BEHIND THE GLOSS
THE CELEBS’ USHER
It was Nekita Narang’s first time at India Couture Week, and she has been working hard behind the scenes, helping usher the daily guests to their seats and making sure they are at ease. Here’s the 20-year-old’s experience:
How did you land up at couture week?
I’m a student of fashion styling and image design and have been hired as a volunteer by Fashion Design Council of India. I got here because of my college.
What are the challenges you face as an usher?
The experience we get when we come here is great. I aspire to be a part of this industry and seeing the way the couture week works is such a big inspiration. I have had all kinds of experience. There are some guests who refuse to listen.
Sometimes, even after reminders, they don’t switch off their camera flash so it becomes a little hard for us.
The most exciting and the toughest thing about the job?
The best part about being at couture week is the overall experience and all the learning. Seeing how each designer works on his or her collection with so much detailing and hard work is something we don’t get to know when we just come to see the show as a guest. The tough thing is, sometimes it gets really tiring due to the work. But, it’s just a part of our job!
