Lakmé, India’s first indigenous cosmetics brand with wide success was launched in 1952 by Mr. JRD Tata, a Parsi visionary. Lakmé fashion week is the largest, bi-annual Indian fashion event organized in Mumbai. The chaotic backstage atmosphere creates a massive frenzy especially when A-list actors, musicians, supermodels and a host of behind the scenes workers are present. A fashion show is a whole lot of unknowns and even though designers have been preparing for months in advance, there are always last-minute fixes and upsets. There is an army of people, working day and night to make sure the show goes off without a hitch. It takes months and months of preparation and tons of hard work to showcase such an event. I was given the opportunity to document backstage scenes of the largest fashion event for a few seasons. Despite the glam factor, fashion shows are one of the most demanding and expensive events to produce where every detail, large and small, is meticulously handled.
