One of the greatest things our job has given us is the opportunity to not only be free-spirited writers, individuals and amazing friends, but the fact that we can actually love our jobs every day is kinda pretty freakin‘ awesome. While nothing is ever perfect, our jobs sometimes have us working crazy hours, accepting a ton of Google Calendar invites, going for events and so on. However, for the fashion team, there are certain months in the year that we have a ton mixed feelings about… It’s called Fashion Week—call it our IPL season if you may.
It’s long, tiring, hectic, stressful, rewarding, educational, and definitely worthwhile. But to survive and come out as champions at the end can be both challenging and hard. While we do get to meet and talk to some of the best designers in the biz, drool over the newest pieces on the runway, it isn’t too hard to fall flat on our faces (fashionably, of course) by the end of day 1 itself. Exhibit A…
So, how do we survive? Well, let’s just say that there’s much needed self-prep (apart from the actual work prep) that gets us in the right mood, spirit and obviously, the outfit! Scroll down to check out the team and our prep and pro tips!
Rashmi Bhosale—The true DIY diva & sunshine girl.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! It’s essential, especially when the venue is open air. Also, wearing comfy shoes is a must! This I have learnt from my mistakes.
Prashansa Daniell—Loves pretty flowers as much as her need to be equipped with a packet of hair ties.
Always carry some food in a little bag (dry fruits, nuts, candy bars etc) ’cause running between covering runway shows and back stage, doing celebrity interviews etc you might forget/not have time to eat. So, the little food that you carry could be your saviour on a bad day!
