Fashion | Sustainability
User Experience | Technology
I’m Nandita, a fashion designer turned digital product manager with aspirations to become a sustainability strategist. Essentially, I learn and then I design things. Clothes, apps, action plans, vacation itineraries… I apply design thinking to every aspect of my life.
I started out wanting to design clothing and work with traditional Indian textiles but eventually found myself immersed in the world of fashion technology. I spent several years getting up-close and personal with artificial intelligence, computer vision, NLP search and other exciting innovations.
By day, I work on building engaging and unique digital experiences - leveraging data and UI/UX. By night, I (fight crime) study about policies and technological developments that can drive sustainability and social responsibility in the Fashion Industry; bringing together my love for fashion, technological prowess and design thinking abilities.
In between, I find time to swim, visit museums and art exhibits, cook, raise money for charity and make myself a cocktail or two.
