BACKSTAGE ~ Life in the Studio !

Amisha Kothari Label - Backstage

Our products tell a story, the story of India.  Each Collection is created with Indian artisanal crafts and techniques, as a starting point. Today some of these craft traditions are lost but at Amisha Kothari Label, we are sensitive to them and love to hold on to this priceless invaluable know-how like hand block printing, hand embroidery, and patwa work. The result is always brilliant, of impeccable quality, each bearing a distinct signature of the hands that make them.  

At Amisha Kothari Label, we believe in the beauty of the imperfection of the human hand. Each of our products go through several hand processes before they reach your closet. From hand block printing to embroidery, to finally being stitched by master tailors in our atelier, we love and value the timeless essence of working with hand, the fact that each piece is same but still unique. Each bearing a distinct signature of the hands that make them. Back in the studio, (we are not complaining but) our days can be hectic. However, what makes it worthwhile is the chance to meet the diverse set of artisans and crafts people spanning different generations, who support our brand by working tirelessly behind-the-scenes.

Details matter to us. And, we know they matter to you too. This is why all the pieces from Amisha Kothari, be it simple kurta sets for every day to intricate festive styles, are thoughtfully put together and meticulously executed. Embroidery and trimmings, an essential Indian know-how for us. We are keen to maintain traditions and give a new lease of life to these ancestral arts. One of the traditional crafts we use is the “Patwa” work or Thread craft. Traditionally PATWAS were weavers engaged in jewelry-making business and worked with silver and golden threads. We are sensitive to this dying craft…and have today tried to revive it by incorporating it as signature tassels for all our dupattas…Modern but always in line with tradition…

SHWET ~ Eternal Whites to start afresh !

amisha-kothari-label-journal-edit-shwet-bagh-kurta-set

Grace and magnificence blend effortlessly in a collection that’s as classic as it is contemporary, accentuated by delightful cross-stitches and heritage hand embroidery. The SHWET Edit, started as a blank canvas both literally and metaphorically at our studio. White is classic, timeless, and one of the most recurrent colors of the fashion cycle. Its allure never goes out of style. This became the genesis for our edit, SHWET.

Versatile, feminine, and replete with classics, SHWET is a timeless edit by Amisha Kothari that works well for all types of occasions. Many of the silk kurta set pieces are doused in the minimalism of French lace detailing and delicate pearls while others are sprinkled with some of our signature prints, handmade tassels, and gota Patti finishing. The result was artisanal kurta sets that showcase our craft perfected for many, many years. It’s a collection we love for its simplicity. The looks from this collection are made for joy and serenity.

Amisha Kothari ~ The face behind the brand!

Amisha Kothari ~ The face behind the brand !

Apparent in her designs that are wrapped in an air of palpable vibrancy,  Amisha Kothari Label is greatly influenced by the rich cultural heritage of the designer. These impressions were formed in her formative years when Amisha spent her summer holidays in Rajasthan, subconsciously absorbing the aesthetics of her native state. Later, she built on this love and got herself a degree in Fashion Design from Sophia’s Polytechnic, Mumbai.

Her very first collection was a testimony to her unique voice and the story of her roots. By combining age old artisanal techniques like block printing, gota patti and thread work with a modern anti-fit appeal, Amisha emerged as one of India’s most promising pret designers. Amisha returned to the workspace in 2016 after the birth of her daughter, Ananyashree – as a new mother, with greater inspiration from life itself.

She continues to share her inspiring designs at her trunk shows across Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Dubai and Singapore. All the while making a fashionable difference to her clients’ lives at her brand new studio in Mumbai’s art deco district, Marine Drive.

In the times to come, she aspires to find a strong global presence for her unique offering of affordable ethnic designer wear, created from the rich repository of Indian crafts and artisanal techniques as she leads the way without compromising on the basic elements that form the cornerstone of quality.
