Meet THE style maven : Edward Lalrempruia, Fashion Director Harper’s Bazaar India is Rock N Shop’s visionary of the month and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
"I come from a very small town in Mizoram, was raised in a small place. Whatever I’m doing is beyond what I ever expected and to me, it’s not really work, it’s something that I love to do. I live here, so I see and I breathe Indian fashion.
I do go to Paris, Milan to attend fashion week every 6 months, so obviously what I see and take in is different than what I see here.
My first job in fashion was helping models with their outfits backstage and then assisting show director Aparna Bahl. My favourite moment was attending The Paris Fashion Week in 2009 - it was my first - I had goosebumps all over!
Winter florals and ruffles are going to be some of the hottest trends that I can make out by the collections I’m seeing. My bucket list is huge but at the moment, I think my top five would be Alexander McQueen, Leowe, J.W. Anderson, Givenchy and Chanel!
I do feel stylists are underrated in the fashion industry, it’s obviously a cut throat business but it’s nice to see stylists getting the attention and appreciation now. For any fashion lover or aspiring stylist, I’d like to advise them to keep their integrity - be yourself, be original and work hard!
