First big break


When I got to work with Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

Your inspiration

I draw inspiration from raw unadulterated state because I believe that beauty exists in its most organic, flowing natural forms.

The memory of my childhood days has a profound impact on the visuals which in a general sense fill in as an inspiration for me.

The artworks are doodles and outlines of these memories.

Designer you admire

Yohji Yamamoto, I love his play of silhouettes with generosity of proportion and size.

His designs are deconstructed yet very balanced.


The designer included fabrics like felt, wool blend and twill suiting to create edgy looks. 

LFW collection 

The collection begun by the reminiscence of 'Bengali Fishermen'.

The garments are draped, twisted and tucked with immaculate tailoring with clean lines in an uncluttered palette of black and grey.

The silhouettes are made of sinuous shapes and artworks are doodled out of nostalgia.

Top fashion trends of 2017

People are drifting towards reconstructed tailoring, there is a sense of artistic expression in the work that is being put forward.

Style mantra

Your clothes should add to your personality, and not overpower it.

Most stylish Indian celebrity

Kangana Ranaut. She carries herself well and her personality reflects in her attire.

Ridiculous fashion trend

Overly distressed jeans; Undercut hairstyle.

Deepak Pathak

Future of fashion in India

I feel fashion is now one of the most rewarding career opportunity universally, including India.

Fashion industry in India is becoming fierce, challenging and dynamic with each passing day.

Fabrics Indians should never use 

One should refrain from using too much of synthetic fabrics because the climatic conditions in India are not suitable for such fabrics.
