- Designer meets her Muse
Nida Mahmood, has designed an outfit for pop icon Lady Gaga, who loved Nida' short 'Jadugaar' dress made with 1,000 LED lights. (the one from Nida's WIFW SS-12 collection titled The Great Indian Bohemian Tamasha.)
The Digital print carefully designed incorporating the essence of Indian Street Theatre. Very Indian - Colours - a mix of orange, red, green and blue. I call it 'Jadugaar Dress for Magical Gaga'," - Nida Mahmood
Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment had placed the order for the dress for Lady Gaga.
"Shah Rukh's khan Red Chillies entertainment approached Nida for making the garment. It is a surreal feeling to have designed for an international superstar! The icing on the cake was that she absolutely loved the concept," said Nida, who feels that "nobody can match the charm and aura with which Gaga carries herself and this is what makes her a perfect muse for my theme."
"The concept evolved from Theatre and she (Gaga) completely epitomizes the theme. I matched the garment with headgear inspired by the mukuts from the Ramlila.
"Gaga loved the Indianness of the concept and the way it blended with a global feel. It was indeed a treat designing for someone so larger than life as Gaga," she added.
*The multicolored dress on Tinu, with yellow headgear, is what Gaga loved!!
