The job

I love the opportunities for creativity and innovation that my job enables. Trends and techniques keep changing in the beauty business and I love keeping up with international advancements and combining them with our ancient heritage. I don’t hate anything about my work, except that I keep wishing there were more than 24 hours in a day!

The weekdays

My day includes discussions and meetings with various departments — from production, international expansion, public relations, to packaging and promotions. There are often foreign buyers to meet or media interviews. I also keep some time aside for answering important emails. I consider teamwork, meetings and feedback most important of all. A thousand ideas and thoughts still crowd my mind when my day ends.

The weekend

I often spend weekends at our herb and flower farm near Delhi. For me, it is a retreat. It is a place where I am close to nature. I also love the feeling of expanse, the green world outside or sitting under the canopy of stars at night.

The toys

I love my iPad — it’s an amazing device.

The logos

I am loyal to the Shahnaz Husain brand and Louis Vuitton accessories, especially its handbags.
