Shivani Shesh, alumni from Modern High School, and Loreto College, Kolkatta has always been an ardent artist with a creative bent of mind. Having done numerous sketches, paintings and a brief course in Fine Arts from Birla Academy of Art & Culture, Kolkatta, she delved into the world of creative thinking. Paints, colour, brushes were synonymous and part of her life.
With time, she gradually shifted to Delhi, and continued her passion for sketching.
While continuing her passion for the creative, she majored in B.Ed, B.LibSc followed by M.A. from Delhi. She has been an excellent educationist and voracious reader and held the post of Head of Department, English and has been the Coordinator of a reputed educational institution till 2016.
The onset of 2016 was a major change in her career and sojourn of life. She started thinking about entering the realm of design. Hence, she decided to resign from her job and started exploring options for courses in designing. The part to resign and give away a well earning job was not easy for her, but she gives full credit to her son Shubham, who supported her in this journey. He made her realise that dreams do materialise, and they definitely come true; but one has to work in that direction to achieve. Hence, she gained courage and strength, and did not bother to look back at her decision.
She explored many venues and enrolled for classes to prepare for the entrance test. That by itself was a thrilling experience. For so many years, she was the mentor and today the role was reversed. She was the mentee and had to educate herself from the mentor.
Hence, she enrolled and graduated from Pearl Academy Institute, Noida; excelled and was awarded in Interior Designing and Styling course. (2017-2019).
The concept of starting her own company had already taken shape in 2017; and that was the year she had met her future design partner Uttara Barthwal, from Pauri, Garhwal. With her unique ideas, desire to shape and mould her thoughts and concepts into aesthetically pleasing, vibrant compositions; and their creativity to excellence and desire for brilliance, led them to the formation of DesignGatha, an Interior Designing firm.
The word ‘Design’ denotes ‘composition’ and ‘Gatha’ indicates a ‘story.’ Hence, the term ‘DesignGatha,’ was very appropriate where they weave, story of the clients, through their designs.
The birth of DesignGatha was to provide creative, artistic ideas for the client, to fulfil his/her needs through their artistically alluring compositions.
DesignGatha, not only provides Interior Design services, but it also undertakes turnkey projects, landscape and terrace gardening, modular kitchen and wardrobe, furniture and furnishings and styling services.
