Strictly stylish

Style according to you is…

It’s something that you are born with and it’s something that enhances your personality. The way you dress up reflects the type of person you really are.

Five items in your closet you can’t do without?

I am completely obsessed with my Navratna ring (it’s set with nine precious stones), a silver handwoven clutch, my Salvatore Ferragamo keds, a shirt I designed that has postage stamps digitally printed on it and a silk shirt that’s styled with south-sea pearls.

Most extravagant buy

A diamond-studded watch by Bvlgari that I purchased in Zurich two years ago.

What kind of a shopper are you?

I have clear-cut ideas about what I want before I go shopping.

You have a fetish for?

Shoes and more shoes. I love Ferragamo keds as they are comfortable as well as open-toe sandals from the brand.

If money was no object, what would you add to your closet?

It will definitely be shoes — especially from Alberta Ferretti.

Indian designers whose creations you love wearing?

Rajesh Pratap Singh’s ensembles for their awesome styling.

Biggest fashion faux pas

None really as I do a lot of research before buying anything. I am a hardcore critic of my own sartorial sense. I cannot dress up shabbily.

A fashion tip

Think about what you are going to wear and ensure that it’s comfortable and effortlessly put together.
