Backstage-Ken Ferns

Ken Ferns runway show was definitely a party but what you might not be aware of is the backstage was equally a party in-fact a beachwear Hawaiian party to be precise. Ken Fern showcased his latest spring/summer collection at Jaipur for the first season of IISW (India International Style Week). Models were seen donning colorful floral headpieces, Geek glasses & were covered from head to toe in funky prints. Male models went a step ahead and were seen flaunting bare chested oiled bodies with summer tan & were wearing just printed beachwear shorts.

It seems like the print game is on in India with new designers & labels like Siddhartha Bansal, Quirk box & now Ken Ferns the quirky print trend has finally arrived to add lot of fun to your style. So through this photo essay I am taking you to the other side of runway i.e. backstage & giving you a closer look at Ken Ferns latest summer collection.

Show was not just about the typical catwalk, models were swirling & twirling on the runway. Models were also seen blowing whistles for the final run-through at the end.
