About Me

I'm a 21 year old, born in the city of Amritsar, located in Northern India. I grew up in Mussoorie, a small town nestled in the peaks of the Himalayan mountains where I went to a boarding school called Woodstock. From the relaxed pace of this town that I called my home for 9 years, I moved on to the bustling city of New York to pursue my undergraduate degree at the Parsons School of Design, where I am currently a senior. 

Over time, my interests in the fashion industry have evolved from simply scrolling through seasonal collections to a vast interest in the work that goes on behind the scenes varying from production, sales and marketing while also keeping in mind my passion for the environment and social responsibility. With over 3 years of experience in marketing, sales and branding, I am constantly looking for new opportunities in the field of creative businesses. In particular, areas such as catalyzing innovation, strategic design solutions, buying and merchandizing as well as sustainability and supply chain management.

I believe that the 21st century is driven by design – from augmented reality to smart buildings, the need of the hour seems to be design oriented towards an intelligent and sustainable future which is why I decided to major in Strategic Design and Management. This program has helped open my perspectives on real-world strategy, sustainability, management, leadership, entrepreneurship, and design innovation and research. Further, attending a climate change panel at the United Nations, as well as experiencing the buzz of New York Fashion Week instilled in me a zest for contemporary sustainable design. 

Over the past year, I attended an exchange program at the Parsons School of Design in Paris, France. By being a part of the Parsons Paris experience, I was able to immerse myself in design ideologies that shape what people around the world wear. Living in Paris, a cosmopolitan fashion capital, I was able to facilitate my growth and understanding of the various dynamics of fashion entrepreneurship. Compared to the concrete jungle of New York, I truly enjoyed the historic culture that Paris has to offer.
