I have never been into professional modelling and being a camera-shy person I always preferred being the one doing makeup on my face or others’. However, I accidentally got to model for my friend’s boutique- Harika Studio.
My friend from work, Satya’s wife Harika has her own costume design studio and they needed a make-up artist for the day and I was approached. However, the model didn’t show up for the day and I decided to volunteer!
I had an amazing time trying out Harika’s various creations. I got to doll-up and try various costumes and different looks. The best thing about the clothes was that they were extremely light-weight and I didn’t have a tough time trying multiple clothes for the shoot. I hate trying clothes even when I’m shopping. Somehow I know my cloth size and I just go with it.
Satya made me very comfortable while shooting and Harika was the confidence-booster helping me with the poses. She herself could be a model really!
The detailed work on each of these clothes is done by Harika Studio’s in-house artisans who hail from Bengal. They have an amazing bridal collection and I may just consider picking something from their closet for my “big day” someday!
