Fashion Therapy

Mumbai-based renowned celebrity stylist Tanya Ghavri was in the Pink City for a conversation on the theme ‘Around the World in 7 Styles’, as a part of the Jewel Saga Pop-up party event at Shikaar Bagh on Wednesday evening. Tanya has styled renowned Bollywood celebrities like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Katrina Kaif to name a few, and has been doing really well in the field of styling.

Talking about when she decided she wanted to be a stylist, she said, “I initially wanted to become an architect, but when I had gone to New York to study, they taught us so much more, and that made me open my views on many other things that I could do. My first ever client was Sonam Kapoor, and I had a lot of pressure because she’s a style icon herself, but eventually, everything fell in place.”

“If I have to choose one favourite celebrity out of everyone I have styled till now, I would say Bebo (Kareena Kapoor Khan) has that elegant factor- she’s so classy, the energy I get from her is very different, and she just has this flawless flair,” Tanya added.

Being a stylist can be extremely fun, yet challenging at the same time. Talking about the biggest challenge so far, she stated, “Before the release of ‘Sacred Games 2’, Netflix contacted me just 3 days before the shoot of the first-look. It was a major task for me, as I had to think about styling 8 big stars in just 3 days, as they particularly wanted retro looks.” She further laughed it off by saying “I still remember, they said they wanted to come up with this look to confuse their viewers about their perception about the second season, and I must say, it was a really scary and exciting ride, but at the same time, a really challenging one as well.”

Tanya also stated that a full monotone look is going to be the fashion trend in the coming year, as tones with the same color with a statement jewellery piece will definitely stand out, and multi-coloured outfits are going to be side-lined for a while.
