Vrinda Seth has been one of our greatest supporters from the beginning. She too believes in our vision that aspiring artists should be recognised by the world, so that they can reach their potential. Vrinda's global experience is nothing short of amazing. We invite you to read her informative interview below.
"I have always gone through agencies. But if I am looking for a freelance model, I would certainly go for someone who has experience in editorial fashion. But for newcomers, I know I need to get going with my fashion direction on achieving a particular look or style. It involves, making the model understand, different kind of poses, expressions, feature enhancing, eyes, smile, attitude. It's all visual training. I like meeting the models personally before my projects, shoots, shows or events."

I organised and hosted my very first style event called STYLE CLIQUE. Style Clique was an event to make every fashionista’s dream come true with endless glamour for every girl, handpicked outfit of your dream that can be bought and makeup that is flawless with hair that oomphs up your style quotient. To sum up the lineup, the event started with a workshop: Fashion style by VL, Beauty tips for party make-up by Gayathri Menon, Designer Raye Padit and Wang Meng talking about their fashion story followed by beauty and hair makeover for all the guest. Then each guest got ready and styled for the photo shoot . Indiestrings group covered the event .

Tell us more about your current role as an official stylist pageant sponsor in Singapore.
Yes, it was a great pleasure and fun experience to help the contestant running for the Miss/Mrs India Expat Singapore. My role was simply to guide them to be confident with who they are and that can be showed just through a right sense of fashion style. But the best part was, being a creative stylist, I got a chance to pick my winners to help them go through a proper directed conceptualised shoot.
Tell us your most memorable experience as a creative consultant?
There are many indeed. I always have had fun doing my projects, especially photo shoot styling and direction. The recent most memorable experience is my event.

I have always gone through agencies. But if I am looking for a freelance model, I would certainly go for someone who has experience in editorial fashion. But for newcomers, I know I need to get going with my fashion direction on achieving a particular look or style. It involves, making the model understand, different kind of poses, expressions, feature enhancing, eyes, smile, attitude. It's all visual training. I like meeting the models personally before my projects, shoots, shows or events.
