Fashion for Royals is a Fashion, Makeup and Lifestyle blog lovingly put together by Archana Dhankar — fashionista by passion and digital marketer by profession who currently calls London her home.

Up Close & Personal with Me.


To me fashion is not about following the latest fad everyone’s talking about. I believe fashion is a powerful statement of personal style YOU make when you tune in to your intuitive sense about what makes you look and feel fabulous —  and that’s where I come in the picture.

I bring you tips, advice and reviews that you can effortlessly adapt to you individual style.

Though I’ve forever been passionate about dressing well, there was a time when as a young girl out of college I struggled with my fashion choices. And that’s how the idea for this blog took shape — to help other women who want to look great but could use a little practical guidance on how to go about it.

While my innate love for India’s culture reflects in my experiments with fashion, living in London has added a new global dimension to my sartorial sense. The unique combination lends itself to innovation and creativity in the way I dress.  And becoming a mom recently has only helped widen my perspective on effortless style. I personalise fashion trends to my taste and use fashion as a tool to enhance my life. And you can do it too!

Whether you are a next-gen woman who appreciates understated style with just the right notes of glamour and feminine charm, or someone gently blossoming into the woman she aspires to be — you’ll find plenty of inspiration here.

Come join me on a fascinating discovery of the latest in global makeup and fashion, and everything in between — infused with ideas that work for you.

Why the name Fashion For Royals?

Because at some point every woman carries a Cinderella dream in her heart — a dream where she magically transforms into a gorgeous princess with minimal effort. And I want to show you that it’s possible.
