Brocade Boutique Successfully Running Since 20 years
I am Yogithaa Anand Gowda, celebrity fashion designer
who is the proud owner of Brocade boutique successfully
running from past 20 years.
I am not what i was supposed to be. I am what i choose
to become. Yes! where there is a will there is a way.
My parents, like all other regular Indian parents for
whom excellence in academics is the ultimate aim, too
wanted me to run the rat race and pursue medicine.
But silently my creative mind always revolved around
clothes, colors, art, desingning and fashion.I struggled
to convince my loved ones that my world lay beyond
stethoscope and patients.
But God helps you to fly over. One fine day a Midas
touch changed my parents mind and they finally agreed
to let me pursue my dreams.
Coming from a political family , people laughed at
me saying that i am fit for nothing as i couldnt fulfill
my parent's dream and studying fashion designing was
not suiting our status. Just Imagine 25years ago people
didnt know much about Fashion field. That made me
more strong and that day i took up the challenge to
achieve something BIG in life. Following which i did my
Diploma in Fashion designing from VET Polytechnic and
professional designing course from NIFT Bangalore.
While i was still in my second year ,parents got me
married due to my father's health issues. Life threw a lot
of lemons at me, though i made a juice and drank it but
never stopped working on my passion.
I finished my studies with flying colors .The desire to
prove my abilities to the people who did not believe in
me was becoming more and more profound inside me.
With lack of support and encouraging people around
me, i started my first tailoring unit in my car garage.
Oh yes, you read it right. A GARAGE !
What started as a small tailoring shop in a Garage with
only kids wear, is now a full fledged designer studio.
Brocade is one of the popular choices among women
No doubt the journey was tough, i was more tougher,
I should say.
My vision to help the poor and needy people made
me go one step further and I could train more than 200
people who earn their bread independently today. I feel
proud of it.
My thirst to achieve more didn't stop there. I groomed
myself and entered the world of modelling and beauty
