Photo Essay- Take a Bow

There is something endearing about that moment, when the designer is taking a bow at the end of his/her show. It’s their moment of glory after spending months & days into making a collection. My photo essay focuses on how differently Indian designers celebrates the tradition of taking a bow which also tells a bit about their personality, some do it cheerfully, some do it along with bollywood stars & some just wave & go.

Enjoy this photo essay which I recently shot at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 16 & mention your views & thoughts in the comment section below.
