Here’s me talking to him about his collection:
Me: What inspired you to be a Fashion Designer?
Shallabh: Since school I was good in Drawing, therefore after 10th I chose to study fine arts in which I scored the highest. Untill then I was not sure about it and never ever thought of becoming a fashion designer.
Few months after I completed my 10+2, I visited the British council in Delhi where I applied for a 1 year Diploma Course from London College of Fashion. The first 3 months I did not enjoy London, then the 2nd semester of my Fashion Diploma I started liking and enjoying it and at the end of it I decided to apply for a BA (Hons.) Fashion Design and Marketing. Luckily I got through and 3 years went by quickly, it was then that I was confident about what I wanted to do once I was done with my studies. 

So here I am, Shallabh Radhikaby Shallabh Mittal

·    Me: How would you define your personal style? 

Shallabh: My style is very Classy and English; you will mostly see me in Shirts, Jeans and a pair of Loafers 

·   Me: What was your Inspiration for your latest collection? How would you define the style your line exemplifies? 

Shallabh: This time for fall winter-13, I was inspired by both the British and Indian Cultures, so I mixed both the styles. The cuts and shapes you see in the collection have been influence by my journey to UK and the details such as Hand embroidery on Pashmina fabric is an Indian technique, which makes the collection look elegant and classy.
