Fashion that unites: Our Eid shoot showcases the beautiful diversity of India
Festivals are the perfect occasion to celebrate India’s multiculturalism and tear down the walls that divide us.Updated: Jul 14, 2017 15:54 IST
Fashion is a great unifier. It has an amazing ability to trump hatred and foster love and harmony. This shoot is a tribute to this very quality of fashion that binds people across cultures and creates compelling images of unity in diversity that remain unscathed even in the wildest of storms. On the occasion of Eid, we present to you fashion that refuses to conform, fashion that rebels to transcend all man-made boundaries. Shubh Eid, everyone!
Model Arnela Zekovic’s white tussar silk sari with tiny heart motifs has been draped over a red ruffled dress. Her Mughal nath and shauqband (hand harness) give her look the perfect Eid twist. Model Vishwaraj Singh wears an off-white circular kurta with chikankari work, teamed with beige churidaar and a floral Nehru jacket.
Model Aarav Ahuja’s draped kurta is teamed with flared pants and a belted Nehru jacket. Model Devika Das’s marigold necklace adds a quick pop of colour to her gold-beige skirt and kurti.
Model Devika Das pairs her emerald green Banarasi kurta with silk pants and temple inspired dangler earrings. Deep oxblood lips, soft smokey eyes and sleek hair complete the look.
