I’ve already had the pleasure of telling all of you about my participation as the Mumbai Mentor of Style Your Way To Paris with Swarovski. Apart from that, I gave you all low-down on the shortlisted participants for my team mate – and to say that the event went off well, would be an understatement! I had a great time meeting with and getting to know all the new bloggers from in an around the city (some even flew in specially for the day!). Getting to meet people who appreciate and look up to my work and want to be part of this amazing journey really made me feel so blessed! It’s been almost four years since I’ve been at this and I think that so far, it’s only gone from being good to even better.
The event held at Palladium, Lower Parel had a complete jury in place: Sukanya Dutta Roy (MD, Swarovski), Sanjana Eipe (Marketing & Sales Director, POPxo), Pasham Alwani (Stylist, Grazia India), Anne (RJ, 94.3 Radio One) – and of course, yours truly. Among all the enthusiasts that displayed their styling talents, a few really stood out. While each participant had the opportunity to speak with the jury personally, most of them made the most of conveying their thoughts and approach towards street style in India, their personal blogging journeys and what set them apart from the rest. All in all, the fashionistas wooed us to the fullest! After many discussions, we had the winner with us: Sanaa Khan of Haute Culture was selected to be my Mentee and partner-in-crime for the journey ahead of us.
What’s next? Your help! I’m soon going to be uploading a video (details on that later) with more information on how your votes can help me win this contest! 50% of final result will be based on these votes, while the remaining 50% will be in the hands of the final jury to choose. More details on that soon – for now, wish us all the best with the video and votes!
