TGPC: Hi Mayur, so what really drove you into fashion and designing?
Mayur: Since childhood I always had attraction towards drawing and creativity. I was a sincere child in school days and always used to win drawing competitions. As I came from small town, I didn’t know much about fashion industry and how to enter in this glamour world? So my parents suggested me to choose Degree course of “Architecture”. Hence I came to Pune after my 12th for my further education in the year 2014. So in my college campus there is a fest called “Sinhagad Karandak” which used totake place and every year our architecture college used to win that trophy. Thats how my inner talent came outside during college days. On social media I used to upload all my creative stuff and fashion illustrations. So one day one of the “fashion college” in Pune INIFD college saw my work on instagram and they offered me an opportunity for their annual fashion show competition. All the participants were experienced fashion student and I was newcomer Architecture student there. I took it as challenge and gave my best and finally I won best designer trophy and jury’s favourite award in that fashion show. That’s how I entered in fashion world with big Dreams in my eyes and my journey as a fashion designer begain in 2019.
TGPC: What was your break through moment in fashion industry?

So it was turning point for me as every renowned fashion model, Photographer, cinematographer started contacting me by seeing my work on Instagram and they wanted to work with me.
