It all started when...
Hello there! I’m Lipi Thejaswi ( /li-pi: ðeɪ-jah-swiː/ ), a fashion designer and an enthusiastic illustrator. My ultimate interest in fashion, sketching and design lead me to drop out of engineering to pursue fashion designing. Yes, you read me right! I’m an engineering drop out. I hail from a city where people find it hard to believe that fashion designing can be career choice. Like Chandler from Friends, nobody really knew what I was doing! Originally from Chennai(India) - San Francisco is my new home.
I completed my Bachelor’s in Fashion Design from Raffles College of Design and worked for various companies (Indian Terrain, Stashwear, QD Seatoman Designs, Freelancer for Mandira Bansal Studio,.. ) for the past 2 and half years. I also helped co-found the company Stashwear.
I design clothes & accessories inspired by people I see around me: professional, fun, active, and on-the-go. Find me in the cafes of downtown San Francisco, or just click the button below:
“Lipi did an outstanding job in creating these tech packs! She communicated very clearly and understood all objectives from the get go. Definitely would recommend her to anyone needing help with design and will most likely need her for future work as well. Definitely recommend her for any design needs you have or anything that requires her work ethic as she is bound to go the extra mile. Rare quality these days!”

“Lipi Thejeswi has been very creative and hardworking colleague at Stash Wear. She has worked from the design team to the marketing/sales team and has shown a great sense of responsibility and sincerity in each department. Her performance is par excellence and she is composed while handling tough work pressure. She is open minded to suggestions and knows clearly when and how to apply her knowledge and experience. This quality has been reflected in her leadership as well. There was a strong sales growth because of her immense contribution in the marketing department. Her strengths are in designing and building concepts. Lipi's determination has helped her tackle deadlines and stay unique in her distinguished work profile. It has been a pleasure and wonderful experience working with Lipi Thejeswi by my side and i wish all the best for her future endeavors.”

Lipi was fantastic to work with, she was patient, with all my questions, and all the changes and curve balls i threw her way in the course our work together. I enjoyed working with her very much and will do so again hopefully.

"As Program Director of Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing & Management department, I have had the pleasure of knowing and teaching Ms. Lipi from 2013 to 2014 during her Bachelor of Design in Raffles Design College, Bangalore ( under Raffles University, Singapore). She has been a dedicated student who stood out among her peers for her skills, creativity, ambition and enthusiasm. Apart from her passion for design and exceptional academic performance in the Fashion Design program, I must also recognize her participation during the school’s other activities, where she gave her best and contributed in making those events a great success like final graduation events. During her modules with me like Sustainable design, Couture techniques and Other studio Projects, she got involved in design research, product development and various functional areas which stood out brilliantly and her submissions were on par with the industry standards. She is a quick learner and is sincere at her work. Her academic performance and contribution to the institution is commendable. For the above mentioned reasons I fully recommend Ms. Lipi .And I am sure she will be a responsible employee and will demonstrate the necessary creative and technical skills required to succeed in job assignments. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you."
