The store employs seven people and Gazi is an employer who believes in giving the personal touch to every creation. He says that, garment designing is an art and the designer is as good as an artist. He subscribes to the idea of designing clothes to suit the body type. “The profession is a tough one as it requires hard work,” he says. Gazi adds that, “Some designers are naturally talented while some need to learn the carft.”


Gazi reveals that, he had to overcome many hurdles in his journey to become a master designer. He hails from a very poor family from the lower strata of the society in West Bengal. “My family background was also not good enough to fund my education. I had to quit schooling and discontinue with the studies and seek a job as my father’s earning was insufficient to met our expenses. My dream for good education had to be dropped and day he he had to even give up on my night classes.” Like many migrants he came down to Goa in pursuit of green pastures.


“When I came down to Goa I was fortunate to working under the able guidance of established fashion designers in Babu Classic, Butterfly Madame, Philu Martins, Shaheen Designers, Burma Designers, Monte Designers, Velvet Designers,” he says. The money he received was not enough to support my living. And so, he decided to establish his own fashion designing shop in Panaji. “I am popular amongst the fashion conscious Goans,” he says.


On the garment scenario, Gazi reveals that, fashion is popular amongst all classes of the society in Goa. “Nowadays people have lot of money and money can buy anything. As such people have lots of clothes, readymade or stitched and for every they buy clothes,” he says. He adds that, fashion has made inroads into every home as people want unusual, attractive and eye catching dresses for occasions.


“In Goa people are fashion conscious and they are willing to spent willingly on clothes. They want latest trends in fabrics and stitching. As a result designers are flourishing in the state,” he says. His store provides employment and Gazi is happy that he is a job giver after being in dire straits in the past.Read more at:evening gowns | evening dresses online
