Life | Snapshots at Lakmé Fashion Week W/F 2016

Covering Lakmé Fashion Week for the past few years has made it feel like second nature for Style File, yet it manages to feel fresh every time I step into the marble floored venue. It isn't only the clothing collections or the starry showstoppers that are responsible for this feeling, it's the atmosphere of that coveted week. So come those heady five days and instead of a morning cuppa, I'm watching a morning ramp walk. My trusty leggings and sneakers are replaced with a more fashion week-worthy wardrobe.

Routine is a long-forgotten dream and the week becomes a blur of heightened activity and excitement. No territory is left uncharted - from the buzzing backstage area to the celebrity vanity rooms. Once the furore of fashion week died down and I finally went through my camera roll; it gave me a peek into those busy moments. These included celebrity showstoppers, long hours spent shooting and of course, immense amounts of style, which I'm sharing with you today.
