What is fashion to you?
Fashion to me is about always being yourself and being comfortable in what you wear—it’s as simple as that.

What are your wardrobe must-haves?
For me, it’s jeans, T-shirts, suits, nice shoes, and good clean underwear.

What do you think is trending right now?
Formals and comfortable clothes seem to be ruling the fashion stakes now.

How do you keep up with fashion?
I like to wear clothes by designers JJ Valaya and Rajeev Kumar.

How can one have that perfect look all the time?
It’s rather easy—just be casual!
