Intercity Traders

Independent Designer

/ Intercity Traders in a fashion house and export center based in Noida, India. I worked in the creativity and sustainability department creating unique bags out of waste fabrics and dyes. Each bag is 100% sustainable and has a conceptual basis. The collection attempts to invoke a sense of self-questioning in the consumer and guide them towards living a sustainable, eco-friendly life. These bags were sold under Intercity Traders’ subunit ‘I Am For You’ to raise money for the primary education of the underprivileged daughters of the workers at the factory.

ThINKing Pencil


thINKing pencil is a sketching club veered to guiding high-school students who are interested in fine art. The team of peer advisors help emerging artists figure out their own style of art and discourage students from following the conventional means of art, and rather teach them to look at art as a process-based conceptual journey, therefore, enabling them to make their art more compelling.
