outfits have always been a part of a safe space in the most treasured section of a woman’s wardrobe, the idea of a wedding lehenga today takes a distinct approach. Marinating the idea of future use, brides including actress Dia Mirza have sported designs, that not just remain a piece of memory from the happy day but can be put to use again. We really hope to see more of such brides setting a new dialogue in the shaadi wear category.
