Saisha shared how she was bullied for being different, writing, “Irrespective of your origin, there will always be something that reminds you of your childhood. For me, it takes me back to the kind of loneliness that aches, to pressures that pushed me into solitude and the chaos of confusion that grew every moment. All through school and college, while the boys outside tormented me because I was different, the internal pain was far worse. I felt suffocated living a reality that I knew wasn’t mine, yet one that I had to stage everyday because of societal expectations and norms.”
The designer rose to fame when she designed outfits for Madhur Bhandarkar’s movie Fashion (2008), and from that point on her designs turned into a moment hit and she was dressing A-listers for red carpet, award shows, magazine covers and she even designed outfits for movies, the most recent one was for Kiara Advani for the song Burj Khalifa from the movie Laxxmi.
