From founding editor of Harper’s Bazaar India to brand consultant for Satya Paul, celebrated fashion journalist Sujata Assomull-Sippy has helped to redefine the way Indians perceive fashion today. Moxie Media sat down with Women in Media Delhi panelist and mentor Assomull-Sippy to discuss the power of print, Twitter identities, and finding your digital niche.
Q: You were the founding editor of Harper’s Bazaar India. Launching the Indian edition of an international fashion magazine in India must be no easy feat. What was your experience like?
A: I’ve learnt many things over the years so I think launch is my expertise. Launching Harper’s Bazaar was great because it is a magazine that really allowed you to fuse Indian with international and that is a woman’s wardrobe so I think it was a great experience of showing how Indian and international fashion can work so well, which is something I really believe in, so it gave me a chance – a whole book to do what I believe in.
Pernia Qureshi, founder of Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop, has transformed the Indian shopping landscape by creating one of the most accessible, sleek, and fashion-forward e-commerce portals, which carefully curates clothes and accessories from established and up-and-coming designers.
