Create comfortable clothes for the women of today & tomorrow, that can help them express themselves outside of the molds and boxes created for them. We use classic textiles in contemporary styles to create clothes you can wear every day. Our clothes are intended to be a medley of Indian and modern. From our fabrics to the accessories to our tailors, everybody and everything is unabashedly Indian. But our designs, they are most definitely modern.
