For centuries India has been the heartland of exquisite handicrafts, textiles and unique surface texturing techniques.
The magnificent Indian culture inspires many Indian fashion designers to bring exclusivity to their artwork. Also, it has given the fashion industry some of the great fashion creators who have made their mark in the international market.
Here's our list of 5 upcoming Indian labels to look out for !
1- Bloni by Akshat Bansal
Sustainable fashion is not always perceived to be fashionable - but Akshat Bansal's Bloni speaks of modern ethical luxury that transcends beyond the borders of creativity to encapsulate purpose and expression. Akshat studied at the Central Saint Martins (London) & NIFT (India). He trained as an apprentice at Saville Row (London) and Tarun Tahiliani.
Akshat explains the uniqueness of his work stating, “What I believe is in something which is modern and also has an ethical value to it and which is sustainable in terms of its fabric and its thinking. A lot of garments are made out of marine plastic waste, recycled nylon and yet the look is luxurious and comfortable.
Known for his signature tie & dye and pieces such as bralettes and jackets, the designer claims his designs are travel-friendly, long lasting and adhere to the philosophy of buying less and using more.
A minimalist, slow fashion brand created to embrace the capsule wardrobe concept, Chillosophy takes cue from architecture, fine art, geometrical figures and the natural world to design its timeless collections of apparel. In a world of visual excess, it is rare for artists to strip their work down to bare essentials — but that is precisely what the label has accomplished. It sets aside the usual flourishes that trail contemporary high-end fashion and presents its wearer with a perfect mix of simplicity, elegance and a distinctly urban vibe.
Chillosophy specialises in a look that is stylish without being extravagant. In a very efficient manner, Chillosophy has made its way up and provided a balance between sophisticated, relaxed and subtle clothing — carefully constructed with superior materials, accents and detail. It’s all you need to powerfully reflect the confidence within you.

comfort are what the E.Z.R.A experience is all about!
