Teaching has always been a passion, pursuing it is more like an opportunity than choice. It’s been 4 blissful years in this industry and I can’t skip to agree that every student has been a teacher to me. I, co-founder of the Mumbai Fashion Academy am happy and proud to have empowered more than 1500 women. It’s never too late to begin, so let’s create some sass, shower around some love like confetti and let the designs do the talking!
Creating something artistic is what makes me happy all the time. But being from the science background and going on to become a teacher meant art took a backseat. But that could not stop me from being creative ad I would always take out time for experimenting new art forms. Finally i quit my job and started taking workshops at different art studios and creating hand painted, handcrafted products.
