To live and to create

Born and raised in Lucknow, India, a lot of my personality and values are influenced by my beautiful and culturally rich city (especially my love for good food). In 2014, I came to the US to pursue my undergraduate degree in Business and as much as I loved business, I also loved fashion and therefore decided to switch gears in 2019 and do an Associate's degree in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design, NY. This was a great decision because it gave me knowledge and skills needed to thrive in the fashion/design industry and I am so glad to have made that choice. Now I have both, fashion design skills and business acumen and hope to use these to make a positive impact on people.
As a designer, I am intrigued by the duality of Fashion, whether that is the amalgamation of fashion genres or the blend of functionality and aesthetics. In my designs, I want to pursue “it is more than what meets the eye” ideology and want to explore the transcendent nature of fashion and how it evolves as the society evolves.
