THE FOUR FOUNDING PILLARS OF THE ACADEMY

Our Story

DesignerShala stemmed from the desire to make design education accessible and affordable for fashion aspirants. Our founder, Shivangi Lahoty, hails from a small town in the upper hills of Assam where opportunities and knowledge for fashion were limited.

 

However, she challenged her situations and went on to study at NIFT Mumbai and FIT New York in a unique dual-degree programme for Fashion Design. In order to give back to her industry, she started with a YouTube channel to help design students kickstart their fashion careers and has so far helped three batches and thousands of students chase their passion for fashion!

 

Later she honed her business skills at IIMA with their Creative and Cultural Business Programme and realised her passion for education. Being a Shenomics fellow and a NITI AAYOG Incubatee, Shivangi started with DesignerShala during the COVID-19 pandemic to give fashion aspirants a chance to chase their fashion careers!
