Sartorial and beauty hacks for fashion week
Keep it simple, fashion week calls for long days, endless meetings and back-to-back shows. While it’s important to look your stylish best, it’s crucial to last through the day. Keep yourself hydrated to keep the skin from looking dull and tired. The harsh lights and long hours can really take a toll on the skin.

Nez by Neha Agarwal, Whim Boutique and Khushnuma Khambatta.

In your jewellery box
My Marc Jacobs cuff, jewellery from en Inde, Jennifer Fisher, Suhani Pittie, Eina Ahluwalia and CVH Studio, and pieces from thrift stores and my travels.

An outfit you can live in
My drop-crotch pants and ganjis.

Trendsetting moment
My store Atosa is and will always be my moment of glory.

A secret shopping place in India
The ashram store and the Kalki shop in Pondicherry, and Shades of India in New Delhi.

Next, Monica Dogra.
