If not a designer, you’d have been...

A painter or an architect.

A Hollywood star you’d like to style...

Halle Berry because she comes across as a fearless person in the roles she plays and she’s got a great sense of style.

If you were to dress a prominent personality from history, who would it be and why?

I love spirited people. So, it would have to be Elizabeth Taylor because she was a stunning and impetuous beauty who lived by her own rules.

A designer whose creations you love to wear...

I like very simple things so it would have to be Giorgio Armani. In India, I like Arjun Saluja for his beautiful cottons.

Your biggest fashion faux pas?

A giant bow on a client.

Which Bollywood couple would you like to style on their wedding day and why?

Priyanka Chopra and whoever she decides to marry because I’m a fan of her spirit.

Sarong

What is that one thing about Indian fashion that bugs you?

The constant ‘Royal’ pretence.

A bikini or a burkha, which one would you lend your designer touch to and how?

A burkha, as it’s a cover and I love draping. And, it can be decorated too.

A customised cocktail for you would contain...

Crème de cassis, champagne and whisky sours.

It would read: Hopeless!

Describe your closet in three words

Clothes don’t fit.
