Want a style up­date? Get in­spired as we raid the wardrobes of four of KL’s most fash­ion­able women

NA­DIA NASIMUD­DIN, 28

DI­REC­TOR OF F&B AT NAZA CORP AND CRE­ATIVE DI­REC­TOR OF PORTLUXE.COM.MY

Na­dia Nasimud­din wel­comes us into her beau­ti­ful du­plex apart­ment and almost im­me­di­ately we get lost in the glo­ri­ous maze of mir­rored doors that is her walk-in closet. The star of the shoot is in­stantly ob­vi­ous: Na­dia’s jaw-drop­ping col­lec­tion of bags. De­signer-wise, she cites ad­mi­ra­tion for Raf Si­mons, although her closet con­tains ev­ery­thing from Chanel to Hus­sein Cha­layan.

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO LOOK WHEN YOU HAVE 10 MIN­UTES TO GET OUT THE DOOR?

It would prob­a­bly take less than 10 min­utes be­cause I’d slip on a pair of jeans and match a top. I’m into T-shirt cut tops now.

WHICH PIECE GIVES YOU A CON­FI­DENCE BOOST WHEN YOU WEAR IT AND WHY?

Def­i­nitely my shoes. I’m pe­tite, so a lit­tle height boost gives me con­fi­dence, which also ex­plains why I mostly have heels!

HOW WOULD YOU MAKE AN OUT­FIT LAST ALL DAY?

I’d keep my out­fit all black. I’d splash on some colour with my shoes or bag and change them ac­cord­ing to the time of day or what my plans are for the day.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TOO MUCH OF IN YOUR WARDROBE?

Jeans, shoes, bags… too much of ev­ery­thing! Which is why I started Portluxe as an on­line out­let to let go of pre-loved items.

HOW DO YOU STYLE YOUR CLOSET AND WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ADD TO IT?

I like the com­bi­na­tion of white wood and mir­rors. It makes my closet look more spa­cious than it is. Which also means I’d like to add more closet space, please!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO GET READY AND WHAT IS YOUR ROU­TINE OF GET­TING DRESSED LIKE?

Not long, hon­estly. Ten to 15 min­utes, tops. I’ll usu­ally flip through my closet be­fore head­ing into the shower. So once I’m out of the shower and prepped, I al­ready know what to wear.

HOW DO YOU DE­CIDE ON WHAT TO WEAR?

If I’m dress­ing for an oc­ca­sion in the evening, I will de­cide what to wear in the morn­ing. That way, I’ll know how I want my hair done and what make-up look to go with. Other times, I just pick what to wear spon­ta­neously.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE TRENDS THIS SEA­SON?

Just one in par­tic­u­lar — mas­cu­line tai­lor­ing, es­pe­cially what Raf Si­mons did at Dior this sea­son.

WHAT THREE PIECES IN YOUR CLOSET ARE ES­SEN­TIAL TO YOU?

My best pair of jeans, a blazer, as well as my late fa­ther’s vin­tage gold Rolex.

HOW WOULD YOU DE­SCRIBE YOUR STYLE IN THREE WORDS?

Clean, ef­fort­less, time­less.
