Tourism Chic-Street Style India

Tourism chic has emerged as one of the biggest trends as far the recent european fashion weeks are concerned. Seems like ‘being unfashionable’ is the latest style on the runway. Whether it’s the classic khakis, colorful hawaiian shirts teamed up with flip flops or the casual travel ready look, the fashion inspiration for most of the recent  spring/summer 18 catwalk shows especially in menwear seems like inspired by this new trend.

I have been photographing tourists on the streets of Rajasthan for quite some time now as I find the clothes they put up as interesting & sometimes extremely stylish. More or less this style is definitely a stand-out one. So here are some of the trends I spotted on the local streets of Jaipur & Pushkar.

Photographs by Abhimanyu Singh Rathore.

For an effortless bohemian look this local street bag is must. Also it allows you to carry so much of stuff while travelling, so it makes sense.

Backstage-DNA Fashion Connect

Pink city Jaipur witnessed another fashion extravaganza in form of season 1 of DNA fashion connect  which bought city based popular designers as well as upcoming designers on one platform to celebrate fashion & style. Fashion designer Gazal Mishra, Pooja Miglani, Suvigya Sharma, Karn Pratap Khuteta, Kirti Rathore &  Jaya Gajawat showcased the latest trends on the catwalk. The event also saw Bollywood actor Himansh Kohli, famous TV actor Aman Verma, Mr India finalist Bharat Sainani & top model Mudit Malhotra who walked the runway as showstoppers along with city’s popular faces Sangeeta Gharu, Dushyant Katewa & Priyanka Parashar. The show was directed by Abhimanyu Singh Tomar. Bollywood groovy tracks as well as international chartbusters like Cheap Thrills by Sia or Sorry by Justin Bieber were played on the catwalk.

Here I am sharing the personal portraits I shot at backstage (as usual) of the collection to give a closer look on details of the ensembles. While I was having fun shooting backstage, official photographer Jiten Agarwal was having blast shooting the runway (check the runway images on JPIC.in)
