Rajesh Pratap Singh (RPS):  Well, a friend of mine called and asked me to do it and so I did.

TeamMM: What’s your take on the Indian Fashion Industry currently – any particular designers you are impressed by?
RPS: Lot of new young talent is now coming up, which is great and a positive thing to take the industry forward. Therefore it will not be correct to name one or few.

TeamMM: Your mood board reflects illusions – can you shed more light on it?
RPS: Everything is an illusion.

TeamMM: Collaborating with a make-up brand – what was the experience like? Did you face any challenges?
RPS: No, it was nice to interact with a young and co-operative team. I am sure both the teams are game to learn from each other.

TeamMM: What has been your most memorable collection?
RPS: Amnesia is something which I have always been accused of; I tend to forget after every collection. The focus is always on the new collection/season.
