Abraham & Thakore is one of India’s most successful and respected design resources for fashion and accessories. David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore, graduates of the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad initially established the design label in 1992, later joined by Kevin Nigli, a design graduate of NIFT Delhi. The brand was initially launched with a handmade collection of scarves and kimonos, in exclusive stores in London and Le Bon Marche in Paris started carrying the Abraham & Thakore collections.
The label is known to craft contemporary yet non-conforming fashion that lasts seasons. The design sensibility is low key with a strong respect for material, form and craft and reflects the way we live in urban India, creating fashion and textiles rooted in our Indian identity yet with a contemporary and international take. In a consumer world of mass-produced fast fashion, Abraham & Thakore reiterates the belief that real luxury lies in specially crafted product in limited numbers of high quality.
