What an amazing week I got to witness in February! From attending a blogger event in Kolkata to flying down to Pune to visit a fabulous vineyard in Baramati to come back and attend the Bengal Fashion Week. Filled with excitement and new experiences 2014 has kicked off to a very good start and one can only hope that it gets better with each passing month! Thanks to the wonderful team at The Body Shop India I got to attend a fashion show for the first time in my life. I did attend a press meet for one in Mumbai but could not attend the actually event. But it was great to go to one on my home turf. Body shop was the official makeup partner for the event.
We then walked out and took our seats….in a few moments Jattinn’s show came on. The theme was “Me and I” and featured a monochromatic palette. The models sashayed on the ramp in shades of white, black and grey…They were accompanied with male models and some of them were built and so fine 😉 The collection had a very relaxed and had a modern feel to it. I liked that the materials looked so comfortable and flowy in certain cases. Quite a wearable collection! The show stopper was Meera Chopra (Priyanka Chopra’s cousin and a new entrant to the industry). She wore a black sari with a skimpy bedazzled bikini top.
Ahh! What a day! We stumbled out of the place all tired, thirsty but extremely happy 😀 You cant even begin to imagine all the chaos and hard work that goes into a single show. On the ramp things are so organized and happen so fast but backstage is a complete turmoil. Models at their tempers end back there transform completely on the ramp with a smile in their steps and a sway on their hips. Lol! Great to see. Oh And we got some great goodies from the brand…They we generously gave us a 2 of the color crush eyeshadows, one lipstick and their recently launched Chamomile makeup remover. I will be reviewing these babies soon. Thank you so much Aanchal, Shikhee and Lavli for the invite! You guys rocked it and it was such a wonderful thing to see. Cheers!
