For being the Frida Kahlo of the Indian Fashion Industry

Hometown

Mumbai.

So far
Debuted at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter Festive 2014 with my capsule ‘La Casa Azul’, depicting a large framework of prints. Am also a fashion consultant.

First Show
While I stood on the ramp beaming from ear to ear, the love and warmth I received from the fashion industry…that feeling was overwhelming.

Greatest challenge
Not hitting the snooze button.

Childhood memory
Doodling croquis on my school text books.

Favourite designers
Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Manish Arora, Alexander McQueen, Rei Kawakubo, Vivienne Westwood.

Latest splurge
My Giorgio Armani sunglasses.

Wardrobe staples
Distressed boyfriend jeans, white sneakers and Trafaluc brogues.

Latest trend in your closet
I just wear my mood on my sleeve.

Success in three words
Achieve. Rinse. Repeat.

Current obsession
My seductive red lipstick.

The bucket list
Solve a Rubik’s cube, learn how to swim well enough to survive, and get Lady Gaga to swear by me and my clothes.

Motto in life
Work hard. Play harder.

Look forward In 2015
I’m hopeful that 2015 is action packed with ‘fabulousness’.
