Howrah Bridge SS '12
After months of want, need, contemplation, planning, model-hunting & time-scheduling; I finally did the much-delayed photo shoot of some of the clothes from the latest collection of my brand, Howrah Bridge. It was lots of hard work, but with quite satisfying results........and as they say, all's well that ends well, right? :)
My model hunt brought me in contact with quite a few amateur & professional models, but none of them seemed to be the type I was looking for! I DID NOT want a size zero anorexic model to be the face of my brand. I wanted a tall woman with curves......you know the type I mean? My clothes were for everybody and I wanted the girl modelling them to be like the average woman, instead of boasting of vital stats that everyone envies but very few have! And then fellow blogger Uparna of Fascinated or Fixated suggested that I could try out her sister who matched my requirements and who was currently home from her duties on her ship as a marine engineer. I met them, spoke to them and voila! It was all fixed up in a couple of days!! I had found the girl I wanted to put my clothes on!
One hectic day of ironing, packing, travelling to friend's studio, setting up the equipment, doing hair & make-up, styling, changing clothes one after the other, sweating it out in the harsh lights of the reflectors & flash, having a late & hurried Subway lunch; torturing Urmita (that's my model) with "a little more angle", "head up", "chin a bit more down" blah blah (you get the drift); last minute running around & okaying one shot after about taking 20-30 of them - and here I am, sharing the outcome of it all with you!
[You can still tell me if you don't like something, just be a bit mild, you know! :P]
All these products are available in various sizes & color options. In case any of you like something, please do shoot me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org! :)
Till next time.......
Lots of love,
