Tell us about you. What do you do? What have you studied?

I am a graduate in fashion designing. I have previously worked in a garment factory for over 2 years as their senior designer. Currently I am a freelance fashion and graphic designer.

What sparked your interest in fashion designing?

Since childhood I was inclined towards fashion and clothing. I suppose I had just completed my class 10th boards when I decided to pursue fashion designing as a career.

What are your emotions when you see your sketch come to reality?

There is no better feeling in the world than to see my sketch come to life. It?s overwhelming to see someone wearing my design.

What's your design aesthetic?

My design aesthetic is to create something that is trendy and purposeful and at the same time provides comfort to the wearer.

What are your sources of inspiration?

My source of inspiration lies in the purpose of the garment. Besides that I take my inspiration from the fashion forecasts and trend follow ups.

How do you start to translate your inspiration into design?

I play with the silhouette of the inspiration into many twists and turns which gives me one perfect design for my sketch.

How do you keep yourself up to date with current and future trends?

I refer to various fashion magazines to stay up to date with the current trends apart from that I regularly follow fashion events and fashion designers.

Do you design with any one in mind? A muse?

When it comes to fashion a designer's muse is and must always be their customer.

Are there any types of styles that you avoid wearing? Tell us more about your style

I avoid wearing anything that I am not comfortable in. I think your style comes from your confidence. So if you are comfortable in your garment you are confident about it and that adds a style to it.

What is the biggest lesson that you have learned since you started designing?

Nothing comes our way easy and failure is the stepping stone towards success.

What is your dream project?

To build my own clothing line.

Other than designing, what are you most passionate about?

Cooking and baking.

How did you come to be part of the hashboosh community?

I came across Hashboosh through facebook advertisement feeds which caught my interest in it.

What do you love most about

It?s a great platform for anyone who is passionate about designing and wants to build a career in it. It gives a fair opportunity to budding designers across the world to come under one roof and share their ideas.
