ELLE: Tell us a little about the celebrities you’ve styled so far.

Eshaa Amiin: I’ve styled Karisma Kapoor, Ishaan Khattar and Saif Ali Khan, among others. I always try to understand their personality and help them enhance it with something refreshing and different that’s within their vibe yet exciting for them and the audience to see. But, what’s more exciting is that I feel that I’m learning something new from them as well.

ELLE: What was it like shooting for the sneak peek video of the Myntra Insider Masterclass? 

EA: It was so much fun and it felt different being on the other side of the camera and talking about what I normally would behind the scenes while styling.

ELLE: Can you share three quick tips for anyone shopping for festive clothing?  

EA: Do your research. Know your colours as per your skin tone. Try different silhouettes. Don’t restrict yourself-only then would you know if a different style or trend actually works for you or not.

ELLE: What’s the best way to accessorise festive clothing? 

EA: For women, chaandbaalis, kundan polki choker or a maang tika. For men, get your footwear right, be it cross-strap sandals or leather/suede shoes with or without lace; those are my favourites.

ELLE: What are some of the festive wear trends that anyone can wear? 

EA: Cowl kurta, asymmetric plackets in bandhgalas and kurtas, pre-draped saris, and fusion wear. I love mixing silhouettes to create an interesting yet stylish look.

ELLE: What’s the one thing that one should avoid when dressing for a festive occasion?

EA: Being OTT is not bad as long as it’s done stylishly by combining the right things together. For example, a statement choker can  be classy when worn without earrings. 

ELLE: What’s the best thing about being a stylist?

EA: It’s an art form that’s fun. You don’t just create looks; you can create a persona. I love how spontaneous and creative my job gets.
