Jaya Misra wishes to do more global work

Kolkata: With rave reviews for her costume designing work in Swen at this year`s Cannes Film Festival, Designer Jaya Misra now wishes to do more international projects in sync with her global fashion campaign. "The response to Swen was very positive. The viewers and the critics alike appreciated the whole work…the film and the designing part," the celebrated designer told PTI after the launch of her `Bridal Collection` here.

English version Swen, casting Reeth Majumder and Johny Baweja, won the best movie award in this Mexico Film Festival, earlier held this year. Talking about another ambitious film project of hers, Misra said she was very gung-ho about another upcoming multi-crore Telugu movie, which featured southern icon Balakrishna, which is slated to be released by early 2013.

Talking about the work, she said "I had designed 50 exclusive garments for Balakrishna in three different shades customised on the Indo-Western pattern and I hope it gelled with the theme." Asked which Bollywood stars she would like most to dress up, Mishra said "Hrithik Roshan…. (since) he has a wonderful fashion sense and presence…and the very elegant Katrina (Kaif)….but why!…I would rather love to dress up many other actors."

Mishra, who has already designed for Bollywood celebrities like Mugdha Godse, Tulip Joshi, Kashmira Shah, Rakshanda Khan, Archana Puran Singh and Bengali stars like Dev, Jeet, Rituparna Sengupta and Shrabonti, "loves to blend east and west in a unique Bohemian manner coupled with subtle sensitivity."

"I am working on garments drawing on Elizabethan period for which my frequent visits abroad during fashion shows in Europe and trips to museaums and art galleries defnitely helped. But again I would base it on Indian elements, as I always seek to link east and west,", the 17th Lions Gold Winner for the Best Upcoming Designer, said.

Pointing out she would love to wear Jaya`s bright coloured `lehenga` on the `special day` of her life, popular city model Satarupa Pyne, who had worked with Tarun Tahiliani and Sabyasachi Mukherjee, said "after Swen, my dream is to be part of her next international project be it in films or ramp at places like London or Milan." "And if it is a film with a period look, wow…that`s what I had dreamt about…international, or Bollywood or some qualityb good project in bengal," Satarupa said.
