Interview With Wedding Dress Designer- Sareh Nouri

March 29, 2013

A few weeks ago I was able to sit down and chat with the incredibly talented designer, Sareh Nouri. When I first saw her dresses I knew I had to meet the master mind behind such talent. Using her Persian roots she has created some of the most unique wedding dresses and her Spring 2013 line is to. die.for.  Take a sneak-peek below! Shall we get started?

1. Were you born in Iran? Where did you spend your childhood? When did you move to the United States?   Did you design in Iran as well? 

I was born in Tehran, Iran. I spent my early childhood in Tehran and moved to the United States at the age of 9. Most kids wanted to be a doctor, nurse, or a teacher but I always wanted to be an artist at a young age. I got my early inspiration in art from a famous Iranian painter Abbas Katouzian who was my teacher and mentor.


2. What is the inspiration behind your 2013 collection?

The Spring 2013 collection is inspired by Vintage Fairytale with a touch of sparkle! I created amazing ball gowns that incorporate romantic and ethereal skirts with embellished bodices. The gowns are embellished with delicate flow of fabrics such as tulle, luscious silk organza and French lace. The combination of color, lace, and texture make the dresses unique and romantic.

 3. Being a native of Iran, how much do your Persian roots influence your designing?

My Persian roots have a great influence on my designs.  I travel to Iran frequently and continuously get inspiration from the Persian patterns. Working previously as an artist with Persian calligraphy also gives me great motivation to come up with unique patterns for my sashes and gowns. The elaborate beading on my sashes is a great example.

4. You formed your bridal company from the frustration of not finding the perfect dress for your own wedding back in 2009, are you surprised by the tremendous growth of Sareh Nouri Designs?

I really worked very hard to get to where I am today but the results really paid off so far and have been a great motivation to continue. The growth of my designs in general was amazing and I hope that it will continue in the years coming!


 5. What piece of advice would you give to brides who are trying to find “THE DRESS?”

The best piece of advice I can give a frustrated bride is to be patient.  A wedding gown is an emotional purchase and can take some time to find.  The second piece of advice I would give is to do your research, but stay open-minded.  We must remember that just because the gowns look gorgeous in a magazine doesn’t mean that we will fall head over heels in love when we try one on. Pick the styles you like (sleeves or no sleeves, full or slim-fitting, trumpet), but it could change once you try them on! In the end you will benefit by finding “the one”.
