Gayatri Khanna (Preliminary Member)

‘GAYATRI’ by designer Gayatri Khanna from India, is a luxury prêt brand consisting of every aspect of a woman’s wardrobe, right from day wear to evening and cocktail dresses. Gayatri Khanna style is that of modern and chic silhouettes with innovative embellishments and interesting prints that are trend setting and practical and look fabulous on women of all ages across the globe. Never having compromised on style, fabric, finishing or professionalism, the brand is synonymous with understated glamour.
Launched in Dec 2006, Gayatri expressed her fashion interest by designing her own Luxury Line of clothes which premiered in March 2007 at the Lakme Fashion Week. Gayatri’s first ever showcase of her creations gave her an overwhelming response and then there was no looking back.
Her style can be described as European inspired prints and embellishments being her forte creating a look that is glamorous, edgy and global. The experience she gained from working with the International fashion brands and gurus in Milaaya Embroideries helped her stay in sync with the global fashion trends and styles and she ingeniously incorporated these in her design sensibilities. Gayatri, who also believes in using her platform to promote a social cause, won accolades for her collection based on the themes of Global Warming and; Saving our Coral Reefs.
 The label has come a long way since then, stocking with the top-notch buyers all over India and even globally in UAE and Finland.
We have been regularly featured in some of the most widely read fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan etc. The brand has styled some of the most well known faces which include the likes of Aishawarya Rai Bachchan, Shilpa Shetty, Deepika Padukone among other Bollywood actors as well as some of the most elite socialites. Besides participating in the Lakme Fashion Week, Mumbai and Wills India Fashion Week, Delhi, Gayatri has also done special shows for Swiss Guess Watches, Audi, a 5 city show for Mercedes Benz, Blenders Pride, designed a range of bed linens for Portico New York as well as fashion shows the hugely popular IPL(Indian Premier League) Season 3 After-Match parties. She was also invited to participate and showcase at the Indian Premier London Fashion Week-London in May,2010.
After graduating from Babson College Gayatri moved to New York and worked with various garment companies before getting a job at Saks Fifth Avenue as a buyer for designer wear.
Her initial experience in New York gave her the confidence of going solo and in May 2000, Gayatri ventured out to incorporate Milaaya Embroideries in the US and India. Today having expanded its base over four fashion capitals of New York, Mumbai , Milan and Paris , Milaaya Embroideries provides complete packages with fabrics, trims, embroideries, embellishments, stitching and packaging for global fashion brands like Gucci, Chloe, Versace, Lanven, Givenchy, Roberto Cavalli, Stella McCartney, Emilio Pucci, Kenzo, Christopher Kane, Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Anna Sui to name a few.
