LACONIC 2019 SHOW DIRECTOR SHAKIR SHAIKH

— JASMEEN DUGAL

Credited for quality work and dedication since a decade, Shakir Shaikh is an acclaimed show director in Fashion with a voracious appetite for creativity, which has bagged him shows with high-rollers. In conversation with the Show Director of Laconic 2019 — the inaugural show of Fashion Design Council Of Rajasthan.

 

"It is a great beginning of an association with The Fashion Design Council Of Rajasthan. I believe it's a charitable organisation where The FDCR will not use funds raised for its own benefit but for the Rajasthan fashion fraternity, fashion education and on upholding art, craft and culture by giving musicians and artisans a platform. Their inaugural show Laconic 2019 is a great initiative, bringing national designers to showcase in Rajasthan. It has a great line-up of designers and I'm looking forward to working with them and directing their shows, with live music!

 

My role is to choreograph and direct runway shows, including the execution of each showing with value adds so that each one stands out as unique. My favourite moments in directing shows is initial conversations with each designer and going through their moodboard. Each designer has a different inspiration, steeped in travel or the experience of life or an incident that shaped them or maybe a vision; eventually I perceive the designers' mindset. It is an interactive process and I'm always excited to start communication; it is a lot like meeting a stranger on holiday! And I get immense pleasure when the designer comes to me after the showcase and hugs me for presenting his or her vision on the catwalk!!"
