Backstage-The Hottest Male Model Portraits

Since Rajasthan Heritage Week 2016 was full of crafts & celebrating the handmade in Rajasthan, the day 2 of the fashion week seems to be entirely dedicated to the handcrafted indian saree. The fashion week overall was high on womenswear but what grabbed the attention of the female attendees majorly were the handsome indian male models donning the 6 yards of grace (saree) with lot of panache & confidence. It was interesting to see how handcrafted sarees by the national awarded weavers were draped on male models, taking inspiration from ancient indian saree drapes.Talk about sarees as stole or sarees with denims, it included all the major possible experiments with 6 yards of fabric but on a male model body this time . So here is a small black & white photo essay celebrating the beauty of indian men in saree, which is very rare & completely deserves the attention.
