RK : Do you see yourself as an "Blogger & influencer", and if so , what does that mean to you?

Shaswati Biswas : Yes I do. I just want to create my own style, own content and want to make my own story in my way. I always try to do something unique. Everyone have their own and unique style, and that makes him/her different from others.

RK : When did you start blogging/ social media and was your motivation for getting started ?

Shaswati Biswas : To be very honest, I started it very casually... but then I thought that my contents can somehow influence someone, and I started doing it quite regularly. My parents and friends always motivate me. Then the Brands started reaching me and my followers started liking my contents. I am always thankful to them...

RK : You have an exceptionally unique look. Where does your style savvy come from, and where do you get your inspiration?

Shaswati Biswas : I am taking it as a compliment. Thank you so very much. Well, as I said earlier, I just want to create my own style statement. According to me, Style is not only a fashion statement or what you wear or how you wear, it is how you present yourself in front of the world.

You should be confident as well as down to earth to create something distinctive and that makes you unique. My parents inspire me a lot in that case. All thanks goes to them and also my followers inspire me to do new things again and again...Lots of love for them too.

RK : In your opinion, how important are ethical standards for the fashion bloggers & influencers?

Shaswati Biswas : First of all, you should be true to yourself. Ethics is the soul of your content. Influencing people is to lead the audience towards a positive direction. I never compromise with it and no one should. I try to guide people in a right way. That’s the MANTRA to grow organically. Money shouldn't overpower your morality.

RK : Where do you see Yourself five years down the lane? Any future plan?

Shaswati Biswas : Actually I don’t see that much far. But I try to sustain in this industry as much as I can and will try to create unique stuffs as I am doing now rather will try to improve myself.
