Schiralli’s motivation to pursue his work stems from finding what you want to do, then committing to achieving that goal. He began his career studying industrial design, which he found didn’t suit him. He then began incorporating clothing influences into his design assignments with his professor's approval. From that point forward he decided to pursue fashion design. Fully committing to his work, he managed to successfully start up his own brand. With Index, he wanted to offer people his personal designs that work with the expensive techwear/ninja style, while at the same time try to do it better. Having his own brand and being able to fly someone into the city to model new collections offers a feeling of accomplishment. His drive is to turn his concepts into reality, even if they don’t end up being successful, because at the end of the day he is having fun doing what he wants to do.
