My name is Paras Aneja.
I’m a Fashion designer and Illustrator. I create Graphic art to convey stories, ideas, designs and visions.
“I never discriminated. Work is work for me. I wanted to learn, and I took any opportunity that walked through the door”, says Paras while reminiscing about the early days of his career in fashion.
Coming from a small town, Paras Aneja never really thought of pursuing fashion as a full-time career. It was a chance happening that soon turned into “LOVE FOR LIFE”.
This is his story of how he fought against all the odds to follow his passion and how he had to constantly keep on upgrading himself to move in sync with the ever-evolving world of fashion.
Paras has now successfully carved out a niche for himself in the world of fashion designing and takes courses on fashion illustration. He wants to give back to the society by teaching students the modern methods of managing and designing portfolios. He is a renowned fashion illustrator who has taught over 1000 students and has conducted 100s of workshops.
My only job is to create intricate handcrafted digital artwork and teach how to do digital fashion illustrations that can add spark to your portfolios and illustrations which can lend to some paid projects.
Whether it is handmade or digital art, brand illustrations, unique and eye-catching artwork for your wedding stationery, customised outfits, I’ll be happy to create one for you!
I started teaching digital illustrations two years before. I really enjoy teaching new students daily and motivating them. I got 1k+ Students-cum-Friends. I even conduct free sessions with colleges and institutes to guide students on portfolios, jobs and industry.
My goal is to inspire, teach and empower students to work hard on their skills because no degree matters when you are skilled enough for the role. I want to teach my style of Digital Fashion illustrations as much as I can. Also, I want to bring more focus to digital artwork, which will bring more job opportunities and freelance work. As in India, we are lacking behind in understanding the importance of digital fashion illustrations. I want to launch my label to the industry, which will convey my design language.
I started my journey three years back and struggled a lot in doing hand illustrations because I was from a commerce background. Then, I shifted my focus to digital illustrations. I made my digital portfolio and mastered digital illustrations.
Actually, I am an outsider. I don’t know anyone from the industry. So it was very clear from day one that I have to create my own path, my signature, my own illustration/design language, which should resonate with people as an illustrator artist. I struggled a lot in learning digital illustrations, so I came up with a digital fashion illustration course one year back in order to add some value to your portfolios and illustrations.
I thank all students and clients who trusted Parasaneja Illustrations for learning and customised illustrations.
