Hey beautiful people!
I have something so exciting coming your way and I can’t wait to share it with you all! I’ve been working on my own clothing brand for the past few months and I’m hoping to launch at the start of next year (2018).
As a British Bangladeshi female, I have a mix of both cultures strongly embedded within me. Although I love the traditional bangladeshi look I’m always struggling to find sarees that are both traditional but modern, contemporary and chic at the same time. After a lot of wasted shopping trips I’ve literally started designing and sewing my own sarees with my very amateur sewing skills! But don’t worry, for my brand I will not be sewing anything! I will just be designing and leave the sewing to the pros LOL.
Here are two recent sarees that I’ve designed and sewed. Let me know what you think 🙂
So why a clothing brand and why now? I will cover this in a separate blog post in the ‘career’ section of my blog. So definitely follow me on Instagram @atiya_choudhury to stay posted with all the latest.
I’ve always loved designing, even when I was like 12 years old I would sketch different ideas mainly for clothes and interior design. I even begged my mum to buy me a sewing machine when I was 11 years old and yes I still have it! Lol. Although I’m not very good at sewing, I ABSOLUTELY love designing clothes.
I don’t want to give away too much about my brand because I’m constantly changing my mind and coming up with new ideas. Which is totally fine as I’m all about that evolutionary mindset! But one thing I will share is that it will definitely be something different and the brand itself defines elegance and luxury. Every piece I’ve been designing is different in its own way and tells a story of its own.
To follow me on my journey please do follow both my instagram accounts 🙂
