Sartorial, edgy and discerning in her tastes, Neha Sheth wears many hats with elan, literally.

Trained to be a left-brained analytical engineer at Stanford, Neha has not only been heading her IT company – Musikaar with her sharp business acumen but also has fluidly travelled through the finer aspects of life with her creative pursuits. A legit purveyor of fashion and style and Founder & CEO of Ciceroni, she leaves no stone unturned to unveil latest discoveries on the platform. With 25 years of experience in IT industry across Silicon valley and having worked with various start-ups in the sector, Neha comes across as a visual aberration among the stereotypical IT professionals.

Elegant and poised at one moment, edgy and bohemian in another, her fashion choices refuse to be bracketed, much like her. Each collectible in her wardrobe narrates tiny tales of different cultures, traditions and craftsmanship. A fitness enthusiast and an art lover, Neha is an inspiration to the millennials with her fashion, fitness and business goals.
