I think my ardency for art and ingenuity influenced me to wanting to become a fashion designer.
I’m very artistic since my childhood. I’ve been able to draw my imagination since the commencement. I used to have an urge to draw if I optically discerned something incipient. Initially, I used to draw only Portrait. But, that used to be only my imagination. I could not imitate anything. Not even now I could do it. I could just take some conception, but can’t copy equipollent. My imagination will always be present at drawings.
As I was growing up, I was developing an interest in origami. One fine day I tore a page from my notebook, folded it and cut in the shape of a frock. It looked so good to me that I commenced drawing the same shape on the paper. Then, I commenced descrying the pictures given in the books, especially female wearing saree and the style of drawing to engender a particular illusion. I commenced practicing the same and gradually, I found my own way of engendering illusions. I used to spend my leisure time in school on drawing and paintings.
Once upon a time in school, we had perpetual three free classes because two Teachers were on leave and we were not given any work. But, we were asked to sit quietly and do our own work. I was new in Bangalore and I had no friends. I take time to habituate to an incipient environment and I was missing my previous school friends additionally. I used to not verbalize with anybody. I didn’t have a habit of mingling with people facilely and it was genuinely arduous find a good friend because there used to be lots of politics within the class since 7th grade itself. Well, everybody knows what Kendriya vidyalaya is.
I had no choice but to pass my time until lunch break. I took out my rough notebook and commenced optically discerning my old rough notes which were indited in my previous school. There were some games played in that notebook. Optically discerning all that I started missing my friends more and my eyes filled with tears. As I was turning pages, I descried a drawing of mine, which was half drawn. Only the head was drawn and I had to consummate it. Lost in old school memories I simply started consummating the drawing and I had no conception what was I going to draw. I simply drew a nice figure insensately. I drew a frock and everything which is indispensable in a consummate dress. I shaded, drew embroidery, ribbon and many more stuff. I kept on doing, but didn’t realize what was I actually doing.
I consummated the drawing, closed the notebook and kept it in my bag again. After lunch we had a class and in the last teacher indited the homework on the board and asked us to note down. I took out my rough notebook again, while turning the pages I optically discerned my drawing. My eyes could not believe that I had drawn precisely what I always wanted to draw. Trust me, I had endeavored to draw such drawing before many a times, but could not do equipollent. But, I insensately drew that. I was feeling so jubilant seeing the drawing.
From that point on, I commenced practicing the same and it became my habit. The habit developed and it became so deplorable that, I used to spoil my notebooks and books with my drawings. I used to draw in the corners of my notebooks and books. And my drawings became so impeccable that it doesn’t take me much time to draw. I could draw ten figures or dresses in one minute. I dote doing it most of the time. If I get a minute’s time additionally I will draw something unconsciously.
Later, I developed a zealousness for fashion designing. I wanted to imitate my designs on fabric but I didn’t know to stitch. I commenced with cutting modicums of fabric and stitch with needle and thread manually. Later, I learned to utilize the sewing machine but did not learn tailoring. I commenced practicing by myself watching videos. Now, I’m able to manage stitching my own dresses. I beautify my dresses and engender something incipient from old dresses. I love doing it. I never see anything as a waste or old, I always feel that something good can be engendered from waste materials. I never throw the buttons and laces from old dresses. I have a good amusement of all these. If the fabric is additionally good, then I keep that too to utilize it in other dresses for the beatification.
Today, fashion designing is something that gives me inner bliss. I feel so good when i cerebrate of doing something about it. I feel, this is the only field in which i could do something and be contented.
My goal is to engender apparel and in my apparel I optate to show an ingenious side of my artistic ability and I optate to make my attire affordable for all. I relish making adumbrations of attire with a hope that one day it will be available in stores all over. Fashion designing in my opinion is a way to express the unique side of your ingenuity, fashion designing is a vocation that I believe I can achieve in so highly if I stay focused and perpetuate putting forth effort in my engenderments.
