I am taken with everything in this Sanjay Garg lookbook by photographer Prarthna Singh. The collection marks the debut of the eponymous signature line by the Raw Mango designer, a stunning array of richly coloured garments in Varanasi kadwa brocade with vibrant detailing. Shot by Prarthna on the rooftop of Angoori Badi, Sanjay Garg’s studio in Delhi’s Chhatarpur, a 14 foot chanderi backdrop blurs a jharokha and thick foliage to lend a dreamy, watercolour feel to the images.
Prarthna explains, “The colours are so striking, that the backdrop had to make them pop. The idea was to create images that almost mimicked Mughal miniatures and at the same time were clean and simple.”
A brief effectively and magnificently met.
