Snapshots: Nidhi Jacob




space
What's your name? What do you do?
Nidhi Jacob. I've got my stubby fingers in all things fashion.

What’s your personal style?
Very granny-chic. I've have this strange love for faded florals and heritage hand-me-down pieces. I also like tacky, shiny things, like hookerish sparkly dresses, fake indian gold jewellery and beyonce. I'm a weird mix.

Why is fashion/ style important to you?
I love that your clothes can say so much about you without you even uttering a word. I've never been much of a talker and fashion was my earliest form of expression.

What/ who inspires you?
Katie Grand because she has what it takes to be best friends with Giles, street blogs, hindi movies and old family photos.

What do you treasure most in your wardrobe?
Everything my grandmother passed down to me- her faux pearl necklace, crochet clutches, how to do print clash and my violent mood swings (that has a lot to do with what i wear everyday).

What do you splurge on?
I hate forking out too much money on clothes, I'm a cheapskate. It's usually Rs. 300 tops on a single garment. But i'll make an exception for shoes or a bag. But even then never more than Rs. 3000. Ever.

What do you love doing?
Sleeping, watching trace tv, watching my best friend's mouth move, farm animals and dries van noten. And jil sander.

What’s your biggest wish?
At the moment, its a very materialistic list- an Alexander Wang bag, the Miu Miu ss10 chunky mary-janes and the skintone to carry off ash-blonde hair. (All for free please). Some years down the line, a magazine title of my own.
