ST: Trishna, interesting name, where are you from? (your origins)

T: I’m fully indian but I’m from Singapore 🙂

ST: What do you do in life? 

T: I’m currently in my third year of apparel design, working on a collection for a final year project.

ST: What brought you to blogging & instagramming?

T: I’m obsessed with taking photos so Instagram was the first place I went to to share my pictures. Initially, they were all candid captures with funny captions (haha) but as i grew older, i started using Instagram as a platform to document my life. Right now, if I scrolled through my Instagram, I can tell exactly what I was going through at a certain period of my life just by looking through my pictures.

ST: You define yourself as a reporter of style, food, love and life – What is your favourite style?

T: I’m a pretty casual (or lazy) person, so my style is definitely pretty laid-back. Although, I have my dressed-up glam moments, I usually just prefer being in a tee & shorts! :p

ST: If you could have dinner with a celebrity (dead or alive) which person would you pick?

ST: What do you think one needs in order to be considered stylish or be seen as a style icon?

T: I think the most important thing is to always be yourself. Dress the way you’d dress and act the way you’d act. People will love you for who you are.

ST: Did your style evolve over the years/are you feeling an evolution in the way you used to dress till now?

T: Yes definitely! I believe everyone’s style evolves over the years as they grow. I have definitely grown out of my CMYK COLOUR phase heh heh
