A conversation with the man behind all the gorgeous ladies on the ramp revealed to us the journey of a man from a young student from Manipur to one of the most sought after celebrity stylist. Robert Naorem takes us on a tour of his journey to success.

The idea of fashion as a career was not acceptable to Robert's parents so he pursued his studies in BSc in Bangalore. Opportunity arrived for young Robert when he went for styling for the inter college fest.
