Doling out fashion tips, stylist Subhash Karthik says, “Dress up in what you feel comfortable. Experiment with lots of available hues without changing the patterns. This is the only formula to look good. Anyone can make a fashion statement by strictly adhering to the formula.”
A fashion designer graduated from NIFT, Karthik has come a long way through in helming models and actors. Karthik, who is a personal stylist for actors like Sundeep Kishan and Manchu Manoj, is in the city to choreograph contestants for the Miss Vijayawada 2015 beauty pageant.
In a chat with The Hans India, Karthik says, “I am waiting for the release of Sundeep Kishan’s new film ‘Tiger’ in which he will be shown as a mass hero with some decent costumes. His style in this film is based on the attitude of the character and the personality of a protagonist. I keep in mind the trend, comfort zones of the actor and his capabilities of carrying out an outfit before styling.”
When asked about how he got into the show business, Karthik says, “I started off as an assistant for Imran Khan for ‘I am She’ beauty pageant where I learnt the tricks of styling. I trained about 150 models in a span of 8 years. Thereafter, I ventured into Tollywood and worked for actor Varun Sandesh’s movie. Later, I teamed up with Manoj for ‘Potugadu’, ‘Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda’ and ‘Current Theega’. My list of movies included ‘Joru’ and ‘Ra Ra Krishnayya’. I also got the opportunity to work with ace director Ram Gopal Varma for his film ‘365 Days’.”
Expressing his views on the talent of girls taking part in the Miss Vijayawada beauty pageant, he says, “Girls of Vijayawada are no more shy and hesitant like before. They have enough talent to compete with models on par with the girls of major metros sans grooming. They are new to the western tune of clothing and showing off.
We are training them to walk in stilettos. We have also planned extensive grooming classes for the contestants. Some of them may be lean or overweight. But their exposure is not less than that of girls hailing from cosmopolitan cities. In the next five years, youngsters of the city can exceed the benchmark set by professional models and party-goers of major cosmopolitan cities in the country.”
