Shail K is the most recent and upcoming special occasion dress designer. With their new line launching this season, we instantly knew it was necessary for DressEmpire.com to have the first exclusive interview with Shail K. They are known for their short, fun and flirty sequin dresses which we love for cocktail parties, homecoming, and New Years.
1. What inspires your designs?
I see a bold use of colors and jewel tones as an inspiration to create smashing glamorous dresses. I always like my dresses to be very feminine even with the use of bold colors to play with and intricate beading on every piece. I think there is a special element to every piece of clothing when it is handmade. Eighty percent of my dresses are handmade, one piece at a time. A lot of artistic work and finesse goes into creating every piece. They are made with pure silk. All of this is very inspirational for me.
2. What are some of your favorite pieces from your collection this season?
Although I like all my designs, my top favorites are KK3162 and KK3133L. A few styles that are almost my favorite are the KK3815 and KK3163, which are featured below.
3. What message through your designs do you want to get across?
I want every woman to look and feel beautiful no matter what size she is. I pay special attention to the way my dresses taper around a woman’s body to make her look and feel¬†her best.¬†¬†Every woman should feel like a celebrity when she wears any of¬†Shail K’s styles.
4. If you could describe Shail K. in three words, what would they be?
Contemporary, rockstar, and very feminine.
