Aneeth Arora and Kallol Datta get a GRAND RECEPTION at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. Bazaar goes BEHIND THE SCENES with the two.
SNIP & TUCK
Kallol adjusts one of his creations during the model fittings on Day 2, maintaining “what my label has always been known for—clothes with an emotional connect”.
Aneeth admires the Berlin street style of a passer-by, captured in her favourite camera, the Canon EOS 550D.
MODELS IN WAITING
For Aneeth’s show it was all about interaction—“i told the models to be themselves, interact with the audience, and play with the clothes,” she says.
MAKING THE CUT
Kallol always carries a fan in his luggage, whenever he travels: “I get hot when I am under stress, and a fan keeps me cool under pressure,” he says.
CCT After preliminary castings in India, Aneeth and
Kallol step off a 15-hour flight straight into secondary model
castings in Berlin.
A makeup artist painstakingly draws pink hearts on all the models’ faces for Aneeth’s presentation.
The designers rock the city, posing for the customary touristy pics at Alexanderplatz in central Berlin.
SRIKE A POSE
Models pose on Day 4 on white squares at a pyramidal set-up planned by Kallol. He wanted to keep the audience’s attention with what he calls a static “domino effect”.
