Fashion designer Prathyusha Garimella

Fashion designer Prathyusha Garimella was found dead in her home in Banjara Hills on Saturday afternoon under suspicious circumstances. She was 35 years old and allegedly committed suicide at her boutique studio. According to the police officials, a carbon monoxide cylinder has been recovered from her bedroom. The Circle Inspector of Banjara Hills has stated that she was found lying in the bathroom and that her body has been shifted to Osmania hospital for PME.  The police, who initially treated it as a death under suspicious circumstances, later found a suicide note. She reportedly wrote that she was fed up with her lonely life, saying that this was not the life she was aspiring for.

The fashion designer wrote she did not want to be a burden on her parents and that she was sorry for taking the extreme step.

Prathyusha worked as a fashion designer for several leading Bollywood and Tollywood personalities.

The watchman told the police that Prathyusha had come to the boutique on Saturday morning and when she did not come out till afternoon, he went to check on her. As she did not respond to repeated knocks on the door, he alerted the neighbours, who informed the police.

The police suspect the fashion designer took the extreme step due to depression.

Actor Ram Charan's wife Upasana Konidela took to Twitter to condole the death of her friend.

"My bestie, my dearest friend. Gone too soon - Upset/Pissed/Sad - She had the best of everything, career, friends & family, yet succumbed to depression. Post this incident, truly believe that karmic baggage passes through lifetimes. We pray for her peace," Upasana wrote.

Last year, Prathyusha had told Femina that prior to starting off her fashion career, she had studied in the UK for her master's following which she joined her father's business - LED manufacturing company. However, soon it dawned on Prathyusha that she wasn't cut out for the job and that her interests were somewhere elsewhere.

For the unversed, Prathyusha, who was the founder of her own label named Prathyusha Garimella, used to run a fashion studio in Banjara Hills. She had worked as a fashion designer for leading celebrities Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Jacqueline Fernandez and several Tollywood personalities.
