I live in New Delhi. Having finished my high school from Goodley public school, Shalimar Bagh. I’m now pursing Bachelors programme in Interior designing from INSD. Now it’s being two years since I joined interior designing Bachelors course at INSD Corporate Branch after my school. I had decided to choose this career as I’m fond of doing creative things. As I always wondered that how a simple structure made up of bricks is converted into a beautiful art piece. So therefore, I decided to pursue interior designing as my career. When I was searching for a good Institute that could give a right direction to my career, than I came to know about INSD. This Institute had played an important role for building up my career. As I was from commerce background and initially know nothing about interior designing and architecture, the faculty of this Institute had cleared my concept from basic level. With their proper guidance and continuous support, now the scenario is that in just first two years of my study at INSD, I have already completed three projects in freelancing worksuccessfully. Although, all classes are my favorite classes, but I do enjoy building construction and graphic classes the most. There have been lots of fun & educational experiences at INSD so far, that I will never forget, which includes, group discussion, guest lectures given by the renowned personalities, working in various events organized by INSD such as India Runway Week fashion show. My future plan is to establish my own business of interior designing. I want to specialize in designing residential sector. If I will get a good job opportunity in this field, than definitely I will go for it. In short I want to become a renowned interior designer.

Hi! I am pursuing Fashion design course from International school of design, corporate branch at Gujranwala town, Delhi. As a child, I always wanted to be a guitarist but later on after completing my school, I realized that designing and innovating new things is what fascinates me. I excelled myself in creating new designs. I decided to opt for fashion design as a career. Fashion for me is not in clothes but all around everywhere. It’s been a year as a design student at INSD and I have acquired a lot. New clothing and accessories always attract me and inspire me to recreate them in a new manner. Fashion Design department at INSD insists the students studying Fashion design and Textile design to examine actual garments first hand in order to fully understand textile drape, pattern structure, and finishing techniques. Students, researchers, designers, and the public are welcome to visit by appointment. With INSD Fashion events each year, smaller installations, there are frequent Guest lectures by Industry experts and hosts conferences. I particularly admire Indian Designers Shantanu and Nikhil because according to me the best we can create and the best we can explore is only through drapes and they show that in a contrary manner. There designs are the perfect blend of contemporary with vintage and royal. Being at INSD makes me feel so proud about myself as I have grown so much professionally & personally. The faculties and administrators are always there motivating us. They guide us with best and the most remarkable ideas. It helped me a lot as they took out me from my comfort zone and made me think of unique and out of the box ideas. We have benevolent faculties who are there to guide me us every possible way. The best experience I have had at INSD was participation in India Runway Week as a Designer. INSD not only guided me about how the fashion industry works but also got me practically experience it too. I have participated in “Think Design” The INSD Fashion show as a designer and represented my collection and learned a lot from start to the end. I got wide coverage by 15 newspapers and interviews. It was an eye opener to feel how designers get inspired and how they execute it. INSD have always made me learn things thru the cutting edge. I have learned the prospective of analyzing things in a new manner here. I have always been inspired and motivated at every step which made me feel that I am always a step ahead for achieving my goal for being a Fashion Stylist. INSD remains dedicated to preparing leaders in the global industries of fashion, visual arts, interior design, and entertainment.
