Steven: Hi, my name is Steven Broadway and welcome to the University of Fashion website. This evening we’re gonna be speaking with the very glamorous Monisha Raja, the designer behind Love Is Mighty. Alright, Monisha, so let’s start at the beginning. And where were you born and raised?
Monisha: I was born in India. My father was in the Army and we traveled all over the country. So, I pretty much grew up all over India. I was born specifically in Calcutta and raised in the south, in the north.
