My per­sonal style is... “An ecletic mix of ur­ban idio­syn­cra­sies, min­i­mal­ism and an­drog­yny.” The one es­sen­tial work wear garment is... “A well-tai­lored boyfriend jacket for a straight-for­ward im­pres­sion.” A trend I’m lov­ing right now is... “Fluid sweat jack­ets in trop­i­cal and ori­en­tal prints, which re-de­fine the un­der­cur­rent of sports-cou­ture.” The best part about my job is... “That I get to meet peo­ple from the worlds of fash­ion, art, en­ter­tain­ment, cul­ture and busi­ness.” In­dian de­sign­ers I ap­pre­ci­ate are... “Kal­lol Datta sim­ply pushes all bound­aries with his avant garde shapes, and Shivan and Nar­resh for be­ing the first-ever to build a sportscou­ture do­main in In­dia.” My style icon is... “Mar­lene Di­et­rich for be­ing one of the most al­lur­ing cin­e­matic femme fa­tales of all time—she is known for adapt­ing screen looks in her per­sonal wardrobe!” My top shop­ping tips are... “Al­ways try on dif­fer­ent styles be­fore pick­ing some­thing ob­vi­ous—you might dis­cover a new you. Also, never buy a to­tal look un­less you can play it with other sep­a­rates in your wardrobe. And mostly, don’t be brand ob­sessed.”
