5 Indian Influencers to Follow
Obviously is international, and the Obviously family includes brands and people from all over the world. We spend a lot of time spotting trendsetting content creators from all seven continents. Here are five incredible influencers in India you should follow right now. You’re welcome.
There’s fashion that’s comfortable and fashion that makes a statement. And sometimes, rarely, there’s fashion that does both. Shikha Mehta (@thekneehighsocks_) is a stylist, image consultant, and fashion blogger from Mumbai, India. Her brand of laid-back playfulness mixed with chic sophistication is the perfect dose of positivity to brighten your day. She manages to stay impeccably on-trend without taking herself too seriously, a refreshing change in a saturated and competitive landscape. Plus, check out the composition of that shot. What’s not to love?
Aishwarya Sharma (@figuramoda) describes herself as a fashion activist. We describe her as undeniably awesome. On her blog, she writes about fashion, beauty, and mental health with a candor that is both raw and refreshing. She talks honestly about her love for fashion on the one hand and the toxic elements of the fashion industry on the other. And she does it in a nuanced way that communicates clearly: there is no contradiction here, only an opportunity for exploration. It’s like if your best-dressed friend was also your therapist.
Ever wanted to jump in a caravan and travel around India? After following Sharanya Iyer (@trulynomadly) you just might give it a try. In the short-term, however you can make the journey vicariously through her Instagram. She’s braved flat tires, missed turns, and even a few tears to bring us closer to some of India’s most remote regions, connecting with the people she meets along the way and sharing their stories. She is an expert traveler with a sincere curiosity about the world. And it goes without saying that her photos are lovely!
We adore a man who knows how to dress, and Praveen Kumar (@thevoguemen) is a menswear master. His style is modern, refined, and masculine while still being achievable for the average guy. Plus, his mustache is on-point. Follow him for some serious style inspo from casual to formal and even the occasional traditional Indian fashion.
