About me

An Engineer at mind, and a Fashion Influencer at heart. I had always been confused about choosing between fashion and science until I realised I could get the best of both worlds. Having an Industrial Engineering and Management degree gave me insights of both engineering and business. This enabled me to look at problems from the managerial perspective, as well as the technical one, offering an overview of a whole project. While at it, I also created a website called Musing on a Hanger, where I blogged about fashion in all forms through my lenses. This opened up many opportunities for me and pushed me to peruse a career in Fashion. From there on, I moved to London to do a one year fashion programme at London College of Fashion. Understanding Fashion Business and Management at a greater altitude and using my knowledge from the former degree, I realised that buying and merchandising is a path I'd perfectly fit in.
