What made you venture into fashion designing?

I have always loved to sew and design my own clothes. I decided to join Fashion College after my higher secondary education. I took part in Nepal Fashion Week in 2009 which launched my career and opened the gates for many opportunities.

How do you see yourself growing as a designer?

My very first collection consisted of white Western wedding gowns which were showcased at the Nepal Fashion Week 2009. I remember it was one of the proudest moments of my life as my outfits were featured on the front page of a newspaper. Over the years I have learnt a lot. In terms of my designs, I have matured in many aspects such as technique and creativity.

What is your current obsession?

I would say it’s more of a fascination; I have always been intrigued by nature and spiritual elements. Nature never fails to inspire me and spark my creative energy.

What have you planned for your 2018 collection?

I am working with natural fabrics and trendy colours for my 2018 collection. Most probably I’ll be fusing together classic conversational prints with pastel colours and sequins.
