East meets west in more ways than one in this London-based designer’s works
Born and bred in the Maximum City, designer Neishaa Gharat might be a resident of London now, but this Mumbai-girl still remains firmly grounded in her roots. And that’s something that’s best seen in her work. Her brand House of Gharats fuses east and west, where bold colours meet fresh patterns in a variety of garments, accessories and artefacts, all conceived by Gharat, but executed in traditional techniques by Indian textile craftsmen. How does a niche and essentially Indian design brand work in a global city like London? AD gets the talented young designer’s perspective.
