House of Poplyn
How did you get started?
I did my BA (Hons) in Fashion Design from India and have since worked with various international designers and design houses. I also worked with designers in South Africa for 3 years before moving to Toronto, Canada. I started my label House of Poplyn in the Fall of 2013 with a 10 piece capsule collection presented in Toronto.
Describe your brand in one sentence.
House of Poplyn creates conceptual pieces that combine attention to detail and a contemporary approach to bring out high fashion collections that are unique in perspective and a conversation starter.
Describe your design/creation process.
My designs are always inspired by nature and my surroundings. I take inspiration from my travels across the globe and try to bring my love for colours, textures and surface treatments together with the theme I work on to bring out a cohesive collection. I like to be involved with each process of initial development starting from conceptualizing the theme to patterns and samples. My flare for colours and surface textures finds its way into each collection I work on.
