Photographs: Shoeb Mashadi |Styling: Daniel Franklin
Gatecrashing shoots are fun, but being invited to cover a shoot exclusively is even better and that’s just what happened to us last month when we hit up the Juice magazine photo shoot in Mumbai!
We went behind the scenes to check out the August issue, which was all about real women and their style. Our fab Country Manager and fashionista Kriti Tula grabbed stylist Daniel Franklin for a quick Q&A about his ideas for the shoot, his personal style and if he’s all about the runway, or a high street guy at heart?
Hey Daniel! What are you wearing today and what would you say your style is all about?
I am wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo coat and a Disney t-shirt. My personal style depends on my mood, I am very conscious of how I dress in the morning and I factor in things like my mood, my POA for the day, and the weather.
Any monsoon survival tips you want to share with us?
Don’t wear flip-flops unless you want yucky muck splatters all over your back, or just don’t wear flip-flops outside the house. Period.
What’s your favorite label this Summer?
Not big on labels but my favorite piece for the summer is the slogan t-shirt, I’ve seen some really cool ones this season.
Tell us a little about this photo shoot we are at, it looks amazing!
This shoot is for our August issue. The issue is our ‘Real fashion for Real women issue’ so we are shooting 7 women representing a spectrum of Indian shapes and colours to break the fashion myths (do’s and don’t’s) that they have always been told.
What’s new at Juice mag?
Cant really talk about it just yet, but from what I’ve seen it’s gonna be spectacular!
OK then, how about some quick fire questions instead?!
1. Style or Substance? Don’t see why you cant have both.
2. Runway or High street? Who we kidding?..Runway
3. What are the strangest things we’re likely to find in your closet? Kimono, kilt, lungi’s, breeches.. take your pick! Someone will find it strange, I’m sure.
4. Sweatpants or skinny jeans? Skinny jeans
5. Beach holiday or city breaks? City break, or better still, it would be a mountain trek.
