Shweta Kapoor has undoubtedly come a long way to become quite the global phenomenon, since her label launched in 2012. Starting out as a graduate from the prestigious London College of Fashion in 2011, she trained under some of the biggest names in both Indian fashion (Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla) as well as International fashion (Burberry London).
Her label 431-88 is based out of Delhi and specialises in womenswear. Her contemporary styles are carefully crafted to cater to the modern woman and pays extra attention towards comfort. Her collections focus equally on casual wear and occasional-wear, meaning her collections can truly be styled to any occasion.
The brand 431-88 consistently displays a focus on detailing and clean cuts. The success of the collection lies within the distortion between great silhouettes of the past and the simple cuts of today. The brand is an evolution of contemporary Indian fashion and gives its garments an additional abstract feeling through reduction of traditional seams and darts. 431-88 proves that the sophistication truly is in the simplicity.
