Shooting with actress Vidya Malvade was special this time, as most of the shoot was done outdoors. The weather was pleasant and breezy and the concept was embedded with freshness and novelty. Compared to the earlier indoor cover shoots, this outdoor cover shoot was completed in the shortest time. Vidya too was captivated by the efficiency and systematic approach of the Models n Trends dynamic team. Her looks, captured in the refreshing surroundings of nature, are really awesome. Thanks Vidya for being by my side and spreading your charm.

FASHION THIS WINTER By Riddhi & Siddhi, fashion designers

Be the first to know which colour and apparel will keep you exhilarated and engrossed this fall-winter season...


ashion is a vital part of our life and is a way to evolve into happiness. For different occasions and times, we follow a variety of fashion. However, with the change of season, fashion also transforms. Follow these suggestions and add a freshness to your wardrobe according to the latest trends this season and be prepared to keep the raving admirers at bay.

Jumpsuit and playsuits Jumpsuits have reappeared time and again in high fashion because they flaunt a perfect figure. They are generally regarded as a convenient garment, as they are simple to launder and put on than a gaudy ensemble. Smart and sophisticated, a tailored playsuit is suitable for office as well as day or night events. Choose a playsuit with crisp fabric, cuffed shorts and cinched in waists.

Maxi dress Maxi dress is one of the most eye-catching outfits, which has also returned to the glamourised world of fashion, this season. This exceptionally heart-warming garment can be worn on various occasions. Maxi dresses are generally ankle length or sometimes even floor length. They come in all styles and sizes and are one of the most flattering types of dresses for fashion suave women. These dresses are designed in such a way that they cling to the body at the correct places. To emphasise a figure, they tend to cut in at the waist, then roll over the hips and flow down to the feet. This creates a striking effect and excellently presents the best parts of the wearer’s body. New sheer maxi dresses are adding a fresh dimension to this flattering form of dressing and it is expected that many more women will be seen sporting them this season.

70's sophisticated fashion 'If you are going for a day event then choose clean yet voluminous silhouettes and earthy 70’s colour palettes. Try high waisted wide-leg pants or flares, which should be smartly belted. You can also choose neat bow blouses, especially ones with billowing or bishop sleeves in fabrics like silk and satin. For the more daring, a pair of hot pants is the ultimate 70’s item, to be an eye candy. A smartly tailored jumpsuit is another great alternative to flaunt a style statement this season. For night events, the 70’s sophisticated fashion transforms into the ultimate socialite adorned in the look-at-me shimmering fabrics and cuts, which either tightly hug or sensually drape over her body. Choose 70’s disco inspired high sheen fabrics like lurex, silk or fabric with metallic threads. Choose a shiny bustier under a tailored blazer or tuxedo jacket and wear it with a semi-fitted pair of pants. Long, slinky gowns with draping, low necklines or dress slits are the ultimate fashion style of 70’s for a glamorous night.

Indian wear for celebrations For an elaborate wedding party, go glam with a tailored anarkali suit, which is perhaps the perfect example of vintage fashion with an Indian silhouette. However, you don’t need to stick to the traditional fashion. There are other styles of layered anarkalis, which feature layers of sheer fabric such as chiffon, net, stitched over a brocade or a crepe anarkali kameez.


MAR - APR 2014 Models Trends


Colour trends this winter Orange: This vibrant, energetic colour seems to be the most exciting colour of winter 2011 fashion trend. Black: Black is an elegant colour and is worn to present a fine slim look. This colour is loved for these characteristics. In fact, this colour looks great in any season for party wear. Blue and navy: These are fantastic colours for clothing. Garments of these colours are universally popular in the fashion circle as they easily team up with other tones and prints.

Deep purple and bright pink: Although these colour tones are not amongst the hottest colour trends of winter 2011, yet these cannot be ignored. Designers have played with deep purple, dark violet and neon pink colours in their collections. In spite of using these colours scarcely, the collections are more cheerful.

Styles to watch out for this season are longer hemlines, high waist and pencil skirts to give a sexy hour glass figure. It is chic to wear brocade or embroidered kurtas with seam at the waist and a flounce for the skirts. If you want a more contemporary look, try brocade pencil skirts or trousers with fitted corsets or short embroidered, tailored jackets. The silhouettes of the 1950’s and 1960’s era can be teamed with kurtas to give you that high fashion and modern look this festive winter season. Colours such as amparo blue and tuscany inspired colour palette are perfect for celebrations. Amparo blue is a very distinct and pure blue. It has deep richness and also has fewer cobalt and royal tones in it. It tends to be the perfect colour for an evening apparel. Tuscan palettes have colours that include pale gold, sage green, rust red and cream colour combinations. These are safe colours to wear during the day. Colours like turquoise blue and combination of red and blue work best for weddings and festivals. 12

Casting Couch FOR MALE ONLY


odelling is not only an educational qualification, which everyone can acquire. It is surely a gifted quality that some can master through dedication, hard work, self belief and above all, a strong will to sustain. It often takes you to the edge of quitting, and rejection before a shower of name, fame, and money. It is true that often models earn much more than an Anup Banerjea Ace fashion choreographer MBA graduate. Although their shelf life is short, but the rewards remain as a pleasant memory throughout their life. You become an icon to many aspiring models and you share your experiences with them. However, in case you take a wrong step; your short interrupted rendezvous with this modelling world definitely leaves a wound and a scar in your mind, throughout your life. Here I will discuss about ‘casting couch’, which exists in almost every profession but is never talked about. Since this profession deals with beautiful and bolder people, so it gets lots of media attention and often professional hazards make headlines in newspapers and glossy magazines. I was once in the office of a fashion photographer cum model coordinator to select some male models for one of my forthcoming fashion shows. During this time, the cell phone of this coordinator started ringing. Since he 20


Models Trends MAR - APR 2014

was working on the laptop and I was in a hurry to leave, he kept his cell on the speaker phone, so unwillingly I had to hear his conversation. After some usual telephonic courtesy, I heard the next question, “Any new arrivals?” The coordinator said, “Many.” The next question was, “If someone is worthy then send him to me, we are having a party. We are at Hotel Metro (name changed), room number 1215.” The coordinator replied, “Let me see.” Both hung up their phones. Soon, I saw the coordinator texting some lines and then he sent this SMS with a long list of contacts, which he had on his cell. Thereafter, he continued assisting me with my selection. We spent around an hour, while working together. After some time, again the cell rang, but this time it was not on the speaker mode. The coordinator happily told the caller, “Good, you asked for one and you got three! Happy now?” Both started laughing and then the coordinator said, “ Becharo ko kuch kaam to de dena…” They hung up, but my curiosity compelled me to ask what was going on. The coordinator replied very comfortably, “These new boys are struggling for a break in this profession. Someone wanted them for some personal work, so I messaged the demand to around twenty young boys. It seems that three of them found it acceptable, so they are now there, having a good time, hope so.” “Boss, this is very common and comparatively safer than with girls,” he concluded. This is another side of the glamour world where almost everyone is desperate to make it big and make it fast, by hook or by crook. Alas! The results many a time are not as expected through this route and can lead to loss of self respect and a state of depression. There are cases when some have made it and reached mid way through these shortcuts. However, in this hellion’s journey, they become immune to the hard question raised by their own conscience and by their own standard of morality. Every day, many boys across the country arrive in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore with a dream of becoming a model, and then may be a TV artist or a film star. It seems everyone is in a hurry to get a ticket to stardom. Let me tell you frankly that rejection is a part of this industry. Sometime it takes months to get a simple ramp show or a photo shoot. If these greenhorns are from another city, then the daily expenses are astronomical. They have to arrange for their room rent, food, travelling, workout etc. and it is also necessary for them to maintain a decent lifestyle. However, limited resources and everyday rejection make these poor souls gullible and easily trapped. Imposters in the garb of fashion designers, fashion choreographers and casting directors are always on the look out to dupe these strugglers. They often create false situations to manipulate human body and their emotions. Many a times, these naives are made to believe that if they let that creature misuse their body, they may get a break in some fashion show or a side role in a TV soap.


MAR - APR 2014 Models Trends


It is very true that this ugly face of our modelling and fashion world does exist. There is a strong nexus amongst the demanding community and the supplying agents. Unfortunately, the thinking of these boys to get a simple break in this industry in no time, is not appropriate. In my career, spanning two decades as a fashion choreographer and show director, I have understood that only those have made it big in this industry, who are dedicated and hardworking. It is also true that a majority of the people in this industry are very fair, trust worthy and genuinely helpful. This is a small industry and you have to learn to be diplomatic in handling

these people. So boys, grow up and have faith in yourself. You have not come here to be exploited. Be firm and achieve your goal. I am giving you five tips, which will help you in handling these sticky situations: 1. Remain alert while attending an audition. See if a coordinator, casting director or fashion designer is trying to be over helpful. Try to understand the hidden meaning when you are in a conversation. 2. There are some shameless people, who by virtue of becoming so called powerful in this industry, may directly ask favours in lieu of giving you a break. In that case, be polite but clearly tell them that you are not interested. If you are not clear in your statement, he may mistake you as someone who is ready. This may land you in hot water later. 3. Try to identify genuine people through other fellow models. Go and show them your credentials. There are many who will come forward to support you. 4. Avoid meeting people directly. If you are not sure about his personality, prefer going through a known coordinator, fellow models or through a trusted reference. 5. Finally, no work is worth doing, if you have achieved it through shortcuts. Have patience and rest assured that your time will also come. This wonderful industry has both positive, as well as negative shades. In my endeavour to create an awareness, I will explore several avenues. Remember that once you learn to handle these tricky situations, you will soon find that sky is the limit. So get set to face this enigmatic industry and come out as a winner!

It’s Christmas time again; a time for presents and a time to party. So party in style on this illuminating occasion with tips from Aakriti Kochar, Beauty and Makeup Expert, Oriflame India.

Shimmering it out For the festive season, the best way to bring glow to your face is by adding a dash of shimmer. Add gold/silver shimmer to the eyes in the evenings, when stepping out to celebrate the festival or heading out for a party.

The festive glow Using bronzers and highlighters will make your skin glow making it as wonderful as the glow of Christmas. Bronzers not only add colour, but also define your cheeks to highlight your best features.

Brightening the eyes If you are not too much of a shimmer person, add slight white / golden shimmer eye shadow to the inner corner of the eyes. This brightens up the eyes instantly and gets you ready to head out.

Be bold Defining brows is an essential part of grooming your face. It helps in framing the face well, automatically adding boldness.

Lining up the festivities Playing with eyeliners is a good idea this season. Wear from very sleek to thick black/ interestingly shaped eyeliners and pick the colour red for your lips to relate to the festive color. Bronzed skin, groomed brows with these do justice to this look.

A dramatic Christmas Christmas is incomplete without drama. The perfect way to add drama to your look is by wearing a dark red lipstick. Keep in mind to highlight one strong feature in your 28

face. It could either be eyes or lips, etc. Don’t overdo the make-up as it may end up looking gaudy.

Playing with the shadows If you like to experiment with eye shadows, wear gold/ silver eye shadow in combination with purple, blue or green in horizontal or vertical stripes and blend it well. Wear thin eyeliner, lots of mascara to make your eyes stand out. Neutral skin/nude lips with gloss will complete the look.

amazingly glamorous and a slick look.

The bold and the beautiful One can also wear signature bold eyeliner and open their hair with soft wavy curls to look mesmerisingly beautiful.

A bun for everyone Tie your hair into a chic bun at the back or on the side with a bold lip colour to look fabulous for those elegant dinners and parties.

Reflecting light

A part of Christmas

We see lots of shimmer and glitter in the décor during festivities. So why not glitter up on the eyes as well , and wear gold, silver, white shimmer based eye shadow on eyes with thin eyeliner. Give the skin a dewy and healthy finish, such that it reflects back the light and the joy of the festival.

For an even more glamorous look, part the hair to the side in open wavy curls and let it fall on one shoulder. The look is complete with a bright red lipstick.

Spellbinding lashes Someone who wants to dramatize their look can wear false lashes. There is a wide variety available: coloured, studded, gold/ silver, long, dramatic or volumised; that leave everyone spellbound, just like the Christmas carols.

Slick and sleek When going dramatic with the makeup, wearing a sleek high ponytail gives an

Bouncing with joy When opting for subtle makeup, blow dry your hair and give it bouncy layers. The key is to still make the face glow. One can also play with different kinds of blushes. Creamy and gel based blushes are a hit for this weather as they add the needed gloss/ shine.

Getting creative Paint your nails in bright tones of reds or get interesting nail arts with graphics, studs, etc, as per your choice.

Follow these easy steps to become a Christmas Goddess and take everyone’s breath away!





ancing Turkeys, a premium turkey and turkey meat products brand, recently made a foray into the Indian market by launching a varied palette of turkey products for its meat lovers. Turkey meat is one of the largest consumed nutritious meats in America, EU and the EMEA regions. However, due to various reasons like size, taste, availability and demand, this meat did not really gain traction in the Indian market. With the peak festive season approaching, Dancing Turkeys opened the gates for it and is all set to roll out its gorgeous array for the food menu list. The brand epitomises quality, consistency and reliability. Dancing Turkeys is the pioneer in introducing turkey meat products in India and South Asia. Dan Turk Farms and Services Pvt Ltd (DTFS), owner of the Dancing Turkeys brand, is a leading farmstead focussed completely on providing nutritional food to the Indian masses. While Dancing Turkey is currently focussing on Turkey Meat, DTFS soon plans to enter into other new categories that India has not seen before. This makes DTFS an innovation hub in the food processing space and an enabler to expand the food consumption basket which is skewed towards health foods. Sharing his vision on transforming the brand into a food processing powerhouse, Mr Sameer Mathur, Managing Director & CEO, Dancing Turkeys, said, “With a distinct change in the lifestyle of Indian consumers, there is a huge surge in nutritional demand of foods and Dancing Turkeys fills this gap perfectly here. We are planning to make Dancing Turkeys as, one of the strongest brands

in its category outside the United States. Turkey consumption today makes it a festive food, but we would like to change that perception, and make it as much a staple diet as possible. We believe that Dancing Turkeys shall bring about healthier citizens, which in turn shall build a healthier India. We would like to usher a small change in the eating habits, and drop the misnomer that non vegetarian diet is bad for health”. Dancing Turkeys has tied up with leading chefs to create turkey recipes for the Indian masses, largely to enable trials and garner interest.

Vidya MalVade How is Vidya as a person in real life? I am very chilled out and an easy going person. I love my family and also like to spend time with my friends. My friends call me Monica, a fictional character in the popular US television situation comedy F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Sometimes, I become a little moody but I always keep in mind not to hurt anyone’s feelings. Starting your career as an air hostess, how did you get into modelling? Actually, I was working as an air hostess in Lufthansa Airlines. However, my job timing was not fixed and often I got a break of seven to ten days. Once, I got an offer for a commercial on television (TVC) and I liked the idea. After that offers started pouring in and I decided to take modelling as a full time career. Was it your dream to be an actress or you wanted to do something else in your early days? No, I never thought of becoming an actress. I wanted to become a flight attendant. All my friends were in the airlines. So, it was quite natural for me to join them. Modelling happened by chance. However, I found myself at ease in this profession and started accepting new offers. When I felt confident in front of the camera and in acting for TVC’s, I thought of trying my luck in movies and luckily got a chance to work in director Vikram Bhatt’s movie Inteha.

How do you feel being recognised as the ‘Chak De India Girl’? Do you love the glamourised life of a celebrity? I really like it. It is a great honour for an actor to be known by his work. This movie opened new doors for my career in Bollywood. I am lucky to have such a wonderful role in the initial days of my career. It is a wonderful feeling to be recognised as a ‘special’ one amongst the crowd. I love the way people show respect and greet me in public places and parties. However, a celebrity also has some responsibilities towards his audience.

What was your parents’ reaction over your decision to enter the glamour industry? How does your family feel now about your achievements? My parents never stopped me from doing any work. They have always been supportive and confident about me and my job. When I decided to be an air hostess, they welcomed my decision. When I decided to leave my airlines job and join the glamour industry, they never asked me, why I am doing so? They always say that live your life and dreams fully, so that you don’t have any regret in your life later. They feel proud of my achievements and recognition.

My Favourites Movie: Chak De India; Lagaan; The Dark Knight; When Harry Met Sally. Actor: Shahrukh Khan and Johnny Depp. Actress: Madhuri Dixit, Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts. Colour: Red and white. Book: The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Perfume: Dolce and Gabbana and Chanel. Outfit: Flowing dresses. Holiday destination: Anywhere on a cruise. Fashion brands: Jimmy Choo, Tory Buech, Roberto Cavalli, Tom Ford and Chanel. Fitness mantra: Yoga and pilates. Food: Thai and Japanese.

Are you planning to be a part of any TV serial or reality show in future? I don’t want to do a 24x7 job, so I am not planning to do a TV serial. I have good movie offers from reputed banners. I am a skilled dancer and I love cooking. So, if I ever take part in a reality show, I would prefer either a dance based or cooking competition show. I would love to host a cookery show like Akshay Kumar. Do you think that good looks and good physique help in modelling and acting or something else is required? Comment. Good looks and physique surely help in both modelling and acting professions. However, your ability to perform in front of the camera counts more. If you do not have acting skills, your face is not able to reflect your feelings and you are not confident to face the people. Thus, you cannot be successful. Do you always want to do movies like Chak De India? Is there any reason to not to do a latka jhatka and totally masala oriented Bollywood movies? If I say that I will always do the same kind of movies then it would be an injustice to my inner artist. An actor is always eager to perform various challenging roles, which help him to learn more. A movie like Chak De India comes once in years. It would be silly to expect that every movie would score high like this one. For me a good director, script and character matter a lot. So, I am ready to do even a formula movie, if it has all the desired elements.

What are your favourite garments and fashion accessories for flaunting a style statement? It depends on my mood and the occasion. I love fashion bags, shoes, gold and diamond jewellery. In clothing, I like gowns, traditional Indian wear, jeans, T-shirts etc. The essential part of my fashion is that I should carry these gracefully and should look good. Do you think that for an actress, besides luck and labour, her sex appeal is also important? Yes, it is important for an actress to be a complete package, otherwise who will call you an actress. The industry today is highly competitive. So not only in reel life, in real life also a woman must try to excel in all aspects. How do you see the present modelling industry? What advice or tips would you like to share with the young girls, who are entering the modelling world? Today, young aspirants consider modelling a gateway to Bollywood. Therefore many more youngsters are eager to be a model, but my advice to them is to prepare first for this profession and not be mesmerised by its glamour only. Get complete knowledge and information of the industry first and undergo proper grooming. Girls should especially take care of themselves and their body. They should not be tempted by any phoney offer, of which there are many.

What changes do you observe in today’s cinema and its audience? The audience today is more receptive towards different genres of cinema. They love to watch not only formula films but social, comedy and drama films also. Many directors are following the off beat track and are successful. Raju Hirani of Munna Bhai series is a case in point. He is my favourite and I appreciate his treatment on this subject. Then we have Chak De India, which glorified Indian sports. So, the way our cinema is shaping up is really encouraging for us. What are your future plans? Tell us about your upcoming movies and your roles? I have some good banners and movies under my belt. However, it is not possible for me to mention all those. I am working with good directors and actors. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia is a name I would like to mention here, whose movie I have been shooting

these days on various locations. I am acting in comedy, drama and social movies, which will be released in the coming days. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Apart from acting, what are your other penchants? Apart from movies, I love dancing, which is my first passion. I am not only a trained kathak dancer but also know other forms of dancing. I love fashion, food and love cooking too. I like music and travelling, especially on cruise. How was your experience while shooting with Anup Bhandari, Chief Editor, ModelsnTrends magazine? It was a wonderful experience. He is such a nice guy. I was apprehensive about a lengthy shoot, but we finished the shoot very fast and even I was not aware about the fact when the photo shoot got over! It was really nice shooting with him and I had lots of fun, as he made it all look so easy.

Scrubbing is a popular method to take care of the skin, and is highly recommended‌


omen today have realised that exfoliation is a necessity to remove impurities like dust and grime that accumulates on the face during the course of the day. To exfoliate, use a scrub, which sloughs off dead skin cells and unclogs pores by removing deeply embedded impurities like blackheads and whiteheads. Thus, a facial scrub is an essential component for skin care. Removing dirt, dust and oil, at least once a week is essential, so as to ensure that the pores of the skin do not clog up, thereby resulting in acne. The face skin is more delicate than other parts of the body. This fact, combined with the higher levels of environmental damage, requires that

Using a facial scrub is very simple. Here are a few tips to use scrubs properly to give your skin that lovely glow: • Squeeze a little amount into the palm of your hand and add a few drops of water so that the scrub moves easier than it does straight out of the bottle. Move the scrub around so that it covers your fingertips. • Apply the scrub in a circular motion, starting at the chin and working outward and upward. Be gentle as you move across the upper lip and work around the eyes. Do not apply the scrub to the eyelids. Give a couple of extra circular rubs to the cheeks, forehead and chin. These areas tend to collect dead cells easily and more frequently. • Rinse off the scrub gently. Make sure to keep your eyes closed as you do this. Apply a light moisturiser to finish. • Remember your skin is not a greasy dish. The goal is to remove the dead cells and not to harm it. Follow these simple guidelines and gift yourself, a healthy and rejuvenated skin.

facial skin gets more attention, while comparing to the rest of the body. Since facial skin is very gentle, it requires mild products for skin exfoliation. Regular use of face scrub helps to get rid of the old skin cells making way for the new skin cells. This makes skin beautiful and youthful, while giving it a lovely glow. When selecting the right facial scrub, it is important that you check the label for ingredients used in its manufacture. If you have a sensitive skin, it is vital to be meticulous when choosing skin care products. Using facial scrubs that contain organic ingredients is

much safer and deserve to be recommended. Skin care products, which are made of organic or natural ingredients, contain natural oil. It can easily mix with our body’s mineral oil. Choose a scrub with fine granules as many a time scrubs with coarse granules can be harsh on the skin. Scrubs enriched with natural ingredients like apricot, neem, walnut are gentle on the skin. While apricot, a natural moisturiser, penetrates easily into the skin to remove deep set impurities, neem is a time tested herb known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Walnut has exfoliating micro-particles and contains organic acids that are astringent and antiseptic.

ANJU MODI Anju Modi belongs to a distinct category of Indian designers, who are diligently striving to revive the long forgotten age old Indian arts, traditions and techniques in their collections. She has been an integral part of the Indian fashion industry since its inception. Having started her label in 1990, she has been a quiet but strong force in the vehement increase of potential, awareness and growth of fashion in India. In an era of fast changing western wear fashion, Anju has not only modernised and developed Indian fabrics and weaving techniques but is also working for the upliftment of the craftsmen and weavers in remote areas of the country. She has displayed her mastery over traditionally inspired designs and Indian fabrics in her magnificent collections, not only in India but also on the international platform. This couturier, who has mesmerised the crème de la crème of the society and fashion world with her exquisite designs, is the favourite of Anup Bhandari, Chief Editor, this month…

How do you see your journey in the world of fashion? I have been in this industry since its nascent years and it has been quite an exciting journey so far. The industry has accepted me, my designs and my passion to revive the age old techniques. It is a part of my life now and I am sure that the years to come are going to be better than before.



Models Trends MAR - APR 2014

Has your passion for age old Indian traditions, arts and designs influenced your children too or they have their own inspiration behind their label? The focus for both the labels is a little different from each other. I focus completely on Indian wear however, AM:PM, the label of my children Ankur and Priyanka is a mix of Indian and western clothing. As far as inspiration is concerned, their label also uses old techniques for printing and embroideries, whereas I have been working towards reviving the age old Indian traditions. So from textile to finishing of the garment, all is traditional.

What is the forte of your label and who are the targeted customers? I have just one label by the name of Anju Modi. My forte is the use of ancient traditions of Indian craftsmanship in a contemporary vocabulary. Well, if I talk about target customers then I would say that these are women in the age group of 25 to 50 years. My designs are quite liked by youngsters, as I love to experiment with creativity and the younger generation connects really well with it. What sea changes do you see in the fashion industry? Well, as it is rightly said the more things change, the more they stay the same. However, we might have changed from the start but we are still inspired by the past. It is a great thing that our glorious past encourages us to revive its merits day after day in our collections. Do you think that nowadays this profession is rather flooded with copycats? Yes, we do see a lot of copies of our designs but the wearer will never get the same quality and value for money. The ‘original’ has its own charm and glamour to flaunt. Isn’t it? How essential are inspiration and imagination for the success of a collection? What are your sources of inspiration? Actually, the inspiration and imagination of a collection have

My Favourites Favourite colour: White. Favourite pastime: Reading. Favourite model: Jyotsna. Favourite outfit: Khadi angrakha that I created for my ‘Mira’ collection. Favourite international fashion brand: DKNY. Favourite fabrics: Khadi and handloom fabrics. Favourite Indian fashion designer: Rohit Bal. Favourite foreign fashion designer: Giorgio Armani.

“This was the first time, during the Delhi Couture Week 2011when I walked the ramp wearing her couture line. It was fantastic. I loved what I was wearing. I loved the way she created that golden and white elaborate gown for me. It was very feminine, opulent yet serene. Shraddha Kapoor, actress

nothing to do with a collection's success. Every collection of mine comes with inspiration but success comes from people’s appreciation for the same. My designs have always been inspired by the core India and its traditions.

Do you think that a fashion label can make anyone look smart and stylish or is it a matter of an inborn sense of fashion? The need for both is important because they balance each other. You need to have a sense of fashion to know how to complete an ensemble.



Models Trends MAR - APR 2014

Favourite fashion tip: Be yourself and don't be a fashion victim. Have your own style.

Tell us about a fashion trend that you would like to change in womenswear? I would like to incorporate more of voluminous long skirts as they are a mixture of Indian and western culture. I believe that Indian women look exceptionally beautiful in them. More and more fashion weeks are happening nowadays. Is this a good trend for designers or is it creating a burden on their creativity to present something out-of-the-box every time? Well, more fashion weeks mean more exposure to our ensembles. Yes, though it does challenge our mind, but there should always be something that drives one forward and push our selves. Also, they open many more markets than the usual ones. Why designer wear is limited to a certain class? According to me, it is a designer's personal choice, whether they want their designs to be accessible to the masses or restrict it to a certain class or audience.

What changes do you observe in Indian fashion and international fashion? Both are evolving with new designs, fabrics, techniques and of course, new markets. Indian fashion has earned accolades on international fashion platform. Our traditions, crafts, arts and designs are becoming popular worldwide, which is really a matter of pride and encouragement for us. Models have been a part and parcel of the fashion industry. How do you see the current modelling world, especially with the inflow of many new faces? It is always good to see new faces, and new talents emerging. The new generation is as focused and dedicated as the older ones. What do you look for in a model for presenting your collection? The basic criteria is of course she should be tall and lean but it also depends on the garments, not everything suits every one. So it is very important to select models according to the type of garments. These days ‘Couture’ is more popular amongst designers than prêt-a-porter. However, often people in India associate a couturier with marriage dresses. What is your stand on it? Yes, people in India do associate couturier with wedding dresses that is because in India weddings are an extravagant affair, nothing is bigger than a wedding here. People don't just spend, they splurge when it comes to weddings; be it the bride, bride-groom or their near and dear ones. So that’s why they associate couture to marriage dresses. I do not see any problem in it. According to you, what is more important, style or fashion? I believe that style is more important as anything that one wears with confidence becomes fashion. What is the use of a hi-fi fashion, if you don’t even know how to maintain grace and coolness?

Fed up with wearing the same clothes everyday? Try Bohemian fashion and create your very own style statement‌



Models Trends MAR - APR 2014


oho fashion has been enthusiastically raved about worldwide by all fashion aficionados. Whether it is Boho garments or fashion accessories, this dressing style is immensely popular amongst celebrities and masses for its flamboyant shades. Bohemian fashion is considered the most convenient method of dressing up. It is also inexpensive as compared to designer or branded apparel. It is all a matter of mixing and matching your simple casual outfits, which you can even buy from flea markets. Use your imagination to create them to be even more presentable, and you have your own style statement. Wearing shades of artistry such as, flower motifs and geometrical designs are also in vogue. Adding these components to your outfit would surely highlight a striking style. However, since bohemian fashion emphasises more on loose fitting clothes, so it is not all about flaunting your curves. These clothes are preferred for cosiness and more artistic means

of dressing up. Instead of skimpy and body fitting dresses, bohemian clothing is more suitable for daily wear. The additional excitement about this style of dressing up is that you can easily match any fashion accessory with these artistic clothes, without thinking about the size, shape or colour of the accessories. More significantly, you are able to innovate and project your own personal individuality without following anybody’s style. Here are a few suggestions to smarten your persona:

Fitting: Many people misapprehend bohemian outfits as ill fitting outfits. If you are wearing bohemian dresses, be assured that they should be of your size. The latest bohemian fashion trend is all about lengthy skirts and tunic tops.

Brilliant colours: Choose a vibrant coloured top on jeans or trousers or a prolonged skirt, capri etc. You can also put on a long dress with intricate embroidery or a free flowing Boho lengthy skirt to enrich your character.


Boho hairstyle is about an unkempt appearance. Bangs are the most popular amongst Boho hairstyles. However, you can try your own hairstyle depending upon the shape of your face.


The bohemian style looks absolutely fabulous and presents a unique style of dressing for women. Instead of wearing matching frocks with tailored lines and stiff fabrics, bohemian clothing allows one to dress comfortably with a touch of rugged whimsy. Currently, the style is characterised by billowy, floaty skirts and dresses usually made from natural materials like linen and cotton, floral patterns, unusual combinations of prints, boots, cropped jackets, sweaters, and roomy bags. The look is loose, layered, organic and earthy. You can use beads to decorate jewellery, purses and belts. Pair a frilly white dress with a gray shawl and blue flats, or a magenta trench coat, green tights, and a traditional yellow belt for a perfect boho look.

Pallavi Mohan, fashion designer

Choose fun printed kurtis and loop a stole on your bag instead of wearing it. Express your boho side through your accessories. Neckpieces, rings with stones in funky colours and fringed tassel bags are perfect for a bohemian look. Wear flats with beads or fabric with braiding in footwear.

Patchwork bags made of cotton or silk can be your fashion statement for any occasion. Use smaller rounded Boho bags for formal events. If you are going for shopping or to college, then go for a larger Boho bag to accommodate all your belongings.

layout can be worn at formal events. If you are donning a deep neck gown, chunky Boho beaded jewellery is perfect to fill up the exposed neckline.


Boho footwear is typically available in neutral shades such as olive green, black, brown and tan. This footwear has flat heels for comfort and ease. As far as style is concerned, Boho covers a broad selection of designs from gladiators to boots and moccasins (a slipper made of deerskin or other soft leather). These boots or shoes may have beads, gems and other embellishments.

A self help guide of make-up for blooming buds…


Shahnaz Husain

hen a young girl applies make-up for the first time, she may end up applying more, thereby overdoing it. For a young girl, it is best to ‘play down’ the make-up. Experimenting is vital as it helps you in knowing what really suits you and also gives you practice in its application. For a young teenager, an over madeup look can really spoil her personality. Young skins look fresh and natural with less make-up. Dark colours, like dark maroon and dark brown can have ageing effects and one may end up looking older. The effort should be to accentuate your features to achieve a natural look. Today’s trends favour the natural look, which should be sheer and translucent with subtle use of foundation and base. The skin should not be covered with foundation. In fact, do not apply the foundation, especially during the day. After cleansing, apply an astringent lotion, wait for a few minutes and then apply powder. Translucent powder, like a baby powder, is good. Avoid applying too much and pay more attention to the oily areas of the face, like nose, forehead and chin. Press the powder all over the face and neck with a slightly damp sponge. This helps it to set and last longer. However, avoid using too much powder around the eyes. Brush off excess powder with cotton wool. Foundation is only used to cover pimples. The best way to do this is to take a little bit of creamy foundation and apply it directly on the pimple or pimple scars. Avoid rubbing or smearing. Instead, pat it into the skin and then apply loose powder on top, blending the powder with the rest of the skin. Powder, in fact, can help to control oil and produce an even colour tone. For oily skin, use pressed powder (powder compact) instead of foundation.

If you want to use foundation at night, choose a water based one. Adding a drop of water will give you a lighter coverage. However, remember to blend well to get a smooth finish. While applying foundation, the main aim is to achieve a natural look. The colour tone should be even. Apply it on the face, forehead, nose and cheeks. Use a moist sponge and spread it evenly. Apply foundation on the eyelids too and blend well. Then apply it on the lower part of the face, on the chin, and on either side, along the jawline. Again spread evenly and blend. Remember the neck too. Apply and spread evenly from the chin downwards. Blending is very important to achieve an even and smooth finish. The entire effect should be natural and should not give a mask-like look. Now apply powder to set the foundation, while brushing off the excess powder with cotton wool. Again, pressed powder can be used, instead of foundation. Use a blusher, but be subtle. The aim should be to give the complexion a healthy glow. Blushers come in powder, cream and even gel forms. Use a powder blusher, as they are much easier to apply. Blushers are best applied with a brush and usually come with their own applicator brushes. Apply on the cheekbones and slightly below it. You can use your finger tips to dot the area with blusher. Then, blend with the brush, outwards and slightly upwards, making sure that there should be no harsh lines or a blotchy effect. Choose a shade that would subtly enhance your natural skin tone. Pink or peach blusher would suit most of the skin tones. Your choice of colour will depend on your skin colour tone. The best effect is achieved with a little experimentation, by mixing colours till you find the shade which is just right for you. For fair skin, try pink and red. Avoid orange if you have sallow (yellowish) skin. For olive complexions, try rose pink or coral. For dark skin, plum, wine or bronze colours are suitable. For the eyes, use a brown eye shadow on the eyelids. Try using the same brown shadow under the lower lashes, instead of an eyeliner or kaajal. Take a darker brown eye shadow and apply it on the upper lid, close to the upper lashes. The entire effect will be natural. If you want to line the eyes, use an eye pencil, rather than an eyeliner. Give your eyes a light touch of mascara. Make sure the lashes do not stick together. Brush them with an eyelash comb.

For the lips, plain gloss is all right during the day. A touch of gloss over a light pink lipstick is also a good combination. Nowadays, coloured gloss is also available. Choose a light colour, like light pink or mauve. Avoid using lip liners and just brush the lips with lipstick, going for shades of pink, from pale pink, to rose or tawny pink. At night, choose rose, coral or bronze, or just stick to pink coloured lipstick. Avoid dark red or maroon lipstick during the night. These make you look much older. Healthy, sleek and shiny hair complement the natural look. Avoid an elaborate hairdo or a ‘set’ look. Long hair can be left loose or a pony tail can be made. In fact, a satin ribbon can be used for coordinating it with the clothes. However, avoid looking overstyled. For short hair, straight layered styles and a broken texture have been in vogue. It seems the new trend will be to have long hair, with curls and waves at the ends. Varied lengths of fringing are also in, but you need to decide what suits you. The nails should not be too long and should have a clean look. Use a clear, light pink, mauve, light brown or beige nail varnish. Lastly, use a light flowery or lemony fragrance and you are ready to flaunt a cool look. Write to for all your beauty queries. Best three entries win a gift hamper each by Shahnaz.

A healthy dose of amla combined with a balanced diet is also an ideal combination for long, shiny hair. Apart from skin troubles, it stops hair from losing their sheen and to become dry and frizzy. Since hair is mostly made of protein, a healthy diet is very essential in maintaining hair health. Amla is a rich source of vitamin C and besides improving the hair, it also enhances immunity.

At night, use a cold cream or moisturiser on your face, if you have dry skin. If you have oily skin, then use an oil-free moisturiser.

Water is the best transporter of all nutrients

Crackled lips and hands

Keep an eye on your diet and nutrition

Lips always seem to lose the battle with winter’s cruelty. Fight back with lip balm. Dry, cracked hands are also unappealing and painful. Use winter cream to nourish the hands, whenever you wash them, as exposure to water actually dehydrates the skin faster.

Protect skin elements



Avoid exposing skin to harsh winter elements such as freezing temperatures and drying cold winds. Cool and frosty air removes moisture from the skin. Use creams

Do not think that the body needs plenty of water, only in summer. Drink lots of water even in winters as internal hydration keeps the skin cells plump and healthy. Water also helps transporting nutrients to skin cells, keeping them nourished.

Cold weather slows down the body’s functions. Eating warm cooked food, drinking lukewarm water, herbs, spice tea and moderate daily exercise can help in improving the circulation, digestion and elimination of wastage and toxins from the body, while keeping the skin healthy and clear. Consume some antioxidant supplements like Vitamin B, C, and E, along with zinc and magnesium.

Foods having strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties are apple, watermelon, melon, strawberries, avocado, oranges, banana, kiwi, grapes, pomegranate, plums, oregano, parsley, coriander, tomato, carrot, peppers, radish, beans, cabbage, broccoli, garlic, cauliflower, spinach, wholemeal cereals, barley, oats, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. These are important elements for a strong immune system and amazing sources of minerals and essential vitamins. Moreover, these protect the skin, prevent premature ageing, and help fighting acne and wrinkles.

His unique and exclusive designs are an epitome of style, creativity and innovation. With the quality and craftsmanship of typical Italian made goods, Salvatore Ferragamo will forever be a source of inspiration for fashionistas‌


great innovator in style and fashion, especially in footwear design, Italian fashion designer Salvatore Ferragamo is known for inventing new forms, which were based on functional needs to enhance one’s appearance. He was renowned for his knowledge of how the human feet operate and was against pointed shoes. The designer created more than 20,000 styles and registered 350 patents during his career, including the platform sole in 1938. Ferragamo’s inventions,

such as invisible sandal, moulded arch, steel arch support, wedge heels, platform soles, cage heel and the seashell sole changed the history of footwear and are considered as the hallmark of an epoch. He always had a great passion for shoes. He sought inspiration from art and architecture for his shoes, and his design drawings included precise models for the construction of each pair. After studying shoemaking for a year, Ferragamo opened a small store in his parents home. However, his journey to fame started in 1914, when he immigrated to America to live with one of his brothers, who was a worker in a cowboy boots making factory. He initially opened a shop for repair and

He wanted to find out the reason as to why his shoes were pleasing to the eyes but hurt the foot. Following this thought, he went on to study anatomy at University of Southern California. In 1927, he retuned to his country Italy after thirteen years and settled in Florence. In 1938, he opened the ‘Salvatore Ferragamo’ single brand directly operated stores (DOS) in Florence and Rome in Italy and in London, UK. He started designing fashion shoes for the most wealthy and most powerful women of the century. Ferragamo continued to be a favourite shoe designer of Hollywood celebrities such as Lillian Gish, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, and Marlene Dietrich for his unique hand-made footwear. His most famous shoe creations were the ruby slippers ‘Dorothy’, which were worn in movie The Wizard of Oz. His ‘invisible shoes’, made with transparent nylon thread uppers, won him the Neiman Marcus Prize in 1947. In 1960, Salvatore Ferragamo died but his name lives on as an international luxury goods manufacturing company. Since his death, this company has been guided and controlled by his wife Wanda and their six children. In 1965, the Salvatore Ferragamo Group launched the first leather goods and ready-to-wear ladies wear collections. Since then,
