"At Hemant & Nandita we believe in creating timeless pieces that are inspired by the colours and beauty of Indian culture and tradition."
It wasn’t about following trends. It wasn’t about creating pieces for the moment. Very much like their journey in life, they saw everlasting designs that will effortlessly transition from season to season and occasion to occasion.
Hemant & Nandita share a unique story that takes them back to their youth. They met at NIIFT Mohali and as days went by a beautiful friendship was formed. Soon, they became each others’ person. And for this power duo their friendship only marked the beginning of an incredible journey.
Like two pieces of perfectly cut cloth, their stories are stitched together to create something wonderful for every woman, irrespective of shape and size. Their story is seen in their designs, in their way of working and in what the brand stands for.
For them it is more than a vocation. It is their passion that drives them to curate these marvellous dresses, tops, skirts and so much more. It's happiness. The joy in seeing your designs come alive. And this is something that is seen in every step of Hemant & Nandita.
Hemant & Nandita is a brand that encapsulates feminism by broadening its designs and meeting current trends while remaining true to who they are. When you wear their design you’re, in a way, wearing a statement. A statement that changed the way Indian women defined comfortable clothing.
A true artist is not inspired by the large monuments but in the smaller details that define its grandiosity. While the world might admire the beauty of Taj Mahal, you might find Nandita taking her cultural cues from the what is around the Taj Mahal itself and that is what makes their designs unique, Indian and spectacular.
Inspired by journeys, Nandita lets her imagination guide her. Her thoughts often travel to the beauty of Jaipur. Jaipur fascinates her in every sense of that word. Every visit reveals a startling discovery that leads her back to the drawing board. The block prints, the ethnic motifs and even the pom-poms that freely dangle from artfully decorated trucks. While Jaipur remains close to her heart, it is India and its culture that keeps her imagination flowing.
She takes inspiration from gorgeous Kashmiri pherans that adorn the beautiful people of Kashmir. Paisley, that take their own form from North to South India. Even the textures and patterns of bed spreads found in the heart of Dilli Haat are ques to the next collection.
Every design showcases expert craftsmanship. Each garment with a peculiar, unexpected and playful signature that would’ve easily been missed if one didn’t share a keen eye for detail. Next time you get an opportunity to look at or wear one of their designs, take a closer look. You might be looking at your outfit in a whole different light.
While you take a minute to examine these spectacular creations, you will begin to understand it's worth. You will see reasoning beyond doubt that these pieces are made to last.
When you purchase Hemant & Nandita, you lock a place in your closet for life.
