Hi, My name is Shloka Narang
Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak
I moved to London in 2012 from Mumbai, India and found myself living alone in a new city for the very first time in my life. In search of a way to make my mark in this new place but also to discover myself in a new society, I found that fashion was a language of it's own, allowing me to show who I am without having to say it. In this way, I found myself interested in the role of fashion in our everyday lives, beyond the ramp of a runway. With this passion and a search for a creative outlet, The Silk Sneaker was born. In this space, I look to share my take on fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle with you.
Often I am asked what categories my style. While I would leap at the opportunity to say "Classic with a twist", I've now understood what that really means. Drawing inspiration from high fashion; runways, magazine spreads, even the glitz and glamour of the silver screen (I am after all an ex film student), along with the trendiness of the high street, I like to land somewhere in between the two. To me, fashion is all about feeling luxurious. Luxury, in my view, is all about texture, fabric, comfort and ease but most of all luxury is about feeling confident in what you're wearing, regardless of where it is from.
The massive amount of positive feedback I received when I started TSS empowered me to be confident in my style. TSS aims to install that same sense of empowerment in my community of readers. I have had the opportunity to work with multiple brands including Isharya, Hush Homewear, Troy London, Nip + Fab, Na-kd Fashion and Misho Designs, just to name a few. I am always open to collaborations with brands who share a similar vision and I also love to hear form my readers, so feel free to shoot me an email or question if you have one.
