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.
