EXPERT OF DRAWING
Before final design, I work with the sketch. Visualization of ideas and then implement accordingly is one of the key tasks of a fashion designer.
I always think out of the box so that I generate new things, develop successful ideas and designs that actually push the market trends of fashionable cloth.
Trends in fashion are always changing which is part of our lifestyle. As a fashion designer, I keep an update of change in fashion trends around the world.
