A word of advice you would like to pass on to women professionals who wish to pursue same career as you?
I would like women to be in this profession because in this profession, any woman who has a good fashion sense, passion and class can design. All you need is a little passion and color sense that you can work with and make your way into this. Once you have some knowledge of design you will also understand how to enhance the ideas and concepts that you have always thought of, ideas that will make great dresses one day. Taking this profession up and entering into the vast professional world was a challenge with two young daughters but I believe it is because of the fact that I am a mother that I understand responsibilities better. Women have great power and a natural tendency to accomplish great tasks with delicacy and intricately.
