While the Bombay weather does not allow you to wear too many layers of clothes but there is something about the festive season that makes you brave up to the heat and get on with life in best of your fineries.
A couple of my friends have been calling me asking what do I plan to wear for the most awaited Hindu festival – Diwali. After giving it a lot of thought I have decided to recycle my old clothes and figure out some way to wear them in this festive season. For instance I mixed and matched these old Palazzo pants with my Zara slit top that I bought sometime ago. Accessorise it with lots of Oxidised jewellery that is totally on point and in trend these days. Voila I am ready with my Diwali Outfit idea.
I have always attempted to make my work look more interesting by way of a theme or a story so that it doesn’t feel bland. I feel its important to tell a story or be a character or depict a mood to get something interesting out of your pictures otherwise we are all the Peas of the same Pod. This is about the queen of the jungle who is totally at peace with her surroundings and untouched or unscathed by the monstrosities of the Urban life. Trees are her friends and swans are her buddies. She enjoys being one with the nature and does not long for anyone to make her happy. She is happy with her ownself.
40 degree of Mumbai heat makes it almost impossible to get into serene state of mind but thanks to Ushmi for capturing these moments while I kept complaining about the unbearable heat and running off to sit in the cool cool air conditioning of my car that serves as my vanity van. Thank u Ushmi for letting me take my own time and not rushing me through the shoot. U are the sweetest.
