Meet the Designer
Growing up in India, it was not my childhood dream to pursue fashion as a career. However, during my school years, I felt drawn to designing and draping. My mother has always been my inspiration and is the reason for me to pursue design as my career. Studying abroad, I have been able to look at different cultures from various perspectives. I have seen a change in fashion, and I wish to adapt to this change by juxtaposing designs and ideas from multiple cultures. I grew up seeing big silhouettes and beautiful traditional embellishments. These aspects of special occasion fashion made me want to choose it as my specialization. My design aesthetic is also very traditional, but luxurious at the same time. For me haute couture is fashion. It is a place of freedom, emotion, imagination, creativity, and experimentation, and that is exactly how I approach it.
