How would you describe your personal style?
I am deeply influenced by my country. I get very inspired by its arts, craft and history – India in general. I love to play with colors, the more the better. Neon pink tops the list of my favorite shades. I like to amalgamate the traditional Indian sensibility with futuristic designs. I’m very partial to avant-garde structure and shapes.
When did you develop your style?
When I was at the National Institute of Fashion Technology in Delhi, I was certain that I liked working with color and experimenting with
different shades. Metal work and shine also inspired me, hence my love for all things gold and glittery. Over a period of time I was introduced to new cultures, countries, and people. My style has matured and design sensibility evolved to what it is today. This is just the beginning; I feel I still have a lot to learn.
What was the greatest influence on your style?
As I mentioned earlier, India has been my biggest influence. Every Indian is constantly exposed to color and surface textures from an early age - Not only in the form of clothing but in architecture, film, religion, print as well. You can see this influence in my designs.
