Hello all our lovely ladies and handsome gentlemen! In an attempt to bring to limelight the unknown talent in our very own city, Zeepzoop started an initiative to talk to Fashion Entrepreneurs in Ahmedabad.
Today on our feature is the very talented and determined entrepreneur of Fasionate.com - Payal Shah.
Payal’s journey began when she was a mere teenager. She was passionate about fashion since the very beginning. Her loved ones recognized her talents soon enough and pushed her to become a fashion designer. With an eye for fashion, she was able to find her inspiration almost everywhere. She watched movies and daily soaps just to recreate the look she loved in her own style. Her passion and dedication to build confidence in others through fashion is truly inspirational. Once she realized she had the power to influence lives, there was no stopping.
After her schooling, she pursued Masters in Computer Application. Even during her college days, she never left her passion behind. Something that came naturally to her by now. To take her dreams to the next level, she pursued a course in celebrity styling with Rockey Star from FAD International Academy, Dubai. She is also certified in personal styling and shopping by London School of Styling. Her eagerness to share her fashion sense along with being a people person with others gave birth to her personal blog - Fasionate.
Today, Fasionate.com is over an year old and she has her husband, friends and family to thank for a smooth flowing journey full of memories and achievements. Payal feels lucky to have her family and friends involved directly or indirectly in per passion and believes it is this involvement that makes her work so flawless. When asked about the people she was thankful for, she had a long long list, but the one person she would like being mentioned is her husband, who realised her potential and pushed her to take up the celebrity styling course in Dubai, along with her parents and in laws who supported her at every step in her journey. She also mentioned a big shout out to her friends who are not just her friends but her guides, inspirations and critics for whatever she does. She considers all of them equal partners in success.
When asked about her favourite styling attire, she said she favoured both western as well as ethnic, but her love for ethnic is a little deeper. Her funda of rocking an attire is choosing something she is comfortable in, as the comfort enhances and compliments the confidence in her. But, as any other elegant lady, a saree melts her heart.
When asked about what she thinks about accessorising, she believes that accessorising is one of the most important element that helps someone define their personality. Her go to accessory has always been statement ethnic earrings which she styles with almost everything, from western to ethnic.
Being a fashion blogger and stylist, shopping is more than just a hobby for her. In spite of her busy schedule, she never forgets to give time to her favourite hobbies. She adores DIY crafts, cooking and making hand made gifts!
Being very secretive about her plans to take her passion to the next level, Payal revealed that she has many projects she would like to undertake one of which is budget styling. She believes fashion is not just about high end pricy clothes, rather wants to show the world that one can make a statement even on a budget. She wishes to curate goodie bags full of things one needs to style themselves for a particular budget. All her other ideas are taking a creative shape in her mind.
Payal is a living inspiration of how far your passion can take you.
