Street Style-Models Off Duty at AIFW A/W 16

We see them on runway channeling attitude & personality according to the designer’s theme & collection. But what is the real side of fashion models? what they like? how they dress up off the ramp? These were the certain questions I had in my mind,  so I stalked the top models of our country for 5 days during Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 16 & this photo essay is the answer. I didn’t want the models to pose for this photo story particularly looking into the camera (like we see in most of the fashion publications & websites) so I just followed them like a paparazzi.

Of course they look amazing on ramp but it’s their off duty style which tells a bit about their personality & the style they follow, isn’t that interesting? Have a look.

Sumiran Kabir Sharma, Fashion designer label 'Anaam' His label 'Anaam' is definitely one to follow and so his style. I find this particular style very much inspired by the London Grunge in the 90s. Loved the way he paired vest with wide legged trouser along with dark boots.

Mayank Chauhan, Visual Designer at Amazon India
Mayank Chauhan, Visual Designer at Amazon India. Thinking of pairing stripes & checks? Well this can be a very good example of how to style these two classic patterns.

Kalee Rajput, Fashion Stylist You might be thinking that it's a jumpsuit but it's not. Fashion Stylist Kalee brilliantly paired the printed shirt with matching printed trousers. The metallic tribal neckpiece definitely makes this guy a complete  STATEMENT maker.
