First brush with fashion
When I was a kid, I was gifted a set of fashion (illustration) plates. This is my earliest memory. There were so many permutations possible and I loved doodling with it.

Current fashion phase
Anti-fit.

Precious inheritance
Mom’s wedding sari in baby pink and silver, designed with geometric patterns.

Accessory update
Earrings by Marie-Hélène de Taillac, and Catherine Levy.

Shopping philosophy
Don’t ignore something that you love at first sight. Go for it and avoid regrets later.

Wardrobe Treasures
My all-time favourite cocoon jacket by Rajesh Pratap Singh. It’s my saviour in the Delhi winter.

Most fashionable woman alive
Gwyneth Paltrow.

Your style, then and now
Used to be experimental earlier but now it’s more relaxed.

Current lust list
Chloe and Celine.

A versatile travel companion
Anything in jersey fabric is extremely convenient.
