Fashion Story

 Rao, the designer behind the eponymous label and a mother of two, has reimagined these tales with subliminal lehengas, contemporary saris, show-stopping dresses, and gowns. What’s more? Many of the pieces bring back the lost luster of the most ubiquitous fabric spotted during yesteryear Indian weddings—tissue—minus the fraying.

 Muse Diana Penty

“Each ensemble stands out on its own; it’s a collection that ought to make it to every bride’s wish list! The tissue saris and lehengas, especially, bring back fond memories from family get-togethers and weddings I used to attend as a child.”

Designer Aisha Rao on her Collection

“The refined details of appliqué, the classic silhouettes, and the moody colour scheme are made for the discerning buyers of today. Plus, what makes these pieces even more special, is how they use discarded fabrics to make something that’s one-of-a-kind. Sustainability is IN.”
