Around town, another shoot with creative direction and styling by Bridelan. Bridelan and I both have roots in Kolkata and a strong fondness for the city. My parents were born and raised in the city, although their stories imply that it was a very different place. I still remember going to visit my relatives and taking these yellow ambassador cabs everywhere.
The first few steps from the train station were always in a yellow ambassador cab going across the bridge from the train station to the downtown of the city. Which is why the Howrah bridge as an iconic symbol of Kolkata so we has to be featured in the background of this fashion shoot around town.
Poised on the banks of the Hoogly river our model imitated the structure of the triangulated bridge. The colors in her jewels and her golden Lehenga by Raw Mango are a nod to the fact that the bridge is one of the jewels of the state and region.
