From Urban Backtrack at Art Walk 2009

Well, it was a great experience to be part of this whole ArtWalk thing.. Imagine two guys trying thier luck out in Stencils and Graffiti at a bloody fashion show?? Well it was quite an experience for me and DRG to be at the practices trying to explain a street art concept to a bunch of models and the organizers. Luckily we got Randu on board who was our link between the female models and dresses...:)

It was quite an exhelarating few weeks, going off to check out the rehersals, missing out on all the design sessions leaving DRG and Randu to work..and pulling off a hasty wardrobe malfunction in the night just a day before the show.. The times were tense but at the end of the day it all boiled downed to few minutes of absolute sensation (at least thats what i felt) on the ArtWalk ramps with four awesome young models....

Anyways apart from the After Party that no one could get in...everything went well..A big thank you goes out to everyone who helped including the organizers, the supportive models and even Foxhound and Sokka who were there with very encouraging comments about the whole thing just when they realized that the Rs1500 they spent was to see a bunch of empty bicycle tires and some worn out t-shirts...:D Wanna be Fashion they say!

Also kudos to friends from the bloggersphere who tweeted and re-tweeted about how expensive the tickets were...!!

 At least Foxhound managed to grab some snaps...

  1. Yes the chicks with cans dangling around them with bicycle tires on their head were quite the spectacle.

    Sokka said it best when he said "Machang... this is kinda Bo(yawn)ring..."

    Seriously I was pretty offended with the non existent after party. Apparently you're supposed to turn up after the party is over...

    And let's not mention the equally priced 1,500 STANDING tickets.

    But other than that, jolly good show!
