Nilu Yuleena Thapa lives and breathes fashion. As a former Fashion Editor and now a full-time blogger, the 26-year-old Bangalore resident is not interested in following trends. It is her unique style that has helped her gain a major fan following.
Why did you call your blog Big Hair Loud Mouth?
I felt that the name should describe the person I am, as well as what my blog was going to be about. My signature is my ever changing hairstyle and my choice of bold lip colour.
How would you describe your style?
I would say my style leans more towards chic and edgy. I’m very choosy about what I wear and the fabric and the tailoring. I don’t run after what is coined as the “trending must-haves.”
How do you incorporate Indian fashion into your everyday wear?
I’m blessed to be a citizen of a country with such a rich culture and heritage with handlooms and jewelries born from the different states each telling their own story. India is a country of colours and prints and I try to incorporate something that is Indian made paired with western outfits to create a fusion.
Why did you choose a career in fashion and what did your family think of that choice?
After I started blogging, I realized I had never felt more alive in my life; hence I resigned from a technical job of three years to give my all to the fashion industry. My family, luckily for me, couldn’t have been more supportive. They have been giving me a much required push, more than what I had expected, to find happiness in what I love to do.

What are your top five style must-haves?
A beautiful scarf, a pair of sunglasses, a watch, a great pair of stilettos preferably black and a classy handbag.
