BE­HIND THE GLOSS

THE CELEBS’ USHER

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - Pr­erna Gauba

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!
