“Art and design is an essential part of everyday life. The elements of art help you to express yourself physically through the structure and development of a design and mentally through the overall idea and attitude of the product. It is important for me to express both of these aspects through a criteria that is not only creative but also mind challenging. Not only is fashion my passion, but it is also a field that requires a vision in originality, business, and arithmetic. Fashion is a trend that will never go out of style.”
