CURRENT PROFILE: Working as a Freelance Textile Designer for Projects exclusively taken up for various Home furnishing Export House.
I am residing in New Delhi having worked for 7 years in job positions and presently working as a freelance Textile Designer, I take up projects on Home furnishings from different companies for making collections for their respective client (buyer), and as per season and colour forecast. The collections is made on some important points as: The story board is made from scratch with a detailed talk of the buyer's taste, season, company's strength, and whether the requirement is from high end or for the mass. With every step ahead all matters are discussed with the client.
Also in the collection I give every detailing starting from a visualization story board, colour schemes, fabric details (woven/prints/others) the fabrication detailing, accessories to be put on (with a given sample), if a need for surface embellishments, the actual size drawing along with detailing of required information. All designs/collections made for each will be exclusive and confidential under a protocol.
All this is done under the time taken from the client with regular meetings.
I also visit /correspond with the client during the making of the collections.
If a need of a client is small items like bags, just cushions, Christmas collections, something innovative, I sure do take the projects on.
I have worked for a Swedish client who wanted samples from India for a display at Heimtex-Germany.
Some projects in Jaipur as well.
(S/S, AU/W, X-MAS) for European and American Market.
