You know those rare people you meet at a fashion party but end up feeling like best friends forever with? No, you won't. Such meetings do not exist. Unless of course that rare person is Gopalika Virmani
She is as warm as your favourite summer day and always ready with that disarming smile. 
Stylist, digital video director and chief of media production company MMC World, we love the way Gopa (as we like to call her) just is. Effortless, super-funny and always looking like we want to. 
Gopalika is wearing the Rainforest Shift Dress.

What do you do?
I work as a fashion and art director and I head a company called MMC World.

Minimal and clean cuts is all my outfits should ever say about me.

My black pants - phew i just realised how boring that sounds but its the absolute truth!

"The Jodi Lush Wrap dress - Whether I wore it with pants or without it made me feel free and worked at the same time! and that fabric!"

What item of clothing makes you feel most like yourself? Why?
The Jodi Lush Wrap dress - Whether I wore it with pants or without it made me feel free and worked at the same time! and that fabric! 

How does working in fashion influence your daily style?
It makes me want to be ready each day and when I say ready I mean in my own way like I never want to be seen wearing something thats not minimal and clean. Though my style does get predictable at times but its like my uniform. The colours might change but my cuts never change.

The Cos Store Instagram Page. 
The Jungalow Instagram Page.
The Randi Mageli Instagram Page.
