After going through the endless work emails, all of a sudden I have a peek at the #IAmCapable email. And somehow I felt like the story of the email is actually made for me. In this blog my story is something allied to my experience as a fashion designer and a fashion blogger. So here, I’m breaking stereotypes based on appearance by sharing my experience for the #IAmCapable activity at BlogAdda in association with Nihar Naturals.
I have smelt the essence of fashion in my teens and dreamt of to be a fashion designer. My parents used to be the ‘fashionistas’ for me at that time. But as I was a girl from upper middle class family of India, the society (relatives also) didn’t take this profession positively. They didn’t even know what ‘Fashion Designer’ actually means? So after completing my 12th standard, when I have chosen fashion designing as my career my society selected me as bygone.
It was kind of a challenge for me to establish myself as a fashion designer and blogger as well. My surroundings (except my parents) became just contrary to my decision of choosing a designer career. My teachers used to be fretted about my career as I always ranked top in my my academic years. So it was a fight against the mind set up of my society.
I never given up and started my fashion designing career. Time passes and glamorous world of fashion never disappointed me. The sense became stronger day by day that I’m much more than just a fashion creator. Blogging was my passion always and I have started fashion blogging in my college days. In 2010, I have started working with fashion and lifestyle with 30 styles of designer products and in the year of 2013 I have launched my own online brand ‘RUDRITA’. Now I have more than 200 styles of designer products. From collaboration with leading online shops throughout the world to exporting products in USA, UK and many other countries, now my company is my ‘Pride’.
The best part of my achievements is the people who shilly-shallied about my career, my look and my creativity, eagerly buy my products. Their positive feedbacks and ‘feeling proud’ caption is one of the best feathers in my throne where 69% men judge women by their looks, 64% women’s judgement affects their ability to reach their true potential, 70% women judged by their family members rather than strangers and 72% women judged by their looks or clothes are mostly for working women than housewives are the statistics of my country about their thoughts.
