Sayana Sunil stole the hearts of Kerala's movie-goers with her role of 'Apsara,' or the campus queen in Arungeorge K David's 'Ladoo.' With her zealous eyes, messy hair and catchy Thrissur-accent, Sayana endeared herself to Malayali audience with her debut role.
Though her costumes in striking color combinations and flashy designs in the movie were widely noticed, lesser known fact is that Sayana is an award-winning fashion designer in real life.
Imagines heavy and wears light
This Thrissur lass loves to design heavy floral gowns, often embellished with real flowers. Her collection of one-time-wear horti-couture designs have left Kerala's fashion coterie in sheer surprise. While designing all of these hefty costumes, Sayana is often seen flaunting an over-sized t-shirt, a track suit and a pair of sneakers.
She is a great fan of nose-pins. “I have a huge collection of nose-pins. A modish nose-pin paired with a subtle, single-stroked lip-color gives your face a lift that no patches of make-up can offer,” she says.
Love for footwear
Sayana says that feet are the most noticed part of a person's appearance. She wears wedged shoes, high-healed pumps and sling-back sandals. “I am not a very tall person. So I prefer to look tall to suit my lean physique. That's the reason why I prefer heels to flats,” she says.
“Gone are the days when you wear canvas shoes and sneakers only with denim-t shirt combination. I love matching them with bright kurtis and ankle-length leggings, western dresses and even salwars,” she said.
Passionate street shopper and a picky customer
Where does Sayana get her favorite costumes, jewelry and accessories from? 'The streets,' answers Sayana, who is a passionate street shopper. She spares any amount of time looking for jewelry and embellishments for her costumes on the streets.
