Get behind the scenes of fashion shoot for an intimate, on-location look with Shilpa Ahuja as she talks about what we do here and our blog’s credo!
Behind the Scenes Video: On Location for a Summer Fashion Shoot
Hey gorgeous! To take you with us on location, we shot a behind the scenes vid while doing the fashion photography of our latest summer shoot. The fashion photo-shoot for the look will be releasing soon, but while you wait for it, check out this video of me posing! Also: I talk about my work, a bit about the philosophy behind ShilpaAhuja.com and what I think personal style is!
Here’s the transcript:
“Hi! I am Shilpa Ahuja and today we’re shooting for a casual look. The mood of this shoot is tropical, natural, with a lot of trees, flowers, butterflies. Very zen! We’re in Auroville, ten minutes away from Pondicherry, in south of India.
ShilpaAhuja.com is all about inspiring confidence through fashion and lifestyle. I believe that fashion is for everyone, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, skin color and body type. That everyone has the right to style without being judged.
Fashion trends are not meant to make you spend a lot. They just give you a lot of options to experiment with, so that you can spend wisely and choose what suits you best.
I don’t think of myself as a fashion influencer. I am just a style BFF for my readers. Our team does a lot of analysis of runway fashion and we give our own opinion from a fashion outsider’s perspective so that we can help you create your own personal style. For me, personal style is what makes you feel your best, chicest and most confident self. It helps you be happy.”
Who is a Style BFF?
Don’t we all have that one friend in our lives (or at least we need that friend) who gives us honest opinions on our fashion, who we wanna take shopping with us because she always knows what would suit us best, and who we always call for fashion emergencies (what should I wear to meet this new guy?)! Well, that’s what we at ShilpaAhuja.com want to become for you all – your style BFFs. So think of SlubTeam as your style confidantes. We want you to feel your more beautiful self. We don’t want to make choices for you, we don’t want to force any opinion on you. But we want that you should always feel confident about whatever you love to wear. And we love your opinions, too!
So, my angels, I hope you had as much fun watching our behind the scenes video as we had shooting and editing it. Should we make more such behind the scenes vids? Let us know your thoughts @shilpa1ahuja or by commenting on the video. Please do like and share our video. To see more, subscribe to our YouTube channel!

But Shilpa believes that with the changing role of women in the society, fashion has changed, too.
