Minimal splendour
She started her career as a chartered accountant but her mother’s passion for designing garments eventually rubbed off on her. Disha Doshi Gandhi attended design school in the evenings for almost a year, after which she joined London School of Fashion and completed her diploma.

The designer finally launched her own label in 2015, which reinvents classic styles for women of global disposition.

In a chat with Surupasree Sarmmah, Disha talks about her journey and the process of creating chic and detailed aesthetics.

Let us about your style of work...
I work with traditional outfits and give them a twist. For example, a kurta with a contemporary cut is one of my styles. Cuts and colours are my forte and I look at creating  timeless elegance.

Describe your designs in two words...
Minimal and dressy.

Any thoughts of venturing out to menswear?
Yes, I am planning to in a couple of years. I would like to venture in to kids wear also.

Favourite fabric to work with...
Tussar georgette.

Which fabric is the most challenging to work with?
Chiffon.

Your latest collection looks quite comfortable...
My latest collection is called ‘Meira’. It is a connection between two worlds and is inspired by the free spirited women of today and the women of native tribes. The silhouettes are edgy, the colours range from dark to neutral hues and pastels and there is a presence of traditional embroidery like ‘Kantha’ and thread works.

The fashion scene in India in three words...
Culture-based, authentic and experimental.

Who do you look up to?
I have worked with Manish Malhotra for four months and I admire the way he works.

A celebrity you would like to work with...
Aditi Rao Hydari. She is beautiful and can carry any style effortlessly.

An advice that changed your life...
The one advice that really helped me grow is ‘to network and talk about your problems in the industry, without fearing that they will steal your ideas’.
