Sneak Peek-Rajasthan Heritage Week

Rajasthan Heritage Week is back with another spectacular season. It’s a great initiative by Khadi board along with Government of Rajasthan in association with Prasad Bidapa Associates. This edition brings some of the best designers & weavers together on one platform to celebrate the luxury of handloom masterpieces of Rajasthan. Few weeks back the campaign was shot at various heritage places of pink city, Jaipur. So here are some exclusive behind the scene pictures which I shot while the campaign was being photographed by ace photographer Haider Khan.

The event will be held from 7-10 December at Diggi Palace, Jaipur. Also do not forget to check out the entire schedule for the fashion week at the end of this post below.

Backstage-IISW-Highlights

The final day of India International Style Week season 2 was a complete fashion extravaganza. From veteran to upcoming designers the show had it all. Top models like Carol Gracias & Lakshmi Rana graced the runway with Bollywood actress Mugdha Godse as showstoppers. The show also saw vivid range of color palette in the collections, from Chirag Nainani‘s indigo to Gazal Mishra‘s pastels to Niharika Pandey‘s quirky take on vibrant tones. The show ended with a thanking note by show director Abhimanyu Singh Tomar with event director Akhilesh Agarwal & promised for another fashion carnival in upcoming month of this year.

Here are some of exclusive backstage pictures shot by me at the final day of the fashion week to give you all a closer look at the collections. Also have a look at the runway images shot officially by photographer Jiten Agarwal here on his page JPIC.in.

Curtain Raiser-IISW Season 2

After the first successful season , it’s time for the second season of India International Style Week . Last night was full of classic glamour & high fashion drama. The curtain raiser for IISW displayed the latest hair & make-up trends which will also be the look for runway presentation on 12th & 13th August. Show director Abhimanyu Singh Tomar explained the beauty trends are inspired by vintage fashion which includes french bouffants & edgy hairdos. Jaipur based salon Sizzlin Scizzors stylized these looks especially for the fashion week. The event is organised by Ekang events. Ensembles by Vibha Parwani, Geet Vaishakh & Antara Goswami were showcased for the opening scene of the act. Along with them on the upcoming days designer Felix Bendish, Gazal Mishra, Jaya Mishra, Chirag Nainani, Niharika Pandey & Anshu Raja Sen will be displaying their collections. All I can say is the fashion mayhem is about to begin & am super excited to be part of IISW as the official blogger.

Style Diaries-Madame Hall

Lisa Hall is the name behind the bespoke quirky label ‘Madame Hall’ whose collection was showcased this year at Lakme Fashion Week. It was her personal instagram account which inspired me to do this photo story. I don’t really adhere the conventional idea of fashion where it changes with seasons as I feel it should be more about self-expression & how you feel rather than what people think. Lisa’s idea of fashion & style is also kind of similar as she’s not into following regular trends but always curious to create what she feels like.  Her choice of colors, patterns, prints & materials is truly one of a kind just like her personal story. Lisa is from Sydney, Australia & now she is living in Bhuj from past 5 years as she fell in love with the textiles & embroideries of Kutch. Unlike other western designers who travel to India in search of inspiration & fabrics, Lisa is here to stay.

For this photo story I wanted to shoot in the streets of Bhuj using the old broken doors & rust like backdrops of Aina Mahal which is very close to Lisa’s design studio made a perfect backdrop for shooting her colorful bohemian clothes. Lisa curated & styled each look for this story. She has fabulous eye for details & penchant for traditional gujarati jewels which beautifully blends with her designs. Lisa always happily poses wearing her designs & her instagram account is full of that, visual treat for all boho lovers.

Style Diaries: Dolly, Charuta & Komal

Fashion blogging is more than posting a pretty picture on instagram. We are living in the age where selfie cameras are elevating narcissistic tendencies to a whole new level. To be relevant it is very important to have an opinion & you need a voice. What irritates me the most is how boring the trends are getting on the runways & most importantly on streets (as street fashion is not meant to be boring & predictable atleast). The designers  seems to be obsessed with boxy silhouettes & are more inclined towards everything very clean & chic. Where is the originality?  Why sudden love for everything anti-fit or handlooms? Why everybody is trying to fit-in instead of standing out? I think they all are working on similar mood boards. Thankfully when Elle India recently posted an article I was finally relieved that someone reputed atleast pointed it out.

Fortunately three Delhi fashionistas are breaking the style norms without following any particular fashion trend & keeping the street fashion alive with their quirky & unpredictable personal style which they have developed in years. Also I had a great chance to interact with these 3 style bloggers who were kind enough to take some time & answer all my fashion curiosities which I always wanted to ask & to know more about their style inspirations.

Dolly Singh

Dolly Singh is a style chameleon. She keeps on re-inventing her style, rising from her india modern avatar of kitschy fashion to more provocative & dramatic version of high-street it girl.

Blog name- Spill the sass

Instagram @spill_the_sass

Dolly Singh Blogger

Abhimanyu (AB): Tell me about your blogging journey?
Dolly Singh (DS): I was always interested in clothes and shoes as far as I can remember. When I first started reading blogs I came across the dearth of relatable bloggers, bloggers who not only talked about fashion but also my budget. I also wanted to talk about how you don’t really have to have a huge wardrobe, you CAN repeat clothes, just know how to do it right. This is why I started my own thing about 2 years back.
AB: Trend you hate the most?
DS: Hi-low hem dresses. Never wore them, never will.

IMG_4486

AB: Recently Indian bloggers were featured on a reputed fashion publication’s magazine cover, your take on that?
DS: I loved it. The fact that the community is growing so strong and in some way the work done is being appreciated always counts. I do feel strongly, however, that we must stand our ground and talk about what the readers want, what we want, instead of what the big corporations are trying to make us do.
AB: Any dreams to be on a magazine cover someday? If yes which magazine?
DS: Well, who doesn’t right? Any magazine would do, as long as it’s the cover haha. If I had to choose, my favorites would be Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.

Dolly Singh Blogger in caution dress

AB: Favorite TV series?
DS: At the moment, I can’t wait for the second season of Stranger Things.
AB: Celebrity you would like to style someday?
DS: I would love to style Rihanna, not because she needs it but because it will be a dream come true.

IMG_6241

AB: Who would you choose as ideal fashion week front row partner?
DS: That would be one of my favourite youtuber, Grace Helbig. She gives hilarious fashion reviews.
AB: Favorite Pop icon?
DS: Ed Sheeran, currently.

IMG_4512

AB: Blogs you look upto?
DS: Man Repeller, of course!
AB: Things one should take care during Blog photoshoots?
DS: The makeup, it can make it or break it.

Komal Pandey

Komal Pandey is a fashion blogger at The College Couture. She is a popular face of Popxo youtube channel & has become a quintessential face of pretty much everything in everyday life of a young girl. Her personal style is quite visible on her blog & yes she wears it all in real life (on the streets ) too!

Blog- The College Couture

Instagram- @thecollegecouture

IMG_0841

AB: -Story behind the name The College Couture?
Komal Pandey (KP): My blog was the result of a really bad break up. Same old story, how you get out of a bad relationship and you wanna do something rebellious…. different? So that was it. I stared my blog The College Couture.

AB: Why “The College Couture” ?

KP: Because all of this happened in College. Sounds really random, but yeah.

IMG_0853

AB: Blogs you look upto?

KP: I love a lot of blogs and follow them but I don’t look upto any. I look upto people on the streets and it’s the real fashion on real people that motivates me.

AB: What inspires you in terms of fashion & style?
KP: Same answer, people on the streets.

AB: Kate Moss or Gigi Hadid?
KP: Gigi Hadid.

AB: Worst fashion era ?
KP: 2000’s.

AB: Favorite shopping destination in India?

KP: Sarojini, New Delhi

Komal Pandey, kitschy quirky

AB: Who would you choose as ideal fashion week front row partner?
KP: My boyfriend. He is an Engineer. It would be nice to have someone from a different spectrum watch it with me. Fascinating, no?

Komal Pandey

AB: Favorite movie you love watching just for style & fashion?
KP: All bollywood movies from the 90’s. Especially Karishma Kapoor‘s. I think she wore the dopest outfits in the 90’s!

AB: Favorite fashion week moment in India?
KP: Obviously meeting you and seeing a new colourful outfit EVERYDAY. I am being VERY honest, right now.

Charuta Arvind Yadav

Charuta’s sartorial choices told girls it is okay to be whimsical, kooky & quirky about fashion. She also runs a DIY label known as Adagio . Her mother helps & supports her immensely to curate each of her creative looks.

Blog- Modayalda

charuta Blogger

AB: Your blog is also known for quirky DIYs, how it started?

CY (Charuta Yadav): I do not like mass produced fashion, I feel like it makes us all look like sheep, in my quest to wear something unique, something that has a sense of individuality to it I started doing DIYs which also led to my brand. Also I had seen my mom make clothes for me when I was a kid and those clothes were nothing like what other kids wore so that inspired me too.

AB: Favorite style inspirations?

CY: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.

AB: Heels or sneakers?

CY: Heels handsdown.

IMG_6590

AB: According to you the best era in fashion?

CY: It has to be sixties and seventies. Sixties and seventies were a game changer for women’s fashion. Sixties gave birth to the iconic mini and seventies was all about being bold and powerful. Women started suiting up. Hippie fashion, punk, goth, tailored dressing, these two era’s gave birth to so many trends and I can’t possibly chose between the two. It was a time of beautiful transition.

IMG_4094

AB: Favorite Bollywood movie who you enjoy watching for the sake of fashion & style?

CY: It has to be all of Sanjay Leela Bansali‘s movie.

AB: Fashion film you love watching?

CY : Cliche but Devil wears Prada, though I immensely enjoy watching biopics like Coco Chanel and House of Versace to know these designers started and eventually grew into fashion giants that they are today.

charuta Blogger in adagiony

AB: Your take on latest trends here in India?

CY: We need to keep up with the international trends.

IMG_4108

AB: Music on your playlist currently?

CY: Lana del ray, Coldplay & Hozier 

AB: Fashion book you highly recommend to aspiring fashion bloggers?

CY: None

AB: Manish Arora or Ashish UK?

CY: Manish Arora hands down. His clothes truly aren’t for the weak-hearted.

Pearl Academy-Portfolio 2017

Well it’s March already & we are fortunate to witness Pearl Academy’s Portfolio 2017 (as it usually happens by mid of May) & that too at 5th day of Amazon India Fashion Week, india’s most sought after fashion event. It couldn’t get bigger & better than this I guess(lucky students). Over 350 students showcased their design collection on this prestigious platform of AIFW. From fashion to jewelry to textiles to media & make-up students amazed everyone with their creative projects. Top models Sucheta Sharma, Aastha Ssidana, Donna Masih & Kanika Dev among various others strutted down the runway donning the student’s creation. Show was choreographed by one & only Rashmi Virmani. Have a look at these marvelous designs I shot at Portfolio 2017.
