What made you want to become a fashion designer?

This is an age of modernization and with all the upcoming brands and designers , I wanted to pursue this field as my career. I myself have a passion of dressing up well so why not help this world dress up well?

What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?

The favorite part of my being a fashion designer is basically my customers, I am a very customer oriented designer, when I see people dressing up or wearing my self – designed garments , I feel pride to find them liking my choice and styling . If they feel happy, I feel happy too.

What is your main inspiration behind your current collection?

My inspiration of my current collection is just to make a difference in the market . I like to take the road which is less travelled by and watch people implementing it too.

Can you tell us anything about any upcoming/future collections?

My upcoming collection is named as ‘SUMMER FROST’ . it is basically a concept of tie and dye merged with the best of fabrics and pastel shades giving out an elegant summerish look to the pretty includes- jumpsuits, maxi gowns, peplumtops,etc.

If you were to re-design a wardrobe for any past bollywood movie,
which one would it be and why?

The movie I would like to rectify the wardrobe for was queen stared by Kangana Ranaut. I would like to do it because of the storyline, her freedom that is shown in the movie does not match with the outfits she wore , they were really dull , I would have made them look more bright and quirky as she was new to the outside world.

If you had a choice to work with any designer in the world, who would
it be and why?

If I had to choose to work with a designer , it would be ‘ Tarun Tahiliani’. Firstly, he is also on the same road that is travelled very rarely, he makes a lot of experiments on his collection and also does not walk in the same queue with other designers for which I look up to him, secondly, his beautiful heavy handmade embroideries on the wedding collection , his plain yet stylishly stitched western wear, etc. makes me get truly inspired to grow as a sole designer and also to work with him. This is not enough to tell about this extraordinary personality, apart from designing, being a Wharton graduate , tarun has grown his business and brand presence in a holistic way. Except for an excellent designing he does, he has also diversified into areas like interiors, jewelery. Floral, etc which is very inspiring for me. Hence , he is am all round designer.
