What got you into being a Stylist?
I was studying art & design at foundation level knowing I wanted to get into fashion, I didn’t have much confidence in stitching so I thought of a different way to bring my visions to life and that was styling! Now I love it
How would you describe you approach/Form of Styling?
My work is usually based off social current issues, wether it be breaking gender boundaries, women empowerment or self acceptance. I aspire to influence those that keep up with me to let go of oppressive attitudes in generations to come, yet keeping it quirky, vibrant and full of energy.
What are you Favourite Colours?
My fave colours are literally anything bright and playful! I would say that’s my trademark. So basically all the colours of the rainbow🌈 .
What’s your Essentials must have for everyday?
Essential must haves, my rings!! Perfume, you got to smell good out here! And my phone.
We Really love how your culture plays a role in your work and you as an individual incorporating and inspiring others ,How important is this to you as as a whole?
Culture is very important to me. Growing up in a predominantly white area the brown kids were always made fun of, there was a lack of representation within the South Asian community and I always found it difficult, maybe even embarrassed to embrace my heritage. Now that I’ve grown up, I’m so proud of where I come from and again, I want to influence those that come from a cultured background to always remember their roots! That’s why I incorporate it into my looks! I’ve had a few DM’s from people of my own race telling me I’ve helped them gain confidence in embracing who they are and that makes me feel so happy! I know 14 year old me needed the me now
