I’ve always been an old soul. My ideas of romance and life in general are quite outdated in today’s age of Bumble and Tinder. Of course, older ideas like patriarchy and everything that comes with it has no place in my life. One can say that I have filtered the good from the past and left the rest behind. Does that make sense? Maybe not.
Learning from this shoot: I can get inside a sewer if you promise me a great picture.
Hi people, who are sweet enough to still open my website. Thank you for doing that. I may have shifted most of my work to videos but there is no denying that I absolutely love creating pictures. Whether I’m in it or behind the lens, it does not matter.
I did this one with my favourite photographer, Aparna Mohindra who jumps on any idea like a fox and invests herself 200% in the same. For safety purposes, I also managed to rope in my brother, Anmol Singh, the only person with a penis in the group. He, however, ended up doing a lot of work. Atreyi, the make up artist, may have almost died in the heat but she did her best job.
In 2012 when I was in second year of college, my whole wardrobe was full of polka dots. The girls in my PG accommodation would crinkle their noses every time they saw me wearing another outfits with a million dots on it. Everyone had had enough of my polka dot obsession but me. With time, however, it did fade. I got more into other ridiculous trends of the time and left the dots behind.
2018 started with a bang of trends on the runway. Maybe I am old enough to realise or this year is special, but trends have been literally blasted from a canon. From feathers to florals, from belt bags (fancy name for fanny packs you guys!) to dramatic shoulders, everything you’re wearing right now might fit in one of 2018’s trends (or subtrends, lel).
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”. This quote by Buddha is the first one that pops when you google self love quotes. Take a moment and read it again.
While summers have us experiment with skirts, shorts, cropped pants and what not, in winters we tend to fall back on some good ol’ jeans. And that, my friend, makes it boring.
I personally love keeping it even more fun in winters as the gloomy mornings are already dull of tackle with. I love playing with colours, patterns, textures and fabrics . Plaid definitely has to be one of the top ones when it comes to winter fabrics. It’s made out of wool so definitely warm and the chequered pattern makes it all the more interesting.
If you have always enjoyed wearing heels, and choose to wear the pointed beauties over a pair of sneakers, I salute you. I literally bow down to thee. I have been the sneakers over heels girl for the most of my life and I vividly remember walking home barefoot after my school’s farewell party where I first had a real encounter with a pair of heels. Not just trying my cousin’s heels and taking two steps feeling all fancy and feminine, but a real encounter. It was two inch heel, yes TWO inch and I couldn’t bear them.
