Best Dressed 2015: Ruchika Sachdeva
Fashion designer; owner of Bodice; has trained under legendary designer Vivienne Westwood; has made waves with the normcore look and her minimal take on trends; New Delhi.
Strong but relaxed.
Current fashion phase
Clean and edited.
Blues, black, and greys. Currently, I’m in love with natural indigo.
Expression of creativity.
Daily fashion inspiration
I surround myself with people who inspire me, all the time.
Dover Street Market in the UK; I love flea markets anywhere in the world.
High-waisted trousers and oversized anything.
A lot of soft jackets from Bodice.
Only shop when travelling.
When you get bored of your own designs
I make new ones! We are designing clothes every six months so the element of ‘newness’ doesn’t die out.
An absolute no-no
Never try too hard.
Favourite Indian designers
I really like NorBlack NorWhite as they have fun with what they do and Sabyasachi — his whole journey is quite admirable.
