Mysuru: There are no dearth of talents having their roots in cultural capital Mysuru, carving a niche of their own elsewhere.

Kaushal Vishukumar is one such talent, who in a short span of six years has made a career of his own at far away Miami Florida in USA. He is working with a company called Baccio couture Inc as an Assistant Fashion Designer and Manager.

Kaushal Vishukumar walks the ramp during one of the shows.

In a freewheeling chat with Mysoorunews.com Kaushal who will be turning 27 on March 29 said ” i have worked with a leading fashion school in the world called Istituto Marangoni Miami. I’m also a national level tennis player and represented Karnataka in tennis during 2011 and national level dancer and also state level gymnast. I did my masters in design and media management at Miami international university of art and design and I did my bachelors at the National Institute of engineering (NIE) Mysuru in information science and engineering branch from 2011 to 2015. I did my evening fashion design course at Queens school of designing Mysuru”.

Kaushal Vishukumar is equally talented in dance and gymnastics.

According to Kaushal, how he achieved in the realm was a dream he never dreamt of as to be honest he didn’t have anyone in this field of fashion and films. Except for his aunt who works in Tamil filmdom. His first show was launched in February 2014, at Windflower Resort in Mysuru and since then, he has never looked back. He has 40 shows to his credit in Bengaluru, Hubballi, Madurai, Chennai etc., like College- Vidyavardhaka Sanga, Vidya Vikas Institute of Engineering and Technology, SJCE, NIE- IT, AIISH, corporate like Infosys in Mysuru and Bengaluru, Inatech, Syniverse, Analog devices, Yuva Dasara 2014, Mysuru Reshme Parampare Utsava for KSIC, outside shows etc.,

“I think it worked out because I started at a very young age. Qualities needed for that is the determination, dedication, persistence and network and more important thing the blessings of  god almighty and family. With this you will surely achieve. I don’t know how much I have achieved, as I take things one day at a time and I push myself to be hard and strong so that I can push myself to do better everyday”, says uber confident Kaushal.

Well my gurus are so many of them, I can’t just name one, as all my teachers and professors who taught me all my life, my show producers, my directors that I worked all of them are my guru. For record, mention can be made of Asha Jayram, Rakhee Rashinkar, Jackiee Hill many more…”, said Kaushal.

But, the designer who I look up to is Manish Manotra, Indian American designers like Naeem khan, Bibu Mohapatra and American designers like Micheal Kors, Calvin Klien etc…

Achievement and Awards : Kaushal who is currently living in the US with one of less visa that a foreign national can have which is called O visa. It’s a visa given to individuals with extraordinary ability in their field, which he got in fashion, for example, he says “Priyanka chopra came to US with same visa but she was given this visa as an actor”. Not much Individuals get this especially because most of the Indians living in the US are all in technology. For him, going to US in the filed of arts and getting this Visa itself is a unique and rare situation.
