At first glance, the latest set of photos from Mumbai-based photographer Prarthna Singh showcases everyday fashion. But what it really aims to do is stir viewers’ awareness of their relationship to consumerism and fast fashion.
A trend that came into vogue at the end of the 20th century, fast fashion refers to a business model based on reproducing the trend of high fashion catwalks and design and producing them at a lower cost. Offering a range of seasonal and trendy designs, the clothes, made from cheaper raw materials, end up producing a lot of waste because they are difficult to reuse or recycle.
In the photo series, which shows 10 pieces of black and white clothing, Singh attempts to construct multiple narratives of utility, waste and consumption. In an email interaction, she spoke about the series in detail.
Why did you choose to do the photo series?
Sustainability in fashion, especially questions about how clothes are made and what their afterlife looks like, has been something I’ve been thinking about for a while. When The Refashion Hub approached me to create a series of images dealing with fast fashion, their intention was immediately apparent and I was happy to be able to contribute. This opportunity seemed like the right time to explore the subject.

Why is the series of photos in black and white? What do you intend to represent through the images?
As I explored how I might approach the subject, I found myself drawn to the idea of answering it from a very personal space. I do not claim to be an expert in the field of fashion sustainability but it is a subject that touches us inadvertently. I wondered how someone like me could react to visual narratives on a subject as complex as this. The choice to make black and white images of the clothes in my environment allowed me to communicate a moment of quiet reflection that could perhaps inspire a questioning of the impact of the way we consume fashion. Pictures can also be enjoyed on their own – black and white vignettes of everyday life.
The photo series includes 10 items of clothing. (Photo by Prarthna Singh, PR document)
You have chosen 10 items of clothing for the photo series; what is the significance of these clothes?
The images I made for this series are of the clothes that make up my immediate daily environment – a favorite pair of shorts to dry; a pile of clothes waiting to be recycled; my partner’s sports kit back from the cleaners, a white blouse on a hanger. The images are a moment of tranquility, to watch what goes unnoticed.
Is it time to rethink fashion rather than indulging in uncontrolled consumption?
Absolutely. Mindless consumption has brought us to where we are today and it is imperative that we are aware of our choices regarding – though certainly not limited to – clothing. I think it’s important to think about what we consider valuable or ambitious. Consumption has a cost. It’s time to explore holistic alternatives that take more account of the earth’s resources.
The fashion industry accounts for up to 10% of global pollution, according to a study published in Nature Reviews Earth & Environment. (Photo by Prarthna Singh, PR document)
Do you recycle clothes?
I believe in wearing clothes multiple times and appreciate clothes as a tool of expression rather than a seasonal trend. I wouldn’t claim to be the main voice of slow and sustainable fashion, but I appreciate carefully designed pieces that can be enjoyed for a long time.
On a personal level, what steps are you taking / planning to take to reduce wasted clothing?
These are all small steps. I try to support friends with independent labels and I like to have my neighborhood tailor’s weird outfit made. It is quite heartwarming to see the growing popularity of thrift stores and clothing exchanges on Instagram. Second-hand shopping is becoming more and more normal and people are having fun with it. Fashion is a joyful medium and the road to making the consumer sector sustainable can attest to that.

The look is as dapper as it gets. It will also pass safely as an anti-corona look given the way its nose and mouth are perfectly covered!

Rimi Sen is considering a comeback but she doesn’t desperately need to work. “If I make a comeback today, I will do it out of interest and for a memorable experience that I did not have at the time,” says the actor who chose to retire after being part of several blockbuster films in the early 2000s.
Rimi sat down for a candid chat with indianexpress.com, where she watched Bollywood as it was, explained why she thought she hadn’t struggled enough and explained how she is revisiting her films today. hui.
What kept you apart for 10 years?
I never wanted attention or liked glamor. I’m a simple person and didn’t always want to be in front of the camera. At school, too, no one knew my name. I was like a rear advisor. I just feel uncomfortable with the attention.
But you have to be visible today. Are you comfortable in the age of social media?
This time, I was not mature. I was young, aggressive, I worked a lot and I went with the flow. I was there only for the money. It was a very mechanical thing for me. I wasn’t even a graduate so it was difficult for me to find a job. All I knew was acting and that profession sort of chose me.
Rimi Sen made a special appearance in Dhoom and Dhoom 2.
You’ve worked with the biggest movie stars like Hungama, Baghban, Dhoom, Phir Hera Pheri and Golmaal. Did these films give you what you expected or deserved?
I feel like I didn’t even deserve what I got. I did a lot of music videos. I did an advertisement with Aamir Khan. Then I signed Hungama. So it was lucky for me. But I only got comedy movies. I did Dhoom, Phir Hera Pheri, Hungama, Golmaal and I had the furniture role in all of them. This time around, the film industry was dominated by men. Today, content is the hero. Back then, the hero was the only hero! OTT platforms have changed that today.
When I left the industry, amazing directors like Sriram Raghavan, Shoojit Sircar, Neeraj Pandey, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Dibakar Banerjee were starting. I did movies like Johnny Gaddaar and Shagird with some of them, but those kinds of movies weren’t working at the box office at the time. So that option finally closed for me. I think if I had fought for 3-4 more years I could have done it. My only fault is that I did not wait and did not agree to fight. If I had done that, I would have had to work with more directors and the script would have changed. Now when I watch my movies after 10 years, do I realize what I have achieved? Nothing.
You mean if you had started today things would have been different?
Nowadays, heroines worked until 33 years old, then their careers were over. All they got after that were secondary roles. Even I believed that once I was over 30, I would be pushed past the characters. I never felt that one day we would have a scenario where we would have performances like Shefali Shah in Delhi Crime or Vidya Balan in Kahaani. If I could have foreseen this, I might never have stopped. In our day there was nothing called a script. The director said the script was on my mind.
In almost two decades, what has changed in the industry?
First of all, the content. It used to be like a money making business. Today we educate our audience. Take Pink or any Raju Hirani movie. They are not preachers, but there is a message. Now there is no more entertainment. It also goes in the area of sensitivity. Today there is work for everyone. Today’s filmmakers don’t care about business or the 100 crore audience, they have become fearless.
You were part of Horn Ok Pleassss, which started MeToo in India. What memories do you have of this film?
I signed this movie because I thought Nana Patekar is there, so it will be a good movie. It was just an opportunity for me, even though it was a comedy movie. The atmosphere on the sets was correct. Unfortunately, they couldn’t release the movie for some reason.
Bigg Boss was a turning point in your career. How has it changed you?
When I signed on for this show, I thought it was a useless show where everyone is screaming and fighting over coffee for three months. I had a lot of money, so I agreed to do it. It was like a paid vacation. But when I walked into this house, I realized the way they are playing with your psychology. It is not shown to anyone. All you see are stains and people denigrating themselves. I don’t fight because it’s not a solution for me. Plus, when they frustrate you with 3 p.m. chores, with dietary restrictions, anyone’s bad side is unleashed. It was like rehab for me, where all I had to do was meditate and wash the utensils. This show really helps to discover you. Bigg Boss gave me maturity.
Rimi Sen was part of Bigg Boss 9 (2015).
Salman pushed you to be your best all the time.
The creators told him that they had invested so much in me and that I was ruining everything. I’m not giving any documents, I’m calm, so he should do something. That’s why Salman kept motivating me but he knew the kind of person I am. Within three months, I barely spoke to him for 30 minutes and that too was just jokes. In addition, there were such experienced actors that I admired. I continued to smile at them.
If you met the younger version of yourself, what advice would you give them?
I would tell him to fight and support a little more. Also to better manage people. Previously I was way too honest and on the face. The producers were reluctant to call me for interviews because they were afraid of what I was going to say. I’m still honest, but I’m better today.
Sara Ali Khan surely knows how to tease her fans in India, who barely manage the scorching weather. The actor is on vacation in Kashmir with his brother Ibrahim Ali Khan and a close friend, and their photos in the snow will make you desperate for winters.
Sara took to Instagram on Saturday to post some photos of Apharwat Peak, Gulmarg and captioned them, writing, “The Frozen Chosen Ones.” While one photo shows Sara posing sitting alone in a snowmobile, the other photo shows her with Ibrahim. As Sara elegantly poses for the camera, Ibrahim appears to be lost in thought as he looks down while being clicked.

On the job front, Sara Ali Khan will next be seen in Aanand L Rai’s romantic drama Atrangi Re opposite Dhanush. The film, due for release at the end of this year, also stars Akshay Kumar in a special appearance. Filming for Atrangi Re ended last month.
