Personal Agenda with Ritu Beri:“We need more fashion watchdogs to keep things legit”
The veteran designer talks about fashion, wardrobe essentials, and the celebrity showstopper phenomenon
What’s the last thing you googled?
The Virtue of Selfishness by Ayn Rand, to gift to my 12-year-old.
On Beri’s phone:
One piece of clothing we’ll always find in your wardrobe...?
My crisp cotton white shirt, that fits me better than a glove.
A personality you wish to dress up...?
Billie Eilish, for the Grammys.
Tell us one wardrobe staple that everyone should have?
Sexy blue jeans.
What’s your take on the value of a celebrity showstopper in a fashion show today?
For the sake of it, superfluous. For the synergy of it, significant!
Beri says the high point of her life has been her shows during Le Semaine de la Haute Couture in Paris in 1999 and 2000 (pictured above). The senior designer is one of the first Indians to show her collection in the world’s fashion capital.
And on watchdogs like Diet Sabya...?
We need more of them to keep things legit.
What would the title of your autobiography be?
Heart of the Restless Mind.
