What do you do?

I'm a fashion student.

What brings you to Lakme Fashion Week?

The excitement and the chance to see the new fashion trends in the industry. It also gives you a chance to network and meet new people.

What are you wearing?

I am wearing an H&M blazer with matching tailored trousers. I have paired it with a lace corset. I chose the look because it is classy yet cool at the same time. It blends perfectly with the summer resort theme.

What's fashion to you?

It is all about comfort and style. It is the way you can portray your ideas in front of the world.

What do you do?

I'm a student.

What brings you to Lakme Fashion Week?

Today I have come with my classmates. But on other days I attend shows to understand the trends and get to know the designers.

What are you wearing?

I'm wearing a T-shirt dress. It is actually a large size T-shirt, which I have converted into a dress.

I am also carrying a blush pink handbag and matching heels.

What is your fashion mantra?

Fashion basically is a way you express yourself. That's the reason why everyone has a different style.

For me, fashion is about expressing myself and staying stylish.

What do you do?

I'm a beauty and fashion director at Miss

I am also a beauty writer for Harper's Bazaar.

What are you wearing?

I am wearing a jumpsuit by Chola. I love anything by Chola; she is one of my favourite designers.

When it comes to fashion weeks, I feel like anything comfortable is the way to go. I chose a black outfit as it is my favourite colour.

I tend to wear black every single day. That's what I have in my closet too! I have come from New York so typically it is ingrained in me. But I am trying to explore more colours.

What does fashion mean to you?

It is anything that makes me happy. So everyone can have style and be fashionable.

There's no right or wrong fashion. As long as what you wear makes you happy, gives you some swag and makes you confident, but comfort is key.
