Sanyukta Shrestha – Eco Goddess Haute Couture collection

I was delighted when Eco bridal designer Sanyukta Shrestha asked me to photograph her 2016 Haute Couture Collection. Her dreamy wedding dresses are infused with the tranquility of an ethereal goddess for wedding perfection.

Sanyukta is one of the kindest, most genuine people you will ever meet. She is selflessly donating 10% of all 2016 collection sales to help the earthquake victims in Nepal, where each dress is preciously handmade. Thankfully the production team survived this tragic event, but help is still very much needed.

Sanyukta’s decision to use these natural/eco fibres in her collection underlines her commitment to environment and development focusing on ‘Beauty with a conscience’. Through blending sustainability with her ethical believes, Sanyukta also intends to create opportunities for village women in Nepal, by merging and turning their traditional skills into delicate fabrics and exquisite designs.

Sanyukta adds “The women of the villages in Nepal have been hand weaving fabric for centuries. The reality is, however, that this is a small cottage industry and hand looming is actually on the verge of extinction. I feel incredibly privileged as a designer, to be able to put their inspirational skills to good use in my modern bridal designs. I feel it is my time to express my sincere appreciation of these women by helping them to overcome this disaster and continue to revive their industry further as my Bridal collections evolve”.
