WHEN WAS DORTISHSTYLE STARTED AND WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START A FASHION DESIGNING?
Dortishstyle started October 2015 but the dream was there way back, Designing was there within me and had been doing it but not as a business just for myself, friends, and relatives. I just had cold feet to make it official, but thank God on October 2015 Dortishstyle started officially.
AS A FINANCE AND MARKETING EXPERT HOW DESIGNING IS AFFECTED BY YOUR CAREER?
My academic qualification real helps me to run my talent at professional in way it generates revenue, well managed and grown not only with popularity but with income as well.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST THING YOU STRUGGLE WITH AS A DESIGNER? WHAT ADVICE YOU HAVE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO START FASHION DESIGNING?
For me the hardest part is to create a design that is 100% to my vision, cause am not very good at tailoring yet, so I have to pass my vision to my workers.
Another challenge is keeping up with the market fashion and trend because they all change so fast and yet different from others, but with all this I love what I do and I’m still learning and improving every day, With the help of God will make it to international grounds.
For those thinking about to start fashion designing, they should just start with what they have, there is never the perfect moment, you just have to push yourself and see your dream tradeoff.
