Sharing herewith one of my favourite from our shoot for Silkalaya a long time back, maybe around 2007. The photo was efficiently clicked by Kamal Barman at his Guwahati studio and the makeup by his very talented sister Kalyani Barman. The wardrobe is of course by the Silkalaya. The photos were for a very long time on their banners, glow sign boards and tags. The Silkalaya brand has truly been able to revive the Assamese traditional clothing in an artistic and contemporary way. I'm always in love with their clothing and specifically the length and width of it. The shoot was first proposed to me but gradually then they thought of including Jayanta too and the final result came to be so compellingly 'Made for Each Other' type. Both their clothing for women and men came into the right use and display. Today, when I particularly look at this photo, I'm in love with those naturally beautiful curls of Jayanta and his entire look that is been portrayed so stunningly. The wooden neckpiece he is wearing is something I bought from a trade fair before my wedding. That was a time I was so much particular about my accessories and keep it safe for long. And now, half of my things where do I store, I just don't remember. Maybe because due to too much of inclusions of works and responsibilities in my personal and professional spheres. Old photos like this remind me that, no matter what, self-care and self-pamper are very essential and after that, the rest follows automatically. So, gearing up to rejuvenate with no complaints. Gradually the world will see a new 'ME'.
