Everyone was always complimenting my style both locally and internationally.
They loved how deeply I understood fashion and came up with a good style which anyone can create and be comfortable for any occasion and any season because style is eternal.
It has been more than 3 years since I started posting style tips and style ideas on Instagram.
I could get random messages from strangers and also some of my friends who wanted help in choosing the best outfit choice for a certain occasion.
And how to style and that's how I discovered my interest in fashion and image consultancy.

It’s a matter of understanding the rules of styling."

Personally, I like to show versatility. I cherish all styles I like to make it all my own, unique, simple but significant."
The sky is the limit for Mike.
