Day 1: backstage was abuzz bright and early. Shantanu & Nikhil and their gorgeous creations opened the week. Certain ‘so called’ stars were thrusted upon them but luckily for them Sameera Reddy didn’t fit into their outfit and Neha Uberoi was late~
But the brother duo were only too happy as their clothes didn’t need stars or even jewellery to complement them. Seriously, their clothes are celebrities in themselves. Their show started on time and this situation was the perfect example as to why we models are the only ones who should stick to the ramp. We’re professional, always on time, and fit into everything!
Meanwhile, a couple of girls who can actually be given due credit turned up on time for Narendra Kumar’s show. Priyanka Chopra and Mughda Godse. These girls have been models before and are even more familiar now with how the industry works as they’ve slipped into their characters for their film ‘Fashion’.
We joked, laughed and chatted backstage like one big family. Priyanka was ready on time and hung out with us, warm and friendly like she’s always been – that’s what I call being professional and humble.
The last show for Day 1 was Shane & Falguni Peacock. Their collection was true to the upcoming Spring/Summer trend – colourful and non-coordinated. Young, but with a hint of vintage style and very funky, perfect for ‘spendthrifts’.
Tired and hungry we all made our way to Olive for a big, big dinner. Who says models don’t eat?
