I am a young, self-motivated person who has had the opportunity to gain diverse work experience, throughout and after my academic career in India and the UK. I have worked with international brands like Max Mara, Selfridges, Amazon, Flying Tiger, All Saints and boutique ones like Papersmiths, Fizzy Goblet and 431-88. My studies, previous internships and recent assignments during my placement year have helped me hone my focus to fashion and beauty. Beyond fashion, I have a keen interest in aesthetics - even in packaging, interiors, travel and culinary arts, all of which I regularly follow.
