RK : When did you start blogging/ social media, and what was your motivation for getting started?

Nikita : When I started blogging back in 2012, the concept of fashion blogging was totally unheard of, blogs were very casual and a personal website to document outfits and Fashion/Styling was an alien concept. Being one of the first movers in Fashion blogging in India and first Luxury Fashion blogger in India was certainly not a cakewalk, this journey has surely had it’s ups and downs, but it feels really great to inspire so many people everyday at so many levels.


RK : Do you have specific blog/ social media influencer aspirations, and if so what are they?

Nikita : Creating a unique identity and brand image. Keep on inspiring people and growing my community even bigger, this platform gives me a chance to inspire so many young women out there and I want to share my ideas, my love for fashion with even more wonderful people.
