As we drive to the sea port at Bremerhaven, from Hamburg, Germany, we see white smoke spewing out of factories, and windmills dotting the wintry landscapes, indicating the use of clean energy. We are an entourage of writers, publicists and bloggers from all around the world – Japan, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Israel, Panama, with me alone representing India, here to experience the inaugural sail of the Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest innovative ship – the Norwegian Encore. Once on board, we are lucky to have this bespoke hotel-at-sea to ourselves, (it cost US$1 billion to make) as guests are only officially to be on board the next day. This means no queues to experience the smorgasbord of entertainment options. This cruise ship features the world’s longest race track at sea, at…

Travel essential(s) you can’t do without... “Yes, I’ve got a few customs. I travel a lot, I spend about half the year on the road and I have for several years now. I live out of my suitcase. I like to take a note with me that I carry around – something that my son gives me, so I have a little piece of him. It could be a note or even a toy of his. A Bible, my necklace that I wear everywhere, a Rubik’s cube and my laptop.” What’s the strangest place that you’ve ever travelled to? “Ooh… I went and saw these amazing pyramids in Mexico – San Miguel de Allende – they blew my mind!” Tips to avoid jet lag… “You’ve just got to roll with it.

Healing through fashion... “starts with colour. Wear your favourite colours to start the process of healing.” Matching colours/prints/styles to moods... “is essential to having an authentic life.” Following fads and trends... “can be hurtful and helpful, depending on why you are following that fad or trend.” How to deal with ‘I have nothing to wear’ syndrome ... “I’d suggest, start by determining how you would like to feel or how you currently feel. And dress as such.” Dressing as per age... “is a notion that should not exist. You should dress how you feel. Your age maybe 52, but your mental age maybe 25. If you feel good wearing what you wore at 25, you should wear it.” Sustainability in the fashion world... “is crucial to the next generation’s existence.” The role of social media in…

At the young age of 30, you are the pioneer of fashion psychology in the world and The New York Times has hailed you as “the dress doctor”... “It feels surreal at times.

But then, everyone who attains a certain degree of success, experiences a certain level of self-doubt. But, it’s a bit nerve-wracking because I consider Naomi Campbell and Priyanka Chopra to be global fashion icons. I feel I need to do more work!” Dawnn, how would you describe your own personal sense of fashion? “I would describe it as a glamorous minimalist. I do not believe in having two of the same shirts or pants. I believe in knowing every piece inside…
