I started collecting Barbie dolls from 2012. I used to play with normal local dolls from childhood, they were my best friends. I came to know about Barbie from a cover picture of an eraser of my classmate when I was in 4th standard. I was so attracted and curious about doll as I have not seen such a beauty. After a few months I found Barbie in a nearby toy shop, I really wished to have my first Barbie, but as I am a boy and my parents can’t afford such a great price for the doll they refused to buy the Barbie doll. My urge to own Barbie was so high. I participated every doll making competition from 5th standard till 10th.I have won prize for sub district and district level doll making competition, also participated in state level. As a motivation, I got a repro fashion doll in 2003 from my dad. After that I used to collect imitate dolls of Barbie due to unaffordable price of Barbie for me during my studies. After completing my B.Tech I joined for my first job in Vasan Dental Care. I bought my first Barbie in 2012 from the first salary I got. I was more focused to collect play-line and fashionistas.I also collected collector dolls, holiday Barbie and birthday Barbie. Now I own more than 150 Barbie dolls. I never expected such a golden moment in my life, still I am continuing my collection.

                    I used to collect dolls from Ernakulam toy shops,Malls,Online etc. By 2016 some of doll collectors started a whatsapp group,in which I was also a member, most of them were basically fashion designers and tailors. Every Sunday we used to dress up our dolls according to a theme just like a competition. Most of my group members make doll dresses by themselves. As I am not good in sewing, I always mix and match the dresses of other dolls to make theme dresses. I wished to make such doll dresses with such a good perfection.

Once, our task was to make crop top and long skirt for the doll, I was not able to participate in it as I don’t have such doll dress with me, I informed my group members that I wished to be a fashion designers like you people so that I can also make doll dresses by myself. One of my friend in that group told me join a fashion designing institute, I replied in group that I am too old to join now, then most of them motivated me and inform age does not matter for this course, so I searched in google and found JD institute of fashion technology, visited the website and registered on June 2017. I got an admission call for December 2017 batch, but as I was working, I was not able to join for that evening batch. Then I took admission for May 2018 batch. Now I am JDiian, who can make dress not only for dolls, can dress up the real human too.
