A freewheeling conversation with Bollywood’s power stylist Isha Bhansali

For every observed of all observer look, there is always a great stylist!

Someone has rightly said that the fashion sense and sensibility of an individual is something that leaves an indelible impression without having them to speak. It becomes even more integral and significant to someone who is being constantly looked up to and followed by the masses. Whether posing for shutterbugs for a red carpet moment, donning a designer outfit for a wedding, showing a high street fashion look, or perfecting a casual yet chic airport look they are constantly being followed by fans, influencers, and paparazzi.

But the fact that nothing remains constant goes for fashion trends as well. And It’s not an easy job to remain au courant and updated about the subject. Moreover, celebrities want to showcase their individualistic styles and want to create very defined style visions. And that is where the fashion stylist steps in, they not only interpret the look of the celebrity by lending their Midas touch but also create indispensable style revolutions and proud fashion moments. Bollywood and the fashion industry are inseparable and have always gone hand in hand There are actors who are not just known for their histrionics but admired for their experimental style and unique sense of dressing.
