            As a fashion designer, I love everything beautiful, unusual and innovative, and enjoy creating bold visual statements through my work. I use every kind of technique or skill when developing a collection, be it laser cutting, digital printing, innovative tailoring and draping or new materials and color combinations.

             My style is reflected throughout my projects, and it comes out as being playful, geometric, colourful and a bit elegant too. I prefer to focus on silhouettes, and along with that I often use fabric manipulation techniques and sometimes embellishments. 

            My main interest is having a high level of quality in design and manufacture. I keep a close look at the standards of craftsmanship and I enjoy delivering a high quality, exclusive product. 

 

 

              I have graduated from the University for the Creative Arts with a First Class BA (Hons) Fashion degree. My graduate collection has been appreciated on various platforms, including The Houses of Parliament in London, Graduate Fashion Week, London Fashion Week and Oxford Fashion Week. The collection is a cubist interpretation of the “Arlecchino” from the Italian Commedia dell'arte. I have researched Picasso’s paintings of the stage performers, and his piece entitled 'Three musicians' was the most inspiring to create the final looks as moving cubist installations on a body.

             Previously, I have studied Fashion Folio and Orientation to Art and Design for one and a half years year at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, in London, and for two years I have completed certificates for Fashion Design and Merchandising in New Delhi, India, where I have acquired an appreciation for colour and embroidery.
