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.

Photo Essay-Backstage-Dhruv Kapoor

Shooting backstage is always fun, it is the main process room where models are getting dressed up & all not so fashionable things happen. Everybody is running here & there, make up artists are working on giving touch ups at the same time designers/stylists are giving the final touch to the collection, before the models go for catwalk. So I had a great opportunity of shooting backstage for Vogue India Fashion Fund winner Dhruv Kapoor’s Autumn/Winter 16 collection at recently happened Amazon India Fashion Week in New Delhi. The collection was blend of sports-luxe which is also his signature style (Remember the jumpers with  slogans ‘Cool’ & ‘India’ on Deepika Padukone & Ranveer Singh respectively in Vogue India) mixed with evening wear details. Fur with exaggerated sleeves, unfinished hems, buckle straps, sequins & combat boots were the main highlights of the collection.

There were ace photographers like Mehtaab Mann, Manasi Sawant of Elle India & Jimmy Granger shooting the backstage portraits & beauty shots with humongous equipments, directing the models confidently for the perfect shot. I was very much fascinated by seeing top models like Lakshmi Rana, Sony Kaur & Smita Lasrado to name a few posing for the camera backstage. I wanted to capture the ongoing backstage madness so this photo essay focuses on the action going on behind the scenes-making of a successful fashion show.
