Her team of the brand क-श Ka-Sha focuses mainly on the customer comforts that include; the skin tone, figure, sensuality, and culture at the same time. The objective of the brand is to help the dealers have a fair trade that benefits the young designers at the grass root level. Her combination of culture and modernity is a perfect blend that reflects in her designs.
Young successful girls are a big inspiration to me. Being a woman, I can relate the challenges, especially in a glamor industry. Karishma Shahani Khan carries her brand and people recognize her by her work. She is a responsible designer who has clear and pure thoughts in terms of working with people. Her sincerity reflects in her wok.
Personally, I love fashion designers who are go getters. They have a different vision to see the world. Their world is full of colors and they are lost to bring colors in people’s life. Being a shopaholic, I have never commented on any brand, as I know the intensity behind those designs. It takes a good amount of hard work from the point of designing till the selection of the fabric and its finishing.
Karishma is a sweet girl full of thoughts that occupy her all the time. More than her profits, she has been sensitive in bringing a clear understanding between the struggling designers and customers. Her designs are appreciated and admired by people who follow simplicity in the modern fashionable manner.
I feel amazed to know that such a young mind can be so thoughtful. Her first collection; ‘Yatra’ brought her an amazing level of recognition. It is no doubt that Karishma is a self-starter in her field and she has bypassed all the challenges posed in her career. When it comes to choosing the right clothes for me, I prefer to be classy and sober. I am very choosy in selecting garments. The designer should be intellectual enough to understand her audience.
There are some designers who follow appealing designs as per their target audience and then there are designers like Karishma Shahani Khan, who is sensitive keeping in mind the entire audience at large. Her designs are comfortable, subtle, and meant for the common audience. Fashion designing is an art that trains you to understand people emotions through their attire.
I wish Karishma all the best for her future endeavors and hope that she comes up with many more brand names in the near future. I am eagerly waiting for more positive designs from her which will bring some fresh air in my wardrobe.
