For her sharp, individualistic take on Indian and Western wear

Secret to style
Keep it simple, keep it real, be yourself and wear what works for you.

Indian, international or fusion wear?
Much as I love the sari, I am most comfortable in contemporary, Western clothing.

A fashion experiment you nailed
Androgyny.

A trend you can’t get enough of
High-waisted trousers and flared pants.

Most prized possession
My sherwani from Rishta by Arjun Saluja.

Wardrobe Treasures
Phillip Lim, McQ by Alexander McQueen, AllSaints, Payal Khandwala and smallshop by Anshu and Jason.

Recent fashion discovery
The Row by Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen. Though the label has been around for a while, I am in love with its effortless, easy and relaxed aesthetic. Definitely on my wish list….

Most stylish woman alive
Rihanna, without a doubt.

First brush with fashion
A summer job with the then-very-popular brand, Barcode, while I was in graduate school.

Looking forward to wearing
Antar-Agni by Ujjwal Dubey.

Will never be seen without
My curls!
