Tell us about the path you took to get to where you are today.

I moved to Vancouver about 10 years ago from Mumbai. I started off as a sales associate in a bridal boutique and then I completed a course in fashion designing from Blanche Macdonald in Vancouver. I have participated in some fashion events in Vancouver and have been designing clothes for my clients as per their requirements. I showcased my designs at the Vancouver Fashion Week recently.  I feel the path I took had several roadblocks along the way however now I am reaping rewards of my hardwork as I am getting recognition for my designs.
