Gauri & Nainika Karan launched their label Gauri & Nainika in January 2002 in New Delhi. An eveningwear brand with styles ranging from cocktail dresses to elaborate bespoke gowns, the label offers glamorous, elegant and chic clothing for women. With a design philosophy that is distinctly feminine and European, their collections are being retailed at exclusive boutiques in India and the Middle East.
The label caters to those who like to dress with a sense of occasion. The styles are for a self-determining woman who is sophisticated, elegant and embraces femininity in fashion.
Gauri & Nainika Karan grew up in New Delhi. Though originally students of economics, they were always inclined towards fashion and the creative arts. After studying at The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT, New Delhi), they launched their ready-to-wear label Gauri & Nainika. They grew up inspired by the classics and the romantic look of old Hollywood heroines such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly whose timeless elegance has been incorporated in their designs.
The collection, touted to be fiercely feminine is based on power dressing of the 80’s to the golden era which will be reflecting styles which are fun, free and light.
Ashwath Swaminathan, Head of Innovations Lakme said, “Looking forward to Gauri & Nainika’s show that will bring alive lightness with energy in a way never seen before.”
