The inspiration behind this shoot was to honour my love for colours, prints and clashes. Being the first shoot I styled, I turned to the classics. The Who’s, Baba O’Riley and My Generation, The Clash’s Rock the Casbah and Iggy pop’s Lust for Life and The Passenger laid the foundation for the message of this shoot – fun, independence and a disregard for other’s judgments. (click on any of the images to view them as a slide show)

Instinct leads to the craving of familiarity. Living independently for the first time leads to the desire for elements of assurance. With all the uncertainty surrounding a new environment, there is certainty to be found in muted tones but playing with the unexpected gives liberation.

Contrast tends to be a scary prospect, but in reality, there are no rules and balance is subjective and arbitrary. If words are the expression of one’s thoughts than colours can express emotions.

Fashion can be a personal, living mood board. Each separate piece representative of a feeling. When it becomes an outfit and is viewed as a whole, a message, coherent or not, is communicated.
