I was under two Spanish designers of Oca-loca a well renowned kids footwear brand in Spain . I learnt sketching , pattern cutting and physical leather cutting.

How paris inspired me

+

This fall I headed to Paris , to accompany my father on a business fair and fortuitously I found my inspiration in a Yves Saint Laurent exhibit. The one garment I found captivating was a long black suit with a knee skirt . The fact that it had buttons from the collar all the way to the bottom was rather intriguing and unseen at that point in time. Although this collection of Yves Saint Laurent was disparaged by many and lauded only by a few , I found the combination of the black coat with pink and red sequences on it attractive and unique . I learnt that very few people have the nerve to go against the grain and those come to be the people who find their own beautiful in the ugly. His present collection and his collection of 1971, La Collection Du Scandale inspired me to express through merchandises.
