Ruchika how did you get into Personal Styling?
I grew up around fashion and textiles and was always mesmerized by the colors and fabrics. My creative side was ignited and the flame only grew as I got older which led me to helping friends who started their own lines and would come to me to style their photoshoots. Things moved quickly from that point and I was soon doing shoots for swimwear lines like Brette Sandler and Zoe nyc.
What are your favorite brands?
We are spoilt for choice in the fashion industry. I have a new favorite with every season, this season I’m loving Haider Akermann and Peter Pilotto. My timeless favorites are Valentino, Chanel and Tom Ford.
How would you describe your style?
It changes daily on my mood.
Comfort is my motto. I will never wear something I’m not comfortable in and I like to mix all kinds of styles together from rocker chic to ladylike florals. I would say my style is edgy and fun yet classic.
How do you conduct a session with a client?
I am very goal oriented with my clients. If they aren’t happy then I’ve failed. The key is knowing when to push them out their comfort zone. I start with getting to know what they want to change or improve on and take it from there.
What is the best part about giving someone a wardrobe edit?
The best way to describe a wardrobe edit is that it is the equivalent of an intense workout and at the end you feel lighter, stronger and a sense of accomplishment that is visible.
Any tips you’d like to share with our audience on updating their fall style?
This season its all about black white and grey, houndstooth and tartan. I love it!
