Photo Series- Tribute to Weavers of Rajasthan

This photo series is dedicated to the hardworking weavers of Rajasthan. Celebrating the rare luxury of Rajasthan handwoven fabrics.

Usually, fashion shoots are about showcasing designer’s creation & idea but this one is special as it focuses on the beauty & luxury of Rajasthan’s Handloom which are beautifully created by the weavers from various villages of the state. I shot this photo series using vibrant backdrops of Diggi Palace, Jaipur. These photographs were shot minutes before the fashion show at Rajasthan Heritage Week. Rajasthan Heritage Week is one of a kind initiative by khadi board along with government of Rajasthan in partnership with Prasad Bidapa Associates. Supermodels Lakshmi Rana & Sonalika Sahay along with other top models posed wearing beautiful ensembles created by the weavers of Rajasthan. Anu Merton & Nirjal Basnet were the stylists & the draping technique was displayed by Aryan Naidu.

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.

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.
