His fascination with the arts and crafts started early in life. ‘I was always surrounded by some form of creativity all the time. The biggest influence has been my mother, who is a crafts teacher. She is very skilled in weaving and embroidery and used to make amazing pieces of art’.
He moved to Bangalore to pursue his higher studies. Then he got placed in a Danish company. ‘I was working out of Bangalore for some time, but then I got the opportunity to move to Copenhagen.’ After working for about a year, he was able to get admission into Copenhagen Business School which helped him in a lot of different ways. ‘It was a great experience studying abroad, as the school system is very different from India.’ After finishing school, he started his fashion label - NIXONBUI.
Three years back, when the label started, they were only making t-shirts but over the years they have expanded their product range. ‘We started to make button shirts and sweaters. And now, we have also expanded to a full-fledged womenswear line with some really intricate designs. NIXONBUI designs are modern and yet embrace his tribal roots. ‘When it comes to my creative process with NIXONBUI, my tribal heritage is what drives me.’
That is not all, the company has also expanded towards a different line of business - NIXONBUI Vodka. A premium organic vodka, it is made from the finest organic grains and glacial water.
