Estyler magazine interview Meera Sharma
Thursday, June 7, 2012

Tell us about your time at Westminster. What was the most valuable lesson you learnt?
My time at Westminster was great; I developed a lot, not only as a designer but as a person also. The most valuable lesson I learnt was probably a lot more about fashion design and also the industry as a whole.

What inspired your final year collection?
My final year collection was inspired by the Female Superhero, who to me is the ultimate woman; strong, sexy and not afraid to stand up for what is right.

Fashion is tough - what do you do to keep yourself sane?
Yes, fashion is indeed a tough industry. People often think that it is really glamorous, but it is a lot of hard work - and I mean a lot. You have to be willing to give all your time to it. My family and friends have certainly kept me sane as, for the past few months, I have become completely engrossed with fashion.

What did you do to get a placement at Jonathan Saunders?
Getting my placement at Jonathan Saunders was a very easy process; I just sent off my CV and got a reply within a few weeks!

What does the future hold for Meera?
Ultimately, I want to set up my own label that has offices in Los Angeles, New York and watch this space!
