I have been sitting here for a while trying to express in words how I feel being picked to assist backstage with Val Garland for ISSA Spring Summer 2016 collection.
I can honestly say I am speechless – which is rare for me!
After completing the four month intense course with Val Garland School of Make-up during the summer months which during that time I got to submit briefs set by i-D magazine ( where I was shortlisted for my work), Preen, Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Williamson and NARS. At the end of the course I could put my name down to be picked to work backstage with Val Garland on the ISSA show at London Fashion Week.
You can watch a behind the scenes video with Val Garland here.
Here I am working backstage. A glimpse of what it is like:
The model I created the look on was the gorgeous inside and out Bhumika Arora of Elite Model Agency. Bhumika has also being voted the first Indian model to have international impact since the famous Lakshmi Menon within the fashion industry and is fueling a buzz about her.
