Create & Cultivate Team Q + A | Neha Kumar
We asked the Create & Cultivate team a few questions, read below to get to know:
NEHA KUMAR - CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
Q: MONDAYS ARE TOUGH NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LOVE YOUR JOB. WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO MONDAY LOOK?
I have a new baby at home who is currently sleeping in my room so I'm usually dressing in the dark when I'm getting ready in the morning. I will usually grab a dress or a pair of jeans with a nice top.
Q: WHEN HOSTING CREATE & CULTIVATE EVENTS, HOW DO YOU DECIDE ON AN OFF-SITE OUTFIT THAT WILL KEEP YOU COMFORTABLE AND FEELING GOOD?
I usually opt for a sleeveless long dress that looks polished and then have Nike's on my feet. It can get hot on-site and we are moving around a lot so sneakers are key.
Q: WITH THE EVER-SHIFTING RULES OF OFFICE ATTIRE, WHAT DRESS CODE DOES THE CREATE & CULTIVATE OFFICE FOLLOW OR NOT FOLLOW?
It's definitely a fun casual start-up vibe dress attire. Just before and after an event, you will see the team in more comfortable attire.
Q: IT'S PRESENTATION DAY! YOU'VE BEEN PREPARING FOR THIS MEETING FOR WEEKS, WHAT IS THE POWER OUTFIT THAT MAKES YOUR FEEL CONFIDENT IN FRONT OF THE EXEC TEAM?
Pencil skirt and a fitted blouse.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL OUTFIT THAT CAN TAKE YOU FROM WORK TO HAPPY HOUR?
Solid color sleeveless dresses. They are great because you can wear them with closed-toes shoes and a thin cardigan at work, then change into sandals and toss off the cardigan. I like to keep my core wardrobe as simple as possible and I can style it up or down with accessories.
Q: AS THE TEMPERATURE RISES IN LA THIS SUMMER, WHAT WARDROBE ESSENTIALS KEEP YOU COOL AT WORK?
In L.A. we definitely need layers. Depending on who is controlling the thermostat that day it may be cool or warm.
Q: WHAT ARE THE TOP 5 BRANDS AROUND THE CREATE & CULTIVATE OFFICE RIGHT NOW?
Equipment, Theory, Cuyana, Who What Wear, Madewell.
