Aanchal embodies fashion like no other. Having worked with a host of reputed homegrown brands as a stylist and art director, she is pushing boundaries with her authentic and experimental view on fashion and its representation.
We discovered her on Instagram and were instantly hooked to her distinctive take on style and the exquisite creative visuals that she helps create.
On a personal level, she is as sweet as they come. Spontaneity teamed with refreshing candour. We caught up with her on one pleasant evening and got talking about everything under the sun. Some excerpts:
It’s a clichéd question, but please tell us a little about yourself.
I am a 20 something fashion enthusiast based out of New Delhi. I love dogs, food and fashion.
How do you define your personal style?
Understated yet eclectic.
When did you realise that you wanted to work in fashion?
I always knew I wanted to be a part of the fashion community. From a very early age I was drawn to design and clothes fascinated me. I remember sitting in the library soaking in all the fashion magazines I could lay my eyes on. Since then it's been a journey to do what I love and love what I do!
What are the things that you love and hate the most about being a stylist?
Styling gives me the opportunity to express myself and release all my creativity. It's truly humbling to be able to see my vision materialise and be well received. On the downside it's physically demanding and exhausting and oh the early morning call times!
People you love to stalk on Instagram?
Rakhi Sawant, haha.
Where do you draw your creative inspiration from?
The littlest of details from everyday life to monumental events in history - you can draw inspiration from anywhere. I let myself be free and open to observation and learning new things!
Any milestone in your career or personal life that you would want to share.
That's a tough one! I'd say I'm spoilt for choice. This year has been all about personal growth for me. I've had the opportunity and honour to work with some great, authentic brands from across the country. I enjoy every bit of it. I hope I'm able to continue on this path - all day, errryday!
Who is that one person you are hoping to collaborate/work with in the future?
So many people! The world is full of young, enthusiastic talent. I love Manrepeller - would be my dream job!
What are your current wardrobe staples?
A classic white shirt , LBD , Animal print to jujj it up!
Easy cotton dresses like yours :)
How would you style this dress from day to night?
Put on a chic belt, some comfy heels. Day to night is really about switching up accessories while still having fun!
What made you choose this dress?
I live and breathe in easy cotton summer dresses! This cute lavender number had my heart the first time I saw it :)
