Shalini & Paras
Geisha Designs is a combination of two extremely exacting individuals who focus not only on growth but also on epitomizing style, craftsmanship, utility and refinement.
Their designs reflect a wide spectrum of silhouettes and style, attempting to rejuvenate ideas towards the renewal of contemporary life. The duo try to put emphasis on concrete themes and experiment with colour combinations and exotic fibres bringing in harmonious blend between the new and the old.
Their formative years were spent as an intern under the tutelage of some of the leading names from the Indian Fashion Industry which has guaranteed Shalini and Paras' practical and technical expertise. Having studied in the best designs centers like NIFT (National institute of fashion technology, New Delhi) and FIT (fashion institute of Technology new york) they form a powerful and committed duo.
The joining of two people with common vision but individual strengths complementing each other created Geisha Designs.
"There is something superficial and volatile about the seasonal and elusive whims of fashion which offends our sense of beauty". And therefore Shalini and Paras persevere to sustain a feeling of enchantment in this world of fashion that never tires, changes, never dies.
Their ultimate aim is to amaze themselves. The anticipation of discovering new possibilities becomes their greatest joy.
