For making the conventional appear covetable

Vice-chairperson CSR of Apollo Hospitals; Managing director of Apollo Life; fitness lover; Hyderabad.

Signature style
A well-cut shirt dress that’s great for work as well as after hours.

Favourite labels
Anamika Khanna and Tarun Tahiliani’s creations work the best for me. I also like Lanvin, Proenza Schouler and Comme des Garçons.

Shopping destinations
London, Florence and Paris.

Wardrobe Treasure
An heirloom zardozi khara dupatta handed down from my dad’s side of the family.

Planned or spontaneous dressing
Spontaneous!

Investment buys
Basra pearls.

Will never be seen in
Fishnet stockings.

Day to evening transition
Swap flats with heels and the big work bag with a clutch.

A sartorial thumb rule
Feel confident in whatever you wear and watch the flaws vanish.

Current fashion phase
I’m into trackpants right now.

A current trend you sport with a personal take
Comfortable clothes…but not big and loose…always well-fitted.

Your favourite dressing-up song
None, I only think about work and the occasion.

How important is it to dress your part in your line of work
Very! You cannot wear too much bling or be OTT in a hospital; it’s very inappropriate.
