By: Ekta Mukhi Alpa Rama: Blogger, Personal Shopper, Fashion Consultant are some of the common titles she holds today. The 25-year-old, who was born in Paris to parents of Indian origin, currently resides in the States (Florida). Her diverse background being the key source of her inspiration has played a significant ingredient in her creativity, and has thus given rise to her identity as “The Parisian in America”. Alpa has always had a keen eye for fashion allowing her to be creative and stylish with her wardrobe. It all began when she moved to the U.S. and was constantly questioned about her style and asked to offer her advice for others on how to dress themselves. This is what initiated her blog page to share ideas and outfits of the day. With a major in marketing from the ESLSCA Business School in Paris, and a creative edge in style, Alpa successfully incorporates both and today she is the proud co-founder of Osiyan, a trendy Parisian clothing, jewellery and accessories label. Her style is almost infectious; she manages to continue inspiring followers everyday to be original and creative with their look. As Rachel Zoe once said “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”. Alpa’s dressing style speaks a thousand words. Fashion and style is often misunderstood by many who have no interest in it. It is not to make a woman more beautiful, but rather to reassure her of her confidence.
