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.

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.

Street Style- Tetseo Sisters

Tetseo sisters comprises of four sisters(Azi, Kuku, Lulu & Mercy) from Nagaland known for their folk inspired musical performances. I had a great chance of capturing three of them together to pose for my lens at last year’s Amazon India Fashion week Spring/Summer 2016. Tetseo sisters are also known for their personal style which is very colorful & quirky.

Zee Jaipur Literature Festival 2016 saw women in lot of colorful quirky prints & yes on all the age groups literally. Funky prints are definitely treat to eyes & was fascinated to see how these ladies styled them differently, after all jaipur lit fest is all about donning your personal style. Looking for a quirky style inspiration? Have a look at this photo essay I shot recently at the festival.

You can carry a colorful stole if you are bit hesitant in enbracing a colorful print. You can even tone down the colors of your patchwork top by simply pairing it with denim.
5
We saw quirky prints in various silhouettes.

Mix black & white print with colorful print for a soothing touch. An aztec print also works well to keep up with the festive mood at Zee JLF.

Prints are not only limited to clothes, you will find them almost everywhere, be it bagpacks,clutch or even on sneakers.

Riot of colors.

Florals for every age. I love people who dress up boldly without caring much about fashion or trends.

 

Hippie Vibes- Pushkar Fair 2015

 

Want to live the 60s hippie culture now? Pushkar city of Rajasthan is the right place to re-live the 60s youth movement. From people in dreadlocks to tie-dye T-shirts you will find it all here. Special recommendation to visit the city during Pushkar Fair which generally happens in the month of November(this year the dates are 8th Nov to 15th Nov 2016).

This street Style photo story is about the tourists I captured in candid moments at Pushkar Fair 2015.
