What sparked your interest in fashion?
With both my mom and dad being in the business, I have grown up surrounded by fashion. Be it things such as browsing international magazines at home as kid or having designers and buyers over for dinner.
What is your first fashion memory?
My great-grandmother used to dress up in a crisp white salwar kameez with silver buttons, leather ballerinas from Bally and hair neatly coiffed in a bun.
What is your personal style statement?
Clean, casual and comfortable. It has to be effortless otherwise it doesn’t work for me.
What made you take up blogging?
The honest answer is boredom. I had moved to a new city and didn’t know anyone, so I started writing about things I liked as a hobby and it just took off from there.
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
Stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.
