Wedding Gowns are very unique attire and choosing a wedding gown is probably one of the biggest decisions that a bride-to-be makes as her big day approaches.
Wedding gown designer Rachel J Amirtharaj is a devout and believes that it is important to do good deeds every day so that the world is a better place to live. Goodness at her core this versatile and talented designer is adding new feathers to her already glittering hat with every passing day. Rachel with her talent and humbleness wants to change the society and wants to be successful in her business too.
Rachel, a voice of women empowerment, had to fight for her right in her personal life. Narrating her pain and agony, she says, “As a dark complexion girl child born in an orthodox Indian family, I had been in a consistent struggle against the chauvinistic and patriarchal forces of the society. But such persisting discrimination and educational inequality never let me down and thereby motivated me to explore myself and achieve my dreams. Sooner than later I began to realize a stronger human being inside me. Every time an act of discrimination was inflicted upon me by my own people be it financial, social or mental. I, therefore, realized the monetary importance of an early age and had imbibed it in my perception that if a woman wants to live a life with dignity and respect, the basic necessity would be financial empowerment.”
Though she has been designing for the biggest celebrities and Miss India too but has been impressed by the humble qualities of the celebrities. Rachel J Amirtharaj says that “ At the sets of the movie Parmanu I met John Abraham at Tolstoy Marg. I took my son to the spot dude in break John made my son sit on his lap and asked what you want to be in life. My son told him that I want him to be an IPS officer but he wants to be a footballer. To Beije John replied that he can become whatever he wants to be but uniform gives a sense of pride and he is able to help too many needy if he becomes an IPS officer. I can’t forget how extremely affectionate and positive he was to my son”.
Rachel J Amirtharaj talks about the most memorable lesson she learned in the industry-” I was working along with the internationally famous designer Ror Rodriguez Who has designed costumes for blockbusters like daredevil and Supergirl. We styled superstar Rajnikant and Amy Jackson’s costumes for Robot 2.0. The shooting was going on at Thyagarajan Sports Stadium, Delhi so from the exit gate of the stadium to the place where the vanity van was waiting for the superstar was almost 250 to 300 meters. And both sides of his way he was surrounded by few hundreds of his fans trying to reach him. And the way he folded had his hands saying Vanakkam and Bowing his head to his fans standing both sides all the way to his van was such a spectacular vision to behold. It was a lesson in humility that shows us that no matter how big we may get we will always be a tiny blip in the universe.”
Rachel’s philanthropic character sets an example. She has a mission to create awareness by educating slum women about menstrual hygiene. She is working and counseling with the juveniles, helping them with their rehabilitation. She has been a regular participant in the Pride parade.
