Tell us something about your background.
I graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia. My unique design philosophy found great representation with celebrities and fashionistas through personal styling, shows at fashion weeks and collections at chic boutiques in India, Australia and other countries. Today, I am an established Australian-Indian designer label that specializes in high-end western couture and pręt for men and women.
How and when did you decide that you wanted to be a Fashion Designer?
When I was in year 10th standard I was into fine arts and wanted to be an artist. I realised my second love was clothes and that would fetch me a better living; so I opted for fashion though my father wanted me to be an architect. However he supported me regardless.
What was the first piece of clothing you ever designed?
The first piece of clothing I designed is my sister's wedding outfit. I was very nervous but it turned out to be amazing. It was very good considering I was not even trained to be a designer then.
