MATADOR

Mani K. Jassal is a phenomenal designer. The moment I stepped into her showroom I was instantly struck by how dedicated she is to her craft. When you enter her space you are acutely aware of her organic process, where samples impeccably displayed live alongside dress forms, swatches of fabric and mutually adored Alexander McQueen coffee table books featuring his beloved Savage Beauty collection. 

After wanting to photograph her work for over a year now I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with her alongside Rav B. and Kaashni Brar, the hair and makeup experts at Rav B. Beauty Concepts. For this editorial we mixed MKJ's classic line with gorgeous new pieces from the Darkmoon collection.

Gagan Weds Balkar. Colourful Sikh Ceremony.

Sometimes we need colour to communicate the spirit and vivacity of life which minimalism often omits. I loved capturing these colour-filled images as they were a departure from what I normally photograph. When Gagan asked me to shoot her wedding this past summer I was thrilled to be working with her once again. She is one half of the über talented design team Kundan Paaras

I adored so many things about this wedding it's difficult to list them all.
