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.

Backstage-Felix Bendish-IISW

IISW season 2 (India International Style Week) day 1 saw grand opening by accessory designer Felix Bendish. Felix showcased his autumn/winter 2017 Ready-To-Wear collection which was also presented earlier this year at London fashion week . The collection merged accessories & clothing together. Felix is also know for mixing humour with fashion. The statements pieces were quite eye popping & were all handcrafted. The show was choreographed by show director Abhimanyu Singh Tomar. So here are some exclusive behind the scenes images I shot at backstage. I will also be posting the backstage highlights from day 2 of IISW in my next post. Till than enjoy this post.

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.
