Going from a single market enterprise to one that engages multiple markets is not an easy task. Hetal Desai, a Melbourne based Fashion designer who started her career back in 2017as a freelancer in Ahmedabad, is now a proud owner of a renowned fashion label named Veer Fashion Studio.
With a dream of becoming one of the leading fashion designers in the industry, Hetal started on a small scale intending to spread her creative wings across quarters.

Hetal is also known for her hand-painted designs which were also part of one of the fashion shows held in Ahmedabad by BRDS institute.
Talking about her journey, Hetal says, “It has been an incredible journey so far. When I started as a freelancer in Ahmedabad right after passing my designing studies, I had no clue, one day I’ll be this successful. Things changed after marriage. Moving to Melbourne with my husband gave me many opportunities. It is not easy to work on Indian clients from offshore, but with the help of such a great team, it becomes easy. I wish to create more and more designs that become a staple in the Fashion industry”.
