Backstage-Rainbow Show-LMIFW SS 19

What a grand ending for Lotus Makeup India Fashion week spring/summer 19. More than 40 designers came together to celebrate love, colour and the historic section 377 judgement of 2018. The backstage was no less than colourful pride parade. I feel extremely lucky to witness and capture these beautiful moments at backstage and sharing all of these with you guys.

Photo essay-Day 2-Backstage-Rajasthan Heritage Week

Day 2 of Rajasthan Heritage Week was all about celebrating creations by the national awardee weavers & artisans. Along with the artisans the show also witnessed collections by veteran designers including Rohit Kamra, Rajneeral, Bangalore based Manish Saksena & Pavithra Muddaya.

I placed myself as ususal at backstage, observing & shooting the collections closely. For Day 2 I wanted to explore the minimalist photography with clean frames focusing on the colors of the creations & mostly with only one or two models in a frame. A big thanks to all the models who were very patient & comfortable with me to create some nice portraits. Also it was interesting to shoot so many female models donning beautiful saris by the weavers of Rajasthan. I personally loved the collection by Rajneeral as it was very edgy & full of prints with quirk. The day ended with the collection by Jaipur’s very own Rohit Kamra who presented his line of contemporary menswear in woollen khadi in well tailored cuts. The silhouette included breeches, sherwanis, bandhgala & achkan.
