Global sensation Facehunter captures the sari in 13 stunning photos

Pernia Qureshi, Anjali Lama and more play muse

By ELLE team  June 15th, 2017

In case you’ve been living in a cave with no internet access, you’ll remember that acclaimed street style photographer Yvan Rodic AKA Facehunter visited India last month. After throwing him a grand ole welcome bash, (catch up over here) we sat back and allowed him to do what he does best. The global street style sensation traipsed around the sunny streets of Delhi, capturing the traditional Indian sari in all its humble glory with Pernia Qureshi, Anjali Lama and more playing muse. And the results are… well, excuse us for sounding biased, but the results are every bit as spectacular as we imagined.
