AD SINGH, 28, Fash­ion de­signer

India Today - - SIMPLY MUMBAI -

When AD Singh was 17, he de­signed a jacket for him­self and ended up be­ing fea­tured in a lead­ing national daily as a po­ten­tial fash­ion de­signer. This was just the push he needed to dip his toes into the world of fash­ion de­sign­ing. Singh set up his first store in Juhu called AD Singh in 2005. Soon Singh ven­tured into the world of fash­ion in 2009 with the launch of his la­bel ‘AD Singh’ in Dubai and South Africa. Since then, his de­signs have been worn not only by In­dian beau­ties, but also in­ter­na­tional fash­ion di­vas like Nelly Fur­tado, Naomi Camp­bell and Paris Hil­ton.

THE JOUR­NEY Singh stud­ied In­ter­na­tional Mar­ket­ing and Fi­nance from Mum­bai Univer­sity and then spe­cialised in Fash­ion and De­sign from Wi­gan and Leigh Col­lege, UK, 2003. “Though my fa­ther owned a de­signer out­fit fran­chis­ing com­pany, I wanted to cre­ate a la­bel of my own,” he says. His lat­est project which started in 2010 in­volves de­sign­ing for­mal wear for the em­ploy­ees of Wock­hardt Hos­pi­tals.
