Shashi first studied chiropractic medicine but did not pursue the profession she is now a well-known actress, television presenter and model. Shashi is the owner of Alushi Models who has vast experience in the fashion, entertainment and model industries.
WHY I LOVE HER STYLE?
Shashi ALWAYS looks amazing, I mean ALWAYS! Besides her luscious locks and flawless skin, her outfits are beautifully put together and make you want to wear them. I think Shashi understands her body and what looks good on her and she has her own style and tends to not follow trends too much which is great and that’s why I love her!
GETTING TO KNOW YOU:
1) If your house was burning down which shoes would you save and why?
Firstly, let me start by saying this is a horrible question because that is similar to asking me to choose from one of my children, but if I were absolutely forced into making a call, I would say my 6 inch peep toe sling-back Christian Louboutins. I love the fact that they are eco friendly. Each shoe is completely unique, because they are made from recycled Louboutins factory materials.
2) Growing up, when did you fall inlove with fashion?
I was a bit of a late bloomer. I never had any interest in fashion or boys. The exact moment I fell in love with fashion was when I slipped on my matric dance dress for the first time. It was a custom made dress, just for me, I felt my personality lift instantly and in that moment, realized the transformative power of fashion.
3) How has your background influenced the way you dress?
Being of Indian decent, I have always been drawn towards warm vibrant colours, textures in fabrics and bold accessories.
4) Do you have any favourite brands
Hand Bags & Belts- Louis Vuitton
Office Staples- Trennery
Wardrobe Fashion Basics- Zara
Red Carpet Glamour- Gert Johan Coetzee
5) What essential beauty or fashion item should every girl own?
Must Haves? My STAPLES ARE…
A versatile denim shirt
A classic black polo neck
The little black dress (LBD)
The ultimate biker jacket
A beautiful silk scarf
A perfectly fitted navy blazer
A handbag that cost way too much
And most importantly: The pair of jeans that feel like they were made just for you.

Print on print is a huge trend this season and can be a lot of fun if done correctly. But getting this trend right can be a tricky affair. Mixing them together to get a bold and beautiful look is what you need to work on. Here are some tips:
Stick to the same colour scheme
Mix prints which are in the same colour family. You could try teaming a green paisley blouse with a green polka dotted or striped skirt. Keep the colours harmonious by wearing different shades of the same colour
Go easy on the accessories
If you’re unsure rather add a solid bag or clutch or statement necklace. Also, I would limit accessories to a bare minimum.
Balance is the key
Balancing two prints is the key to but getting the balance right requires a little practice. Here are some tips you should keep in mind – balance out intricate prints with neutral hues and bright colours. Mix similar prints such as floral on floral or polka dot on polka dot. If you’re wearing a bold printed floral blouse, team it with a smaller print floral skirt or trousers. Same goes for other prints as well.
Printed trousers are a huge trend this season and a lot of models on the ramp as well as celebrities have been spotted wearing printed pants with printed tops. While they can carry this look with ease, if you’re still new to this trend, you could end up looking a mess. If you’re on the heavier side I recommend you don’t mix two bold prints together.

In my style stakes, shoes are the most important element to an outfit. I absolutely love shoes (as most women I’m sure) so here’s a rundown of everything hot in the heels department this summer from block heels to metallics and ankle straps.
Get those feet pedicured and walk in style this summer…
