“Today we’d like to introduce you to Malvika Sheth.
Malvika, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Growing up, I vividly remember my fondness for all of my mother’s and grandmother’s clothes, makeup, jewelry, and simply the way they put together a look and got ready for their special events. However, even on a daily basis, both were immaculately dressed. Drawing from these two personal inspirations, I became very keen on pursuing a career in style and fashion at a very young age. In fact, I have never really strayed from that goal and have always sought to pursue internships and experiences within that industry.
Eight months ago, I decided to share my love for and experiences within the industry. I run an Instagram (@stylebymalvika) wherein I post my daily outfits and, from time to time, lifestyle and accessory detail shots. I also have my own blog/website wherein I write quite constantly about different trends and give my insight into styling to make fashion an easier task for my audience. My most recent excursion has been documenting my travel moments and also how fashion is incorporated into my daily life through vlogs on YouTube.
In essence, my “brand” is centered around providing style, and often even lifestyle, advice for the driven dreamer. As aforementioned, I’ve had a dream my entire life — a reputable career within the fashion industry.
And, I ensure that my drive to get there does not get hindered by anything or anyone. I believe it is this very attitude that is reflected in my day-to-day style. For all the driven dreamer’s out there — I hope you never let anything stop you from getting what it is you work so hard for every day!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
