For working the natural look like a pro

Fashion Stylist; Mumbai

Being a stylist is all about
Patience and an innate sensibility.

A four-course breakfast.

Breakfast on-the-go
Coffee and a granola bar.

Easy jazz and deep house.

A stylist who inspires you
Christine Centenara, I love her fresh approach.

De-stress mantra
Meditation.

Absolutely love wearing
A bikini (I see so many clothes every day that summer holidays by the beach bring me the most joy!).

An outfit you can live in
Joggers and vest.

Airport style
Comfy pants, something stretchable and a jacket.

Work wear essentials
Tracks, vest, stylish jacket and sneakers, always in a neutral palette. It’s my uniform.

Flats or heels
Flats during the day and heels at night.

An outfit you can’t wear, yet can’t get rid of
I have a closet full of pieces like that…India can be a very restrictive place.

Most adventurous moment
Well, I’ve tried everything really…the most adventurous being punk chic.
