As intriguing as the backstage is at a fashion show, it is a place nowhere close to glamorous.

It's chaotic. Unkempt. Racks of dazzling clothes are strewn about higgledy-piggledy.

It's fashion unpacked. Fashion not ready. Fashion in the raw.

It's also Rush Hour Central, busier practically than Mumbai's Churchgate station -- models, makeup artists, hairdressers, stylists, fashion designers tear about in a blur Getting The Job Done.

The mad frenzy is non-stop, right up until the adrenaline-packed last few seconds before models seductively sashay onto stage.

Yet amidst the madness there is light and sunshine. The models are the sunshine. They really lighten up the mood backstage.

It's not rare to spot happy faces snapping selfies even while their hair and makeup is being intricately done.

Take a look at the enchanting scenes behind mysterious closed curtains at the ongoing FDCI India Couture Week.
