About Myself

During my years at Central Saint Martins College I was involved in several projects, which gave me an excellent opportunity to practice my skills of research, colour schemes, silhouette developing and forecasting, encompassing all aspects of fashion design.

Through my professional degree I acknowledge myself as a highly creative designer with a good eye for new trends and forecasting not to mention solid knowledge of design concepts and theatrical principles like color, lighting and staging. I am computer proficient and I make great use of that knowledge to express my ideas.

I have strong knowledge of complex manual pattern cutting and by use of CAD. I am an excellent researcher with the experience of creating collections from basic theme to final product. I enjoy working in a team, always open for new ideas, suggestions, and can effectively deal with human politics

CAD Knowledge
Photoshop, Illustrator CS2, Pattern Maker, Gerber, Optitex, Corel Draw, Studiomax, Poser, Cinema 4D, MS Office.

At present I reside in Dubai but am constantly traveling to Europe and USA. I am also willing to relocate to any country my new job may require.
