Tell us more about your hidden talents.
I’m a good sportsman, and now I’m trying to be a better spokesman as well. Also I want to educate people about fashion and tell them to be confident about what they want to do in fashion.
Even though your work has been immaculate, are there any specific changes you would like to bring to this industry?
So many, I want to work for the industry. There is a huge gap in our media, shows, what’s going on behind the scenes, behind the camera. There is a lot of talent, and nice people working, we are right here at the top so we should be proud of that and we should show it through the media and digital content that now it’s the time to push the fashion again.
A message for youth?
If you are connected to the fashion industry and if you want to come towards this side, so there are a lot of people here that do not work hard or don’t push themselves daily. So I would want people and youth to push themselves towards extreme. Learn and make mistakes, don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Everything is possible. And I’m always here to help if someone’s needs it in my department. Always listen to your parents, pray 5 times a day and the rest will come to you.
