Amritsar-based model and designer Yasmeen Bagga says she goes by the quality of work and not the quantity

“Break the pattern, and don’t let monotony gets to you,”says the Amritsar-based model, celebrity stylist and designer Yasmeen Bagga. It has been three years of experience in modelling, costume designing, but she has the confidence to turn down a project that doesn’t ignite her artistic sensibilities.“When my bridal shoots went viral, I remember I was offered same kind of make-up or outfit-based shoots only. So, I stepped out of that zone that allowed me a limited space to emote as a bride. I choose to experiment instead of doing quantity work.”

Born and brought up in Amritsar, she believes the city’s festive vibes, especially during Diwali and Lohri, are infectious. “If markets are flooded with people months before Diwali, then one can see the kites flying high before Lohri. I am proud of where I come from and my Amritsari dialect has only helped me gel with new groups, besides Amritsari chole kulche,” she adds.

Creative streak

Creativity is her passion, for she doesn’t limit herself to labels. She adds, “I will work on any project as long as it helps me explore my creative side. It could be acting, designing, modelling, painting or singing or even doing make-up.” Having completed her graduation in design from BBK DAV College for Women, Amritsar, she was also actively involved in theatre and often participated in Youth Festivals.

It was during those days in 2017 that she was offered a chance to model for a bridal shoot by celebrity makeup-artist Shahid Naar. From there on, she became the muse of various bridal shoots for a jewellery company, makeup artists or costume designers.

Having styled Neeru Bajwa for Atte Di Chidi’s promotional events to designing costumes for the poster shoot of Shadaa movie to styling a magazine’s Diwali shoot, featuring Japji Khaira, last year, she has come a long way in small time.

True inspiration

The transformation from a college girl to a professional was so smooth that she sometimes regrets not being involved in acting anymore. “I draw my strength from my mother. She is not a person who would sympathise with me if I am having a bad day. She doesn’t pamper me or fabricate lies to boost my confidence, but would rather be a critic. That helps a lot. There are two words that help me in a difficult situation - patience and perseverance!”

She recently shot a music video for singer and Rising Star Season 3 winner Aftaab Singh’s upcoming song. Having worked with big labels, she would definitely like to start her own someday!
