Nikhil Thampi who always thought that he was destined to learn about human behavior and who also is a psychology graduate wasn't aware that his life would take a different turn and he would land in the fashion industry.
The secret to his success is that he always followed his heart and not his head. The boss of all the work is his heart. His journey to success was also possible by being independent, individualist and also being original.
His first collection was showcased in 2011 at Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. His biggest inspiration was always his grandmother and his family was always a big support in pushing him to be a part of the fashion week.
Nikhil Thampi doesn't believe in keeping it same. He likes to reinvent and create something new everytime to avoid boredom in his clothes. His designing is fierce and you may be taken by surprise everytime he brings out a new collection.
The high points of his career was being a part of Lakme Fashion Week twice along with judging NIFT Graduation Exhibition and having 3 segments on him on the tv shows: Style Police and I Love Style.
One of Nikhil's biggest achievements was being invited to the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.
His clothes are found at Pernia's Pop Up Shop and also at his Delhi store which is: Twist @ 2, Hauz Khas Village.
