Sanchita SS 19
Sanchita Lookbook Spring Summer 2019
Bombay-born Sanchita attended Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne, Paris, and completed a Masters in Fashion and Technology from Domus Academy, Milan, before doing her apprenticeship with Issey Miyake in Japan. She has since worked alongside Alexander Mcqueen, Franco Moschino, Tom Ford, Alber Elbaz and Romeo Gigli, A childhood in Vienna and Egypt, schooling in England, Paris and Milan, and a strong attachment to her Indian roots, are all threads in the rich tapestry of visual and cultural references to be found in Sanchita’s work. A Japanese dyeing technique on an Italian velvet with Indian natural indigo, draped in contemporary European shapes, is one example of the layering involved in each piece.
