When did you realize that you wanted to be a fashion designer?

I never did think that I was ever going to end up in the fashion industry because my world revolved around fine arts & graphic design. My turning point was when my dad bought me a Male Fashion Magazine and told me that he saw the magazine and thought of me. Since then, I started developing an interest in designing clothes for the fun of it, blending fine art & fashion to create something extraordinary.
