The strength and style of Deepti Chandak
Let's get to know better the well-known Dubai-based content creator, founder of Luxpresso Magazine
How did you become one of the best-known and highly regarded content creators in the Middle East?
I started in 2012, it was still very new. I guess I got the first mover advantage and since then, I have been very consistent with my content. I still see that people who were following me in the first week are still around. I am who I am because of the love I got from them.
What motivated you to enter the fashion industry?
I wasn’t a fashion person. Fashion happened when I was employed in the luxury fashion industry as a media manager in Dubai. My boss, Karima Liusie, was my mentor and she inspired me a lot. I learned a lot from her about fashion and also how to conduct one’s life with dignity and poise. She set a great example to maintain work-life balance.
Dubai and Fashion in 3 must-see addresses.
I love visiting the Dubai Mall to have a look at what’s happening in the fashion world. If I know exactly what I want to shop then I go to the Mall of the Emirates as it’s easy to navigate. I find D3 very interesting. Such a cool vibe!
Any collaboration you particularly enjoyed?
I was featured in the advertising campaign for Emaar and Dubai mall and that campaign played at The Dubai Mall Screens, Reel Cinemas and Emirates In-flight Entertainment for many months. Spain Tourism campaign was brilliant. I also enjoyed working with Malta Tourism, Mauritius, Brunei, Philippines and my recent best was Slovakia. In the fashion category my best collaboration has been the watches: Zenith, Hublot, Tag Heuer and Bomberg in Switzerland.
How did your Luxpresso Magazine come about?
When the world was stuck in lockdown, I used my time on starting my dream magazine - Luxpresso. It’s a definitive guide to the luxury lifestyle in the world with features on fashion, people, design, accessories, travel, arts and culture.
