September was a big month for local couture brand, Sanskrit. Owned by Komal Mirchandani, the brand features a range of high-end designers, including Satya Paul, Payal Singhal and Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor, to name a few.
This month, to showcase their respective new collections, Sanskrit brought down some of their biggest names: Hemant & Nandita, Rabani & Rakha and Rohit Mittal.
Hemant & Nandita
Inspired by the modern woman, Hemant & Nandita’s collection is all about working girls who enjoy dressing up and living a luxurious lifestyle. With an international presence, the brand’s new collection features a range of innovative designs in two main sections: resort-wear and Indo-Western wear. What makes the brand unique is their signature, imprinted on each garment, setting them apart from their contemporaries and making them exclusive. Hemant & Nandita is worn by celebrities such as Soha Ali Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Asin.
Rabani & Rakha
The idea of Rabani & Rakha is to create and focus on femininity and timelessness. Be it a 5-year old piece or an outfit from their latest collection, the brand always stands out as being able to make any woman look her best. With an array of garments including saris, lehengas and dresses, there is always the aim to remain grounded to their roots with the influence of ethnic Indian patterns and stones while creating an international appeal. Rabani & Rakha is worn by celebrities such as Elizabeth Hurley, Victoria Beckham and Deepika Padukone.
The inspiration for Rohit Mittal’s collections come from the motherland and everything there, in particular the jewellery and the traditions. Known for adorning their garments with bling, the brand is recognised and appreciated globally through their interaction with the public and consumers. Made for the contemporary woman, he keeps outfits simple which he suggests should be accessorised with chandelier earrings and an embellished clutch. In three words, Rohit Mittal describes his collection as: edgy, bright and modern.
