Megha, from the very beginning had a growing interest in going beyond the traditional boundaries of art and design. She had a penchant for clothing and how it functions, little did she know that it would translate into a felicitous career path one day.
To slake her thirst to learn, she first pursued a bachelor's degree in Fashion Design from Raffles Millennium International and then went on to complete her post-graduation in Costume Design for Performance at the London College of Fashion.
During her tenure in London, she extensively internalized the diverse culture and art scene of the place. Her interdisciplinary approach got her to span many allied fields, primarily costume and performance, installation art, product design and fashion.
She has exhibited her work at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and has also designed for the National Film and Television School, UK. After this, she got the opportunity to work as a costume designer for the National School of Drama in New Delhi.
Megha has always been inclined towards the grotesque side of human behaviors and psychoanalysis, which are quite evident in her work. She aims to shed light on human abomination and disfigurements, establishing cause and effect ratios in life and function within various parameters of design.
