This season the camera explored the idea of girl’s animus amid a stark cultural & societal drift. This is a zone existing between reality and real self, where expressions have no bounds. This fashion shoot Rustic by storm, encapsulates major aspects of feminine introspection. In the soul of seeking that ideal space, the team of photographer, creative & storywriters journeyed to interior village in order to explore the authenticity and earthen flavor of this look. What they found was away from expectations!!! Fashion shoot rustic by storm

Village hygiene is yet another poles apart amendment for her. This if we see through her, its traditions unleashing her inner discomfort. Somewhere this concept is in tandem with “Nature deficit disorder” which roots down to the addiction of very many modern day lifestyle suppliments. So many of us experience the lack of nature self exposure. Fashion shoot rustic by storm

She’s into her own world wherein there’s no need to follow protocols or to behave in a rulebook manner. She is free, expressive & happy in her own skin amid an almost alien atmosphere . Fashion shoot rustic by storm

Continuing the daily routine she gets to cook in new home since a girl is a presumed cook by birth. Preparing her first meal, she’s holding an balancing feel of her present & past. Fashion shoot rustic by storm

Though she’s trying to adjust into the stark different atmosphere, but she’s less bothered about the shift and more about beholding her inner equilibrium. Fashion shoot rustic by storm

Not many of us know but ‘muh dikhai’ is a post marriage first common integrative gathering for a bride. There she’s not listening to the music of the ceremony, rather she’s just too tuned up in her own rhythm. Wearing headphones & completely zoned out!! Fashion shoot rustic by storm

This look is one of the favorites of Aman Mathur as he always wanted to work with the unbounded feminine emotions. This look’s beauty, uniqueness & more than that strength, is something he has long admired & respect. Fashion shoot rustic by storm

Respecting traditions & respecting one’s real self are equally essential. We have tried to project the outburst of her inner hidden self image on the abrupt happenings around. This is yet another expression state, wherein she’s so lost in herself that surroundings are mere ecosystem to survive. Fashion shoot rustic by storm“THE HAMAAM”

Acceptance is the primitive thing that a person seeks for. Acceptance by people, society, fashion industry, creative think-tanks & what not!!

But this process becomes a bit complicated once cultural difference plays its role. So what to do now? Change or conceal?

Where she decided to go with the flow. Be what she actually is and show what she really feels & believes in. Fashion shoot rustic by storm

Though such things leave people around scandalized, thinking about the continuum of right & wrong. Which actually can never be judged as it’s completely – subjective!! Fashion shoot rustic by storm

But, she never fails to express – the poise, sophistication & belonging towards the complete attire, harnessing the entire look!!

This look is inspired by a woman’s inner conflict towards a hustle between tradition & modernization wherein she projects herself with a tomorrow oriented attitude in a closed traditional atmosphere. Fashion shoot rustic by storm

In this look the ensemble is casting a spell of mesmerizing choreography of colors, design and ease. With pushy silhouette, royal textures, subtle colors and expressive model, the designer has placed class in the shoot!! Fashion shoot rustic by storm

Being the last look of the shoot sequence is completely projecting passion, audacity, demonstration and fully dressed attitude & the attire.
