Boss Babe: Timur Gabriel Talks Menswear Fashion, Self-motivation and Harry Styles

Nothing can stop this stylista from wearing anything her heart desires, be it menswear or a figure-flaunting LBD.

Timur Gabriel, 22

Project Executive

Upbeat and friendly, what’s not to like about this fashionista? Timur easily lights up any room, not only her eye-catching style but also her witty personality. She believes catching style but also her witty personality. She believes that ‘strong’ and ‘independent’ are the key words to live by for every woman; and similarly, her sense of fashion is both daring and classy, “cos nothing’s more intimidating than a feminine woman who means business”, she quips.

When asked about her biggest style influencer, her answer – Harry Styles – may be a li’l surprising for some, but she loves his mix of eclectic and retro looks with that punch of nonchalant vibe. Scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll notice the two fashion items she is constantly sporting: borrowed-from-the-boys watches and hoop earrings. When asked about who or what motivates her to look her best every day, she exclaims, ” Me! I need to impress myself and feel good on a regular basis, or I’m going to lose my mojo!”

Currently working as a Project Executive in the Business Division at APW Bangsar, Timur would love to dip her toes in the fashion industry in the future. But at the moment, she is excited to pursue her Master’s Degree in Berlin later this year.
