Street Style-Male Models at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 16


Though everybody is aware of the fact that modeling in India is women dominated field and it’s quite visible on the runways too, we rarely get to see any menswear show in the fashion weeks over here. But it seems this scene is changing this year & like Amazon India Fashion Week this time, Lakme Fashion Week too witnessed some solo shows on menswear. There was a time when male models  in our country used to be a household name. Remember the 90s supermodels  brigade including Arjun Rampal, Dino Morea, Milind Soman & Kelly Dorji. We used to see them in the pop music videos(Milind Soman in Asha Bhosle’s Raat Shabnami & very famous Made in India music video by Alisha Chinai), Bollywood movies, endorsing big brands & campaigns of A-list designers of our country. Gone are those days? Maybe not, as far as with the current male model scene is concerned the modeling game has slightly changed (a bit). And fortunately some of the male models have made it up to the mark & we often see them in fashion weeks, editorials and advertisement campaigns. This time I thought to do a street style photo story on top male models in our country right now at the biggest platform-Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016.  As far as the style factor goes, most of the models keep it easy as the climate was too hot in Mumbai. Denims & slogan printed T-shirts ruled the male model street fashion. So here is my take on country’s top male model’s street style.
