Hey guys.. This is the 2nd Styling shoot I did and the theme for this one was “ADDICTED”
ADDICTED is a story about a girl who fell madly in love. So mad that his love would run through her veins day in & day out. One day the things do not remain the same. He breaks her heart and leaves her all alone. This Editorial is her journey from Shock to Acceptance.
If you have ever gone through a heartbreak (& I hope not) you would know its the worst kind of feeling in the world. Love is like a drug that completely consumes you and you are so habituated to it that it seems rather impossible to fathom a world without that person. To go through a heartbreak is like cleansing your system from every last speck of drug that has been there in your blood for so long. Imagine separating something from your blood!!
There are various stages a person goes through. First comes the Shock when you are still struggling to come to terms with the reality. Everything is a Haze. You can see your whole world crumbling but you are still in Denial. Then comes the Pain which is so excruciating that you feel like thousand knives stabbing through your heart. The feeling makes you so sick in your stomach & you feel helpless. Then comes the Anger where you want to destroy everything around you including you. You care a f@*# about the world. Sometimes you take help of external factors to numb the pain and sometimes you just let your heart bleed. Then the Depression & Loneliness hits you. The memories kill you. You go from sudden highs to terrible lows. You want to be left alone. You feel lonely, worthless & hopeless. This is the stage when you are struggling with lots of Ups & Downs & You want to feel better but some thought pulls you down. This is also the stage when things start to feel a little better. You start thinking about Reconstructing your life and looking into the future. You Accept that moving forward is the only solution and you look at the world with a new Hope & Belief that it was probably for the best & that one day it will all make sense.
We have tried to capture these stages & the agony & grief of this girl through this shoot.
This too was a high fashion shoot & every look was worked out based on the stages that were being depicted. Doriana carried out each look with élan. Just as I had envisioned it and Esha from Fat Mu did fabulous work with Makeup & Hair. Sandeep once again works magic and captures the pain with so much professionalism. I had great fun styling for the shoot and met these amazing people. Have a look and let me know what you think?
