'In Fashion School, my teacher could not stand bad sewing! She maintained that our
clothes must always look perfect on the inside as they look on the outside.
Making clothes is not just about joining pieces of fabric together.
It is also about sewing with a conscience and this became a part of me.
Ensuring that every piece I made looked perfect.
Till today, I cannot bear to give my customer an outfit with bad finishing.
I guess that was why my clothing factory became popular.
My customers deserved the best and that was what I gave them.
Your customers deserve it as well and you deserve to be proud of your work!
