Just because every successful story begins with a carefully devised past, having admired by Shakira's body of work, with that extra little zest, I reached out the lady Shakira herself to know few tricks of her trade.
"I actually started my business by hand painting designs each one off & exclusive on cushions, bags, scarves. Apart from friends and family, exhibiting my products in small galleries kick started my brand. Putting hours as an apparel textile designer for children's apparel coupled with my hand done work strengthen a lot to further my brand as well.”
"The only thing that has brought some success is my hard work and prioritising.....sometimes for a home based business your house work piles up and you need to get to it...but setting the priorities with a sense of calm focus has helped everything fall into spaces.. Immense support from my husband has also helped in this; I could not do it without him! My husband is the one who put together a printing table for me (Bless him) and since then I am on a creative roll and I did not have to look back."
