I was really fortunate to be invited to Estelle’s Mickey In The Van new collection preview last Monday.
I came to know Estelle purely by chance as I walked into her shop last year and fell in love with the dresses she designed. Her designs actually fit so well that someone once asked if I custom-made them!
It was honestly more of an art performance than a fashion show.
Estelle dressed and undressed the model, Rona right in front of us; letting us have a glimpse to see how she puts an entire outfit together.
Starting with the bare form of just a bra and an underwear, Estelle layers and accessories; building a look until it is done.
All the stunning head pieces in the show are designed and made by her and you can actually hear the audience go ‘wow’ every time you think she is done with a look but she takes out a sash or a pair of earrings and transforms it even more.
And here are my top three favourite looks:
When she took this dress out, the lady next to me and myself went oh my god at the same time.
Even more so when she completed the entire ensemble.
This piece will definitely have a place in my wardrobe.
I really enjoyed myself that night and definitely gained an interest in Fashion Photography!
Fashion shoot anyone?
