They endeavoured to make the most of every opportunity that came their way. There, they got maximum opportunities to show their talent and got to make various designs. Over time, they were made responsible of dealing with clients, understanding their requirements and ensuring delivery of good finished products. Handling clients independently made them realise different tastes of people from various walks of life and also how to develop a design from scratch i.e. from taking an order to delivering the finished garment correctly and on time.
