Satish Sikha Batch of 1994 – JD Institute of Fashion Technology
Satish Sikha was born to spin the colour wheel and pick at random. But in his randomness lies method. Contradictory colours become soothing, gulping the flow of the drape. His mad play with colours is not just limited to the family of woven. His unconventional designs have become all the more edgy with embellishments of real precious stones like rubies, emeralds and diamonds. So much so that it has become his signature style. Trained in mathematics, he soon calculated that a brighter future lay for him in dressing up people. After joining JD Institute of Fashion Technology, he just became surer. No wonder he was dressing up the Miss Universe contestants in 1994 and 1995.
And soon fussy Bollywood celebrities started trusting him to dazzle them at staid social dos. An entrepreneur that he is, he defied convention and promoted student designers in the most eye-ball seeking ways. He did everything that was not expected in those years. Right from using pythons to creating artificial rains. Another creation of his that has become a piece of art is the range of gowns for brides. Co-designed with his partner Tsufa Bijelic, whom he met at the International Academy of Design, these gowns are not for the coy and shy breed. Rather it’s for brides who are out there, in your face, commanding all your attention. And appreciation. For a bride who can’t help but steal the show
