You might not know her name, but you’ve prob­a­bly seen her work— re­mem­ber the gor­geous out­fits Sonam Kapoor wore in Aisha? Yep, that was Tanya Ghavri’s do­ing. But while styling is her pas­sion, it wasn’t the orig­i­nal plan. “As a kid, I wanted to be an ar­chi­tect. I wasn’t even sure I wanted to work in fash­ion, more so in Bol­ly­wood, un­til I was in col­lege. That’s when I got to work with Per­nia Qureshi as the As­sis­tant Stylist for Aisha. And I re­alised this is what I wanted to do.” To­day, Tanya has a ros­ter of celeb clients, in­clud­ing Style Su­pe­rior, Sonam Kapoor. So what’s a typ­i­cal day in Tanya’s life like? “Very, very hec­tic, and equally fun,” she says. “A lot of thought goes be­hind each look. What works for one per­son won’t work for an­other, so I have to con­stantly evolve. When I’m on an as­sign­ment, I’m al­ways around be­cause it’s my vi­sion and I have to see it through.” Ask her for her most mem­o­rable mo­ment, and pat comes the an­swer: “I love dress­ing Sonam—she makes my job in­ter­est­ing. But I’ll al­ways re­mem­ber the time I styled Aish­warya Rai Bachchan for a cover in March. She is some­one I’ve al­ways looked up to, I’ve seen her be­ing crowned Miss World. So that was a dream come true.” Tanya’s plans for 2012 are busy, to say the least. “Right now, I’m styling Ka­reena Kapoor for all her pro­mo­tional ap­pear­ances for Ek Main Aur Ek Tu, as well as Sonam for her Play­ers pro­mos. I’m also styling Asin, Sarah Jane Dias and Am­rita Puri for their red car­pet ap­pear­ances, and Jacqueline Fer­nan­des for her up­com­ing movie later this year.” Tanya pauses for breath. “Yes, it’s go­ing to be a busy year,” she smiles.
