5 Gen-Next Designers to Look Out For

There's no dearth of fashion designers and labels in India today. But, there are a few that are making headlines with their work, be it for their exemplary craftsmanship and tailoring or unconventional ideas and designs.

Here are a few of our favourites this year. 

1. Studio Rigu by Riya Gupta

Transitional clothing, with just the right amount of vintage, is what sets this brand apart. Designed for the travelling woman, Riya Gupta uses breathable fabrics and is bringing back graphic prints like polka dots and stripes for some modern-day power dressing.

2. Essé by Sahib & Sunayna

Feminine but powerful silhouettes, daring sheers and even more daring themes, Essé's designs are marked by impeccable tailoring and exaggerated trims and details.

3. Label Vandana Malhotra

Vandana Malhotra is one of the few new-age designers who is trying to bring back traditional techniques of embroidery like Chikankari or Gota Patti and is doing it with intricate and delicate handiwork and lots of panache. 

4. Antar-Agni by Ujjwal Dubey

In an environment saturated with sherwanis and suits for men, Antar-Agni by Ujjwal Dubey has really nailed the edgy, asymmetrical aesthetic with its focus on thoughtful and meticulous design, while bringing wearability and a fresh modern approach to Indian men's fashion.

5. Saaksha & Kinni

This brand has been known for its bold and formal silhouettes as well as geometric prints and patterns, a clash of contrasting aesthetics that really go together in their designs. Power suits, sheer kaftans, and evening gowns with embroidered jackets in metallic and gemstone shades of purples, greens and rusts, all fun, playful and statement-making.
