I get a call from one of my friend in the fashion world. She asked if I am available for a Indian Fashion event. As a photographer who is in love with diversity, I said “Absolutely YES”
As a briefing I just heard it is a launch of AFL (Australian Football League) themed Indian Wear. AFL Bollywood Style. At the beginning I could not understand the theme and the event. But then every kind of talent started to show up; make-up, modelling, designer, food. 🙂
The fashion label is Vitamin and designer is Sonalika Pradhan. Her designs are spectacular. Revolutinary looks which have both Indian detail and vibrance, and contemporary silhouettes.
It was an eye opener night for me. I realised that I should give more attention to Indian Style Modern fashion. And I will.
I always love photography and photographing events. Because in each event I only don’t create photographs. I have the chance of meeting extraordinary people and I make new friends with them.
We had the chance to meet and talk with Sonalika and her handsome Bollywood actor husband Vishwajeet Pradhan. They are such a lovely couple. It was so nice to know them.
By the way the event was at the Thornbury Theatre which was built in 1920’s. Another iconic herritage venue in Melbourne.
