“Space is a reflection of its inmates. A blank room can be transformed into a grand spectacle by mere reflection of a few ideas. After my BA (Hons.) in Textile Design, I started Paradise 6, where we make a difference. Each collection is crafted with an attention to detail in terms of design, colour and technique. I try to break the stereotypes in design revealing creativity and untapped possibilities under this brand name.”
