This Olympiad topper started playing the game while pursuing MBA at IMT Ghaziabad. Here’s what she says about her fashion statements.
According to you, what is fashion all about?
Fashion is all about your identity and choices as an individual. I have always prioritized comfort over making fashion statements.
What is your go to outfit or brands, clothing types, etc?
I always prefer plain cotton dresses. This is my go-to outfit as I’m allergic because I am also allergic to other fabrics.
Is there a dress code that women have to follow?
It’s up to the individual to decide on their respective outfits; no specific dress code is listed down for women players. Even if I was given a choice, I would have the same set of clothes for work, holiday or poker.
Do the dress codes at casinos prove to be an element of discomfort? If yes, please tell us why.
I don’t think casino rules hinder comfort. I have been to many casinos and plain cotton clothes just seem to work.
Are there any particular accessories you cannot do without? If yes, mention which accessories and why do you always have them?
I am not very fond of accessories. I do not even wear my wedding ring at times.
