A Family Business
How it began
Our brand was founded by father and daughter duo, Siva and Aarabhi. The project began in 2017 at their London home where the business is still run from today. Aarabhi studied fashion design and while she was at university, she discovered her love of embellishment and pattern. Siva has a wealth of knowledge, working within the UK fashion industry. With Aarabhi's creative mindset and Siva's commercial experience, it made sense for them to partner up and start their own brand.
I wanted to start a womenswear brand with ethical manufacturing as a core value and to highlight the work of dedicated artisans. With my South Asian roots and British upbringing, I have approached design by combining the two, creating unique and intricate garments. I don't believe in clothes lasting just one season, so when I design I keep this in mind and create pieces that can be worn for all occasions.
Having worked on the business side of fashion businesses in UK and Australia for small/medium sized organisations, supporting my daughter with her vision seemed the sensible next step. It's has been a challenge for both of us to work as business partners, a challenge that we have both enjoyed !
