How I Became A Fashion Designer So Young

As a full-time fashion designer at a well-reputed women’s boutique in Jaisalmer, I find myself at the right place, doing the right thing.

Ten years ago, I only had the dream of becoming a successful couturier. Two years later, I aspired to join an international brand as a fashion designer. Exactly five years later, I got a breakthrough.

Hence, I feel, there is and should be no end to dreams as they particularly lead one to somewhere safe. When I began chasing my dreams, ten years ago, the journey was not as easy.

As a teenager, I faced and overcame my own challenges. Tackling studies and my passion for fashion designing was not a simple task either. Though, I passed that phase, with great efforts. I would like to share a bit of my career story here.

Over a decade ago, I began by coming up with my own ideas and innovations. Whenever my friends or family needed tips on dressing up, I would be more than glad to guide them.

I later went on to convert these abstract but beautiful designs into sketches using a simple A4 size paper and pencil. These designs were off course hidden from the rest of my family, and hence I drafted a portfolio where I saved all these sensitive works.

I knew it was too early but I had to learn about fashion. I started with checking fashion websites, magazines, newspapers, etc. for latest designs and fashion updates. It also gives a fair idea about how the business works.

Thank God for the sewing machine at home. With a little help from my elder sisters, and a bit of online research, I got myself readied for clothes sewing. At first its way tough but as you get to learn more of sewing, it gets more enjoyable.

Soon my work was being observed and as I was gaining mastery at it, people in my surroundings as well as my family and friends started noticing my work.

With my parents’ permission, I finally gained an admission at a popular fashion designing school in Delhi, where I officially have to learn the basics of fashion designing and rest is history! I hope it inspires those young teenagers who aim to become a fashion designer.
