Hi! I am a womenswear fashion designer who has graduated from the Parsons School of Design, New York with a minor in Creative Entrepreneurship and is currently working as a designer at 'Tanya Taylor'. Born and raised in Mumbai, India has immersed me with an appreciation for design, particularly for the exquisite textiles and meticulous artisanal craftsmanship that I was exposed to early on while living there.
It was this fascination with design that inspired me to pursue my education in fashion. My experience through my education overseas has lent me invaluable exposure and a global outlook, equipping me with not only an array of skills, but critical thinking techniques that have often helped me bring a unique perspective to the table. During the course of my studies, I have had some incredible opportunities to work with renowned fashion brands like 'Ralph Lauren’, ‘Oscar de la Renta’ and ‘Derek Lam’.
I want to use fashion to give back to the communities that I care about and bring to the forefront the ancient green practices of my country, while telling the story of the humble craftsman. I want to give him visibility, opportunity and credibility and empower him economically by creating a sustainable ecosystem. My design ideology is to incorporate ‘Evolved design thinking, with Ancient ways of making’ in order to make clothing that is both fashion forward and energy efficient. I am a designer who aspires to make beautiful, relevant and responsible clothing for a complex and ever changing fashion industry, having a global voice yet using a language that is my own.
