What would you say is the biggest challenge about Fashion Blogging?
One of the biggest challenges in Fashion Blogging is to stay original. With the increase in no. of fashion bloggers, the pressure to create fresh content is immense. It is very easy to derail & look for easier alternates to become famous. For ex- copying any trendy blogger abroad. Creating appealing & original content is the biggest challenge. One should always remember that shortcuts are short-lived. Only true talent gets long-term success & recognization.
In Bollywood, according to you who is a true Fashion Icon?
I’m a huge fan of Deepika Padukone’s style statement. However, a lot of people fail to realize that celebrities wear whatever is presented to them by their stylists. Most of the times they have little to no say in picking their outfits. They spend so much time on staying in shape & movie shootings that they have to hire teams of trained people to do the job of styling for them. So the real hero who stays behind the curtains & does this Job for Deepika is Shaleena Nathani. Ideally, she is my favourite Fashion icon.
Your Favourite Cuisine?
I love Italian food. Aglio e Olio spaghetti is my favourite dish. Anyone who has shared a meal with me ever will surely know his thing.!!
You Favourite Accessory?
I’m a sucker for Shoes with high heels. The kind of shoe you wear can completely transform your look. You can make a basic denim & T-shirt to stand out by combining it with a good pair of a stiletto. Shoes are the magic wand used to add glamour to any outfit.
Name your top favorite 3 Brands
I’m not a very brand conscious person & love experimenting with different labels both new & established. If I like the design & fit I’m more than happy to shop from unheard labels as well.
Having said that I’m very picky about my Handbags, watches & Sunglasses.
My favorite handbag Brand is Burberry, For my sunnies I love Bvlgari & for my watch, my all time favorite is Longines.
I prefer my apple smartwatch during the day & classic Longines for evenings.
