Some of our favourites styles from Delhi Couture Week as shown by the participating designers - this time it is Shantanu & Nikhil. A little bit about Indian Fashion Designer Shantanu & Nikhil.
Shantanu & Nikhil have a deeper, less obvious take on this new exotic fusion. Their ensembles present eternal femininity draped in lush classicism and the brand has come to epitomise refinement and luxury in fashion. While keeping the handwriting essentially subtle with Indian monochromatic tones, the language is most definitely contemporary and silhouette centric.
The creative half of the team, Nikhil Mehra pursued his Masters in Fashion from Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandise (FIDM), Los Angeles, while Shantanu completed his MBA in finance from Ohio State University. Thereafter, Nikhil worked directly under Mrs. Gray for St. John Knits, while Shantanu was with the corporate finance wing of General Motors. Their love affair with USA ended in 1999, after which both came back to India to chase their dream of launching a fashion brand that could be housed in the very essence of a business of fashion set-up.
Shantanu & Nikhil have dressed the best of the best ranging from leading sports personalities of the world like Serena Williams, Sania Mirza, Zaheer Khan, Irfan Pathan, Glen McGrath, Stephen Fleming to Bollywood stars like Hrithik Roshan, Shahrukh Khan, Dia Mirza, A.R..Rehman, Kunal Kapoor, Abhay Deol, Kareena Kapoor, Sameera Reddy, Sonam Kapoor Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Shilpa Shetty & Deepika Padukone.
