"I've always enjoyed expressing my creativity through clothing, which is one reason I've decided to pursue a career as a Stylist. Just like no two people are the same, no two outfits are the same. You can always add or subtract elements to make the outfit unique to the person wearing it”, explains Sneha.

Pondering upon the urge to gain an in-depth knowledge of styling, she continues, ”I desired to know more about how to select clothes and accessories for publications, television advertising, music, and concerts. As a former Fashion Designer, I could create designs by hand or computer, and the garments are final outcome, furthermore, to combine both of these skills was my inspiration to be a Fashion Stylist.”
