Dentist Vishal Sharma’s fashion choices have stood out since the sixth grade, when he wore his first pair of penny loafers. “I was the first person I knew to have them,” he says. “Clearly shoes were first and foremost in my mind from a fairly young age.” With a personality as vibrant as his sock collection, he enjoys wearing something different every day and keeps his eye on the runways for inspiration. His most memorable outfits tend to include a “conversation piece,” such as a patterned scarf or a striking piece of jewellery, pulled together with a well-tailored suit. By dressing up, Sharma hopes to convey the same confidence he aims to instill in his patients. “A vibrant or well put-together outfit conveys a lot of positivity, and it’s the same thing with a smile,” he says.
