She is the one with the big curly hair who speaks with her eyes. Don’t look at She has a passion for design, but hates calling herself a designer. She’s an “explorer”, because what is design anyway? Growing up in an Indian family and being influenced in a variety of cultures, Shweta enjoys fusing different styles and genres in her personal work. She aims to tackle sociopolitical issues and wants to speak to her generation, and the ones to come. Her work is loud, truthful and aims to seduce multiple senses.
Born in India, raised in Toronto. Shweta attended OCAD University for Graphic Design, completing her Bachelor of Design degree in 2015. She is continuously inspired by the people and places around her, including Toronto’s music, art and fashion scene.
