Photo Essay-Style

‘Style’ a term used many times when we read a fashion magazine or when we talk about fashion in general. As I always love documenting street fashion at the fashion weeks I thought to try out something new which defines the term ‘style’ more than clothes. This photo essay focuses on interesting faces I met at the fashion week & the result is below.

Models Off duty-Street Style-Lakme Fashion Week

Well! we all love what models wear on the runway, thousands of pictures are taken of the beautiful outfits on the catwalk, get published in ‘n’ number of magazines & newspapers but not much is mentioned about model’s off duty style. I was very much fascinated by the idea of capturing the models in their true style, focusing on what they wear off duty, when they are not on the runway, how they dress up & also was keen on capturing some candid moments on the street.Like a true paparazzi or say like a style stalker I followed the models on the streets to investigate their personal style. What’s your favorite model off duty style? Mention in the comment section below.

So here is a major throwback to last season of Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 16.

P.S. it’s a long post with over 40 images, so keep scrolling 😉

The Fashion i-Workshop- Pearl Academy

Last week was full of fun & was completely memorable as I had this wonderful opportunity to do a collaborative fashion visual making workshop with photographer Tarun Garg at Pearl Academy, Jaipur. It was completely a different experience as I graduated two years back from Pearl Academy & now conducting this workshop with the students of the academy as a guest faculty. The 3 day workshop included lot of fun activities & of course the best part was photoshoots. It was interesting to see new students coming up with fresh ideas & even more fun was to guide them throughout the whole project & also to work so closely with the upcoming designers.

I won’t say much but I was impressed with the enthusiasm of the students & here is how we worked together on this workshop.

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.
