Its 4 am and I am struggling to open my eyes. However, the thought of this unconventional and exciting shoot makes me jump out of bed. To do full justice to the looks that I had in mind, we traveled into the wilderness for perfect location and shots.
In today’s brutally competitive fashion landscape, Payal Khandwala stands out as she offers something that is distinct and honest abandoning the conventional Indian stereotypes. She has carved out a niche for herself with contemporary silhouettes and rich jewel tones.
Grecian Princess is the first thing that comes to my mind when I talk about this look. A pleated royal blue flowy cape was paired with a gold rust silk skirt. The eyes were kept sensual and strong with a smoky depth of kohl with extended lashes. The dramatic stroke of gold illuminated the lips. The headdress and the bird ring gave the look a totally different perspective.
I felt like a royal plumed peacock ready to dance when the first slats of rain slam the dust.
I can’t give out more details about the accessories as its a work in progress project close to my heart. So please stay tuned.
Back to the concrete Jungle. A long day, but every moment creatively spent. Hope you guys like this content.
Until next time,
