Upstream Colour ⛰️
TIE-DYE, DIP-DYE, SPLATTER DYE & HAND EMBROIDERY
We took a trip to Lachung & Yumthang Valley in North Sikkim through this collection. Playing around with tie-dye, dip dye, splatter dye and hand embroidery to best represent the beauty of the valley.
The lookbook was extra special too. We've been patiently waiting to create something special with Tenzing for a long time after working on little things here and there with tender admiration. Casting, styling and producing over whatsapp, with three cartons, a suitcase and a force of energy sent to the hills.
Tenzing wanted to make sure that the team for this shoot were folks who hail from the hill region and that’s exactly what we did! The models are from Kalimpong, Karma, our hair & makeup artist has roots in West Sikkim, and so was our assistant photographer. It’s a rare thing to be able to make teams like this happen and we think it shows in the magic of the final images.
Big Love To,
The photographer - Tenzing Dakpa
HMU - Karma Choezom
Models - Sachit Gurung & Tanya Bose
Photo Assistant - Kunga Tashi
