What or who inspired you to go into fashion?

No one as such inspired me to get into fashion. I know a lot of my contemporaries who were inspired by Hollywood, Bollywood or a certain personality and that’s how they discovered their passion for fashion.For me, it was my genuine love for clothes, colours and textures that made me want to do what I do today.I came from a family where my father and one of my brothers were chartered accountants, and another brother into the construction business, so I followed in step behind them.I studied commerce as a student, but my heart was not in it. I was always interested in clothes, and used to be a stylist for friends and family. After a lot of persuasion, my family supported me and let me go ahead with my desire to pursue fashion. I underwent formal training after that, following which I worked for a few years and now I am where I am today. What's your biggest aspiration?

My biggest aspiration is for my brand to be recognized globally. I have been around and seen the world, and now I want the world to see my brand!
