Wardrobe: Samantha Shivani
We spent some time with the stunning Samantha Shivani, a Sydney girl with Indian heritage and her own edgy street style. Samantha was born in Australia, but she loves expressing her Indian background in unique ways, particularly through fashion and dance.
"I feel most confident and like myself when I am able to dress up in unique outfits reflecting my background. Since before I can remember I have loved to do Bollywood Dancing, it is one of my passions. The intricate detailing on the costumes and dramatic makeup make me feel like an exotic goddess. It is a euphoric feeling and I feel absolutely free."
"Im a nature addict, I love going on adventures and discovering new and beautiful locations. I feel as if I'm in my element when I'm outside amongst nature. One of my favourite relaxation activities is to listen to music and just gaze out at an amazing view. It feels blissful."
