A Day in the Life of a Fashion Designer

A New Year and a head buzzing with ideas! Happily, I wound up December with lots of travel, movies, good books to  recoup my energies and bring back that mojo! Life as a fashion designer can seem glamorous and exciting to those outside of the industry. Although at times this is true, just like all other professions, the work days are mostly filled with hard work, stress, deadlines and long hours. And then — a school reunion in my favourite part of India, the North East, opened up the possibility to travel to Meghalaya — the land of clouds! Voila! The magnificient Maswmai caves of Cherapunji was inspiration for my next collection!! My sources of inspiration are ample, ranging from my studio’s location, to visiting new places to Amitabh Bachchan’s latest song "piddly"! Am watching Big B, Amitabh sitting on a WC and crooning --- "Pyaar Ke Saaye Mein Sab Piddly Hai Yaar! Even this is inspirational and intoxicating like there’s no tomorrow! “Nashe ke saaye mein sab piddly hain yaar!" That said, I firmly believe in my designs staying true to the original though and envision my label to be affordable and yet exclusive in telling the tale and use of local influences, this season and the next.

Sometimes having to satisfy a customer encourages me, as I can encapsulate my ideas, thoughts, plans
