How would you benchmark Indian fashion industry, globally?

India is now a recognised market around the globe. People follow and respect us for what we have to offer. There is so much of rich heritage and textiles which we have and globally people get only inspired by the same. So many of our designers showcase at international fashion weeks which in itself is a gain for us -that the world wants to see more and more from us.

How do you keep the work-life balance?

Well this is a tough one, but we try to take breaks now and then to refresh ourselves and be inspired. When you have a strong business partner and a strong team, it helps you creatively channel your thoughts to new ideas and concepts. And it also allows you take those breaks, since you know that work will not be affected since it’s in safe hands with your team 🙂


What advice will you give to young girls and boys who want to pursue their career in Fashion Designing ?

Be original and true to yourself. There is a lot of hard work and struggle involved in being a designer and if you take no shortcuts and put your complete dedication, there will be no stopping you.
