Esha Kalra


When we first spotted Esha at London Fashion Week, we assumed she was either a blogger or fashion industry professional. However, by trade, Esha is a qualified solicitor who just happens to love fashion. Here we find out a bit more about her.


What’s your ideal Friday night out ?

Dinner with friends at Zuma.

Who/what is your inspiration?

It sounds cliche, but my Mum. She was a bit like me at my age, and loves her fashion, so I’ve grown up around it.

Describe your style in three words:

Polished and classy, yet edgy at the same time. 

How trendy can you make Law, given the huge amounts of time it must take up?

There’s always time for fashion, especially with social media these days. It’s so easy to showcase your passion with blogging and websites, which makes it simpler and faster to find inspiration from others as well. 

What got you into fashion?

I’ve been into fashion as far back as I can remember, and grew up just loving it because my Mum was always into it herself. The artistry is something that has always fascinated me. 

Where’s the most fashionable place/city you’ve ever been, and why?

Italy. Even the streets are just so inspiring, no matter where you are.

Favourite trend at the moment?

High rise jeans and structured jackets; Balmain does it best right now. 

If you could wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Balmain blazer

If you could be successful in another profession, what would it be?


Best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Just be yourself. Try anything else, and you’ll get caught out eventually. 

What has your been your most rewarding experience/biggest success in recent years?

I think graduating and becoming a solicitor in 2013 has to be one of the biggest, most rewarding experiences I’ve had lately. 

What’s the most precious thing in your wardrobe?

My Birkin bag. It was a gift from my Mum, so it’s very sentimental. 

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Crisps. Walkers Cheese and Onion crisps. 

You’re on a tight budget and you want to get some new clothes. Where are you going to get them/shop?


Favourite trend of SS16?

Anything Balmain. The structures and the way art is created through their clothes is like nothing I’ve seen before.

Any big goals for next year? Where do you want to be this time next year?

To have something I’ve built and created myself, and be successful at it, ideally in property.

How do you keep up with current fashion? 

I love keeping up with bloggers through Instagram. I think Kendall’s great, and I love Nicole Richie’s style.

You can go back to any stage in your life, where would you go?

Definitely to when I was 12/13. There was no responsibility or obligation to anything then, and you could just enjoy things and be yourself.
