Defying Stereotypes: Fashion Designer and Makeup Artist Vir Shetey

Levi’s recently launched their latest collection of jeans for women with an interesting promise; there’s a pair of jeans in this line that will fit you so well, it’ll seem like they were made for you – regardless of size, shape, or identity.

He’s only 23, but he’s – how do I say this without sounding like a cliché? – a bit of a role model, to me anyway; a quiet, composed column of confidence in what can be a bit of a judgemental world.

Oh, and he can wear the hell out of a pair of jeans. Ahead, we caught up with him while on a recent trip to Bombay via Tokyo and London.
