Dubai’s style stalwarts and fashion influencers of Indian-origin that you need to follow

Indian-origin bloggers and fashion entrepreneurs everywhere are making a name for themselves. From Masoom Minawala Mehra creating waves on the Cannes red carpet to Diipa Büller-Khosla adorning international magazine covers, they are here to bless our feed with a daily dose of fashion. These fashion influencers and content creators are introducing us to the glamour of the UAE with a pinch of India.

As we curate a list of our favourite Dubai-based fashionistas, it also unleashes the question of what these content creators offer to us, except an eclectic Instagram feed. Apart from a rather colourful portrayal of the lives of the UAE diaspora, they also introduce us to places and people that are an intrinsic part of the Dubai world. From fashion designers, places to shop and restaurants, take a peek into their exciting lives in Dubai, which gives us reason enough to visit now.
