My style

Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.

 

Why Melchi do you always wear designer brands? That’s the eternal question I’m asked!

The answer is simple. I feel good when I wear them. These brands have grown with creativity of one person who thought beyond others. So why not respect the creativity.

 

I’ve never looked at myself as a style diva or fashionista, I wear what I feel suits me the best.

 

Your style is really a reflection of your own individuality

 

My parents pay attention to how I dress. But as I am growing up, I was conforming, trying to be like everyone else. It takes time to understand who you really are and how you want to be perceived.

My sense of style is very personal, but I do incorporate what is trendy. I’ve always preferred the classic style, simple but well-cut clothes. I prefer elegant, understated look that endures. My parents say if you see a photograph of yours ten years later, it should bring back memories.

 

Till I was 5 years I was wearing more of Armani, Burberry, D&G, Gucci, Dior but when I was given the choice I fell in love with Christian Dior and the sheer simplicity and elegance of its styles at Harrods, London. I use more of Dior than other brands. I started wearing designer brands when I have not even learnt what brand meant!

 

From India I wear my personal designer clothes.

 

I love accessories. I’m a girl. I love shoes. I love handbags

 

 

Shoes are the finishing touch on any outfit. A shoe is not only a design, but it’s a part of my body language, the way I walk. The way I am going to move is quite dictated by my shoes. I prefer comfortable and simple shoes from Prada, Gucci, Dior for both my casual and formal looks. My sportive looks are added by ON shoes and Stella McCartney.

 

There’s a very small percentage of people that take limos to school and have designer bags – no one in my school has that. In Grade 1, I was quite fancy to have Burberry backpack, Grade 4 I fell in love with a hot pink Prada backpack and Grade 5 with a red Gucci. My weekend outings are complete with my Louis Vuitton, Dior and Prada sling bags.

 

I cherish my Gucci, Prada, Salvatore hairbands which brings charm in my looks.

 

Diamonds are girls’ best friends…I just love and wear only those white stones.
