Bonjour, my name is Anoop Shukla. I am an idealist, an editor and a perpetual student at my core. Professionally, I am a strategic manager with a strong design background.

I am currently the Head of Menswear for the luxury Indian fashion brand, Sabyasachi Couture. Details of the same can be found here. My work encompasses business development, sales analysis and range planning. My previous experiences have involved designing for brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Guess, Massimo Dutti, FCUK, CK, NEXT etc. through A.V.T, a Chennai based export house and designing for the runway show of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Berlin for S/S 2014

My core area of functional expertise include workflow systems implementation, lean management, problem solving, anticipating & preempting potential problems and coaching to create new leaders & contingencies. To sum up, I believe in creating a balanced and sustainable business model, working towards higher turnovers and providing counsel for the improvement of the organization as required.

In context to design, I work on the improve-by-elimination technique, reviewing and redoing my work. I find trying first hand to be imperative to the development process at the draft or beta-test stages. My work is predominantly minimalistic but I am not limited to it. My sense of aesthetic favors space division, harmony and contrast.

I believe that it is imperative to strike balance between the non-creative subject and genre-cycling creative work for the long-term. Hence I find simultaneous creative/studio work done in my time of leisure to be very stabilizing and insist on having the liberty to do so.
