Moving to India…
So when we moved to India, I decided to make a big change in my life and follow my passion (what a scary decision). I completed a fashion program with a goal to become a fashion designer. I really loved it. I learned so much about the process of creation and production behind clothes. I enjoyed the free spirit of being a fashion student. But the experience also opened my eyes about the business side of fashion design that I wasn’t sure was right for me yet.
“I believe the objects we own and clothes we wear tell an important story, our story.”
Finding my path…
I realized that I could reach and serve more people in a different way, through an online platform. I started to take notice of the Indian fashion market. This market is very young and I feel like there is a growing need for young Indian women to be more expressive & experimental. Most of the famous fashion blogs talk about fashion as it relates to the big cities (Paris, London, NY). In India, we have different needs and options. There is an increasing demand in prêt à porter from Indian designers & luxury fashion. That‘s why I created Surface 85. I want to showcase the growing fashion in India and offer my perspective. I am drawn to beautiful things and quality designs. I have great respect for designers and craftsmen.
I believe the objects we own and clothes we wear tell an important story, our story. Our clothes, our look, and our home all reflect who we are and the values we hold.
Starting Surface 85…
I want Surface 85 to be true to my values and always be current. I love to keep things minimal, but always interesting. I love to discover new designers and the story behind their creations. I also want to share my aesthetic in styling that I developed after many years of trial and error (trust me, you don’t want to see pictures!). Finding your style is like finding your true self. You feel beautiful, strong, confident, and comfortable inside and out. My goal is to empower each and every one of you to discover your true self, and I expect to learn even more from all of you.
