Kapil & Mmonika launched their eponymous label in 2006 when they discovered a serious vacuum in ‘customised couture’. The foundations of their collections are based upon the idea of femininity, focusing on youth glamour and sophistication. The duo always had a romantic philosophy behind their designs being inspired by all things beautiful and categorising their styles as ‘luxurious yet understated’
Their collections appreciate the use of fabrics, cuts and colours to emphasise and improve shape and silhouette. By fusing tailoring with drapery, the designs have a revised old world charm that many designers don’t include in their collections. They also have an exceptional appreciation of traditional Indian crafts, blending these with western crafts to create unique and intricate collections.
The label specialises in Couture and Bridal wear but has also recently launched a luxury prêt collection to further their reach. They cater to a long list of renowned names in India, including Bollywood stars (Karishma Kapoor, Rohit Roy, Mugdha Godse, Prachi Desai), socialites, politicians and even sportspeople across India. They also have a Flagship store in Delhi providing menswear, womenswear and kidswear.
