Motivated by the wish to democratise fashion, Jainee Gandhi left a career in Human Resources and became an image consultant.
What’s your story?
I am a Postgraduate in Human Resources and decided to switch careers at 27, to become an Image Consultant.
What excites you most about your industry?
The power to democratise fashion for everyone and the confidence that people get when they understand what their personal style is and how their wardrobe has to be a reflection of who they are and not a borrowed concept from anyone else.
What is your connection to Asia?
I was born in India and moved to Singapore with my family.
Favourite city in Asia for business and why?
India & Singapore. India for its sheer volume and Singapore for its ease to start a business.
What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
If you don’t ask, the answer will be NO. It’s very small, but if applied well it will give your business the chance to grow.
Who inspires you?
So many people. My cook’s motivation to hustle and have a side business in catering, my dad’s hustle to start a business just a few days after he had his bypass surgery.
What have you learnt recently that blew you away?
I am venturing into the field of e-marketing my courses and the sheer depth of knowledge that is required for a digital marketing agency blew my mind.
If you had your time again, what would you do differently?
I would start my e-course a bit sooner.
How do you unwind?
hahha, I love reading serial killer murder mysteries!
Favourite Asian destination for relaxation? Why?
Any beach location
