Mumbai-based model Sanea Sheikh on loving fashion shows and growing flowers in her garden.
I love spending time at home as work usually involves travelling all the time. At home, I like to unwind with my three cats — Posh, Spanky and Momo — and dabble in a bit of gardening. I grow hibiscus, Chinese roses, mint and chillies. I can practically sit in my bed and watch television shows all day, especially my favourite, Game of Thrones. Travelling and photography are also my passions. Spending time with my family, especially my three sisters, rejuvenates me the most.
During show season, it gets hectic; we have fittings, make-up sessions, rehearsals and shows. I try to step out of the venue as much as I can to get some fresh air. But I love fashion weeks because they’re one big, happy reunion. Between shows I’ll catch up with friends. Walking the ramp is like an adrenaline rush for me. Owning the ramp for a minute or two, with all eyes only on you, can give you quite a high. Plus, I get to look my very best all the time, thanks to different members of the fraternity who’re working on me.
