Hello Readers, Well this post is the first one after our website redesign. Cheers for that. Its been tough to move to wordpress from Blogger but the journey has been exciting with sleepless nights.
But, today to give you one more sleepless night, we have a hot versatile girl with us from Bangalore,India.
& let the talk begin..
I’m a from Bangalore. I did my schooling at Holy Child Convent and my Pre-University at National college-Jayanagar,Bangalore. I’m currently pursuing my degree in civil engineering at Global Academy of Technology.
I love and enjoy dancing, reading and travelling.
-I’ve always dreamt of being a successful model and an engineer.
-None. I do not have a background. It started very randomly, though I’ve dreamt of being a model right from childhood, I never thought the idea would infact manifest into reality. It started with a casual photo-shoot for a friend. No, it wasn’t for the money or pure kicks. It was perhaps for the glamour and color the field holds.
-I absolutely adore Aishwarya Rai Bacchan and Deepika Padukone, both who were amazing models before they became actresses. I also like Naomi campbell, Candice Swanepoel, Carol Gracias and Indrani Das Gupta. And as for the designers, I love Manish Malhotra, Nikhil and Santanu, Neeta Lulla, Ramesh Dembla, Ritu Kumar and Rohit Bal.
-I don’t really follow magazines or websites much. But I enjoy flipping through Vogue, Elle, Femina and Verve while waiting at the beauty parlor
-Being comfortable and confident in whatever you wear is the key to look gorgeous even if it’s a with pyjamas.
-I like being versatile. You will not find monochromes or a particular ‘type’ of clothing in my wardrobe. I wear everything from hot pants to traditional sarees; blacks and greys to neon colours; simple, tiny studs to heavy, large earrings that look like they’ll tear off your ears. So, it’s a mix of everything depending on my mood and occasion.
-I love shopping at Shoppers’ stop, west side, Koramangala, street shopping at commercial street, Brigade road, Tibetian Plaza etc.
It’s been less than a year since I started modelling. I have a lot to accomplish.
Every photograph has been special in its own way. My favourites are those clicked by Tuhin Biswas and Krishna Adoni in the woods on a hill on the outskirts of bangalore where I’m wearing a flowy white dress. And I also love the pictures where I’m wearing blues and greens that Anandjohn Wesley clicked during my shoot for a designer. The best ones are those clicked by leading fashion photographer, Mr. Manish Gupta for my portfolio. I love those!
Bangalore is an extremely diverse city with people from all over the world staying here. So, you’ll find a bit of everything that makes it so perfect and unique.
I love the fact that I get to meet lots of new people, make friends, wear pretty clothes (who doesn’t? ), pull off a graceful walk wearing sky high pencil heels (though it is sometimes a pain), have a fan following, being recognised etc. It makes me feel special.
The politics and corruption. The fact that models are sometimes taken for granted. It is extremely unfortunate that some people exploit models and expect them to compromise on their morals and ethics in return for fame and money. And it’s even more saddening that there are girls who’re blinded to everything else and are ready for it.
Be yourself. Never give up your self esteem or principles for anything, because nothing’s worth it. Be careful in choosing the right people in this industry.
I pack my necessities on the previous night. Make sure my nails are done, eyebrows in shape and hair washed; Have a healthy meal and get a good night sleep.
It’s a lot of fun working with the photographers. I make sure I meet the photographer before the shoot begins and get to know him/her, so that we’re both comfortable working in each other’s company. It’s also sometimes challenging because you’re expecting to bring to life with perfection, the image the photographer has in mind.
Not really. Like I said, if a person is confident in what he/she is wearing, they automatically become stylish and attractive.
Depends on who the photographer is. But I’ve had a pleasant experience in most of my shoots, because the photographers have generally been warm and supportive. It really helps when they share tips and advises and give us an honest opinion, and it also feels good when they pat your back and appreciate your work.
-Smart. If you can save an extra buck, why not?
-Manish Gupta, Tuhin Biswas, Anandjohn Wesley, Krishna Adoni, Prajwal Acharya, Manoj Aryan, Karthik Srinivasan etc.
Fashion is a way of life. It’s not just restricted to clothing.
A good model- Confident, Versatile, work-oriented, someone with the right attitude and who knows where he/she wants to reach one day.A bad one- anything otherwise.
-A good photographer is patient, warm, focused and honest with the model.
-The diversity, the number of places you can actually shop, the pricing, the number of choices in colours, texture, material etc. Its perfect!
-Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad.
Nothing much has changed except that I now have a larger fan following and people look at me in awe
We’re generally provided with make up artists and hair stylists. But even otherwise, I can take care of both since I’m big on styling even otherwise.
Height is a major criteria for run way models. Also, the attitude, body language, presentation are more important since one cannot use Photoshop to fix a flaw in runway modelling
I’ve done both indoor as well as outdoor shoots.
The red, black and white short dress and the saree.
-I love all my clothes. But most of my favorites are the ones my mom picks out for me. And, no, I do not have a personal uniform.
Both, actually. We play music to keep the atmosphere alive and to be enthusiastic. But, yes, there’s definitely talking.
