Welcome to my Website. My name is Nikita Karishma Shah and I am a young fashion designer studying at the London College of Fashion on a Fashion Product Clothing BA course. I am currently on a work placement year designing menswear for Tesco, designing a hoody for the best selling brand at Topman called 2323, and a range of blazers to be sold at my parents Asian Fashion store Variety Silk House.
This year has given me many opportunities including styling the Asian Woman front cover with Laila Rouass and my first year coursework being published in ASIANA magazine. This industry has also allowed me to interview many celebrities by doing reports as a tv presenter for Bina Mistry for Sony's The Zone programme. Redman, Upen Patel, Celina Jaitley, Raghav, Jay Sean are a few of the celebrities I've had the opportunity to interview.
As a hobby I love to dance with my dance troupe Breaking Ice. We've performed everywhere including Trafalgar Square, Asiana magazine events, Zee carnival and as a solo dancer I reached the UK Boogie Woogie bollywood dance finals in 2007. Also keep a look out for my collection of artwork. Recently I have been a model for my parents business Variety Silk House. For any information regarding what you see please feel free to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org

I have currently completed my second year on a fashion product clothing at the prestigious London College of Fashion. I have been brought up in a fashion environment with my parents, Roopal and Mayur, owning Variety Silk House. From a young age my design work has been inspired straight from the catwalks of India's Fashion Week, watched the likes of Gwen Stefani and Amitabh Bhachan visit our fashion house, and be surrounded by the entertainment industry in all aspects. This has fuelled my creativity in fashion design as well as other projects.
Have a look below to see some of my projects.

Fashion is a statement. It influences people’s minds in various ways; including voting preferences, teenage appearance and lifestyle habits. My collection is designed to send out a positive environmental message, discouraging littering especially of plastic carrier bags. I have created a collection from which garments functionally convert into bags. Consumers need not use packaging when purchasing the garment, as they can walk out the store with it as a bag. It is designed to be a press product of a range and hopefully send out a positive message for anti-littering. The collection was inspired by Vivienne Westwood's very political design sense. As a young designer I believe that fashion influences everyone and that we must take that responsibility to allow our young generation to help the world.
