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.

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.

Tourism Chic-Street Style India

Tourism chic has emerged as one of the biggest trends as far the recent european fashion weeks are concerned. Seems like ‘being unfashionable’ is the latest style on the runway. Whether it’s the classic khakis, colorful hawaiian shirts teamed up with flip flops or the casual travel ready look, the fashion inspiration for most of the recent  spring/summer 18 catwalk shows especially in menwear seems like inspired by this new trend.

I have been photographing tourists on the streets of Rajasthan for quite some time now as I find the clothes they put up as interesting & sometimes extremely stylish. More or less this style is definitely a stand-out one. So here are some of the trends I spotted on the local streets of Jaipur & Pushkar.

The loose fitted Hawaiian shirts are very common among tourists visiting India especially Rajasthan.
Bohemian Bag-jhola-street style india-colors
For an effortless bohemian look this local street bag is must. Also it allows you to carry so much of stuff while travelling, so it makes sense.

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.
