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.

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.

Backstage-DNA Fashion Connect

Pink city Jaipur witnessed another fashion extravaganza in form of season 1 of DNA fashion connect  which bought city based popular designers as well as upcoming designers on one platform to celebrate fashion & style. Fashion designer Gazal Mishra, Pooja Miglani, Suvigya Sharma, Karn Pratap Khuteta, Kirti Rathore &  Jaya Gajawat showcased the latest trends on the catwalk. The event also saw Bollywood actor Himansh Kohli, famous TV actor Aman Verma, Mr India finalist Bharat Sainani & top model Mudit Malhotra who walked the runway as showstoppers along with city’s popular faces Sangeeta Gharu, Dushyant Katewa & Priyanka Parashar. The show was directed by Abhimanyu Singh Tomar. Bollywood groovy tracks as well as international chartbusters like Cheap Thrills by Sia or Sorry by Justin Bieber were played on the catwalk.

Here I am sharing the personal portraits I shot at backstage (as usual) of the collection to give a closer look on details of the ensembles. While I was having fun shooting backstage, official photographer Jiten Agarwal was having blast shooting the runway (check the runway images on JPIC.in)
